The Australian Tennis Foundation (ATF) is Tennis Australia’s Official Charity and aims to inspire brighter futures for children and young people. Through our partnerships, we can harness the power of tennis to help children and young people develop resilience, make healthy lifestyle choices and feel positive for their future.

We do this by:

  • Delivering resilience education through tennis
  • Promoting self-confidence and a sense of belonging
  • Partnering with like-minded organisations to create pathways for young people to achieve their full potential
