Because of the number of enquiries from Japanese tennis players interested in training and playing tournaments in Australia LifeTime International has appointed Tom Arakawa to act as their agent in Japan. Tom is based in Tokyo and has many years of experience in both the Australian and Japanese tennis systems. Tom has a daughter who is one of Japan's leading juniors, and travels with her to highly ranked Japanese open and junior tournaments as well as I.T.F. events.
Tom has also spent a number of years working for the Japanese government in Australia, and his daughter was heavily involved in the Australian tournament scene. She was also selected to represent her home state Queensland in interstate competition.
LifeTime International is very fortunate to have a person of Tom Arakawa's experience as their agent in Japan.
