TCAV was founded in 1956 to support the development of coaches and the game of tennis in Victoria.

Led by a TCAV board of management, TCAV plays an important role in education, training, promotion and management of tennis coaching. We work closely with Tennis Australia and Tennis Victoria to foster the game of tennis and coaching standards and we actively support our coaching members.

TCAV conduct an Annual Awards ceremony recognising the outstanding achievements of our members including awards for Hall of Fame, Life Members, Legends, 15 Year Service, George Gilmour Membrial Trophy (Club Coach of the Year), Rising Star and Rookie Coach.

We also conduct tennis tournaments including the TCAV Gold Junior Age Tournament and the TCAV AMT (Australian Money Tournament) Platinum in association with Tennis Australia. Further, the association runs a number of member social events and is a great support network for tennis coaches in Victoria.
