What is Places to Play?

The Places to Play team is responsible for ensuring the ACT community has access to a wide range of tennis venues and quality services.

The teams main objective is to create more inviting and quality places to play tennis through:

  • Partnering with Local Government Authorities and other stakeholders
  • Investing in tennis facilities
  • Ensuring venues have best management practices by implementing objective measures
  • Partnering with regional facilities for improvement

Tennis ACT works in consultation with the Tennis Australia Places to Play team to assist Clubs, Associations and Court Operators with matters such as leases, facility development, council’s tennis strategy and grants.
