One of the main objectives of sport is to pursue optimal achievement. To develop progressions and measure this achievement requires the application of sport science. A key area of sports science in through strength and conditioning programming to help athletes to be stronger, faster, powerful, agile and have more resilience to endure physically and psychologically. The purpose of this study is to provide an overview for the need of applying sport science to improve the physical condition of junior tennis athletes. Data was collected from 11 (6 male and 5 female) players at Tennis Plus Bandung, aged 14 years. The methodology used in this research is a descriptive method to describe the comparison of data collected from a pre-determined battery of tests of the subjects’ current physical condition and physical condition from researched normative data for male and female aged 14 years. Three instrument tests used were, namely: Push up for upper body strength, 20m sprint for speed, and Bleep test for endurance. Results showed only 1 male subject was above the norm for speed.
