Have a Tennis Victoria Community Tennis Officer (CTO) attend your next committee meeting to assist in developing your club and getting the most out of your affiliation. CTOs can help your club build strong links with local council, schools, providers and community groups through the assistance of Tennis Victoria.
To ensure viability within the club it is vitally important to maintain relationships with key stakeholders. Tennis Victoria staff have built strong relationships with local councils, schools and other community organisations which can assist your club. Arrange a club visit from a Community Tennis Officer to assist – whether that be through attracting new members, club planning, revenue generation or facility development. Please contact Tennis Victoria on (03) 8420 8420 or your Community Tennis Officer directly to arrange a club visit.
