Cooper White IMG
One of the highlights for the Kooyong Foundation in 2020 was sending one of our finest young players, Cooper White, to the US to attend one of the most prestigious tennis academies in the world the IMG Academy in Florida.
Founded by one of the world’s finest coaches, Nick Bollettieri, it was there that stars like Andre Agassi, Boris Becker, Serena Williams and many others honed their game.
A group of Foundation and Club officials who were involved in raising the funds for the trip, which was also financially supported by his parents.
Cooper enjoyed a fruitful 3-month stint at IMG training with some of the best young players in the World and touring pros.

The Foundation and the Club have every reason to be proud of his development since joining the Foundation Scholarship program and expect him to have a very bright future.
