Tennis NSW

About Us

Tennis NSW is a member based not-for-profit organisation charged with growing, developing and promoting the Sport throughout NSW. As the central administrative body of tennis in NSW, it is our role to manage, coordinate, promote, and unify the diverse facets of this great sport.
The Board and senior management team updated the organisations strategy in April 2013, to align our business further with parent body Tennis Australia and to capitalise on the changing sporting and recreation landscape and consumer needs and expectations in Tennis.
Our objective remains unchanged – Be recognised as the No.1 sport and leisure activity in NSW by 2016. This will be supported by our strategic priorities, which are:


  • Increase the number of kids 10 & under participating in tennis
  • Attract more adults back to the game and keep them playing
  • Develop fun and innovative competitions for everyone in NSW
