The NSW ATP Cup Tennis Legacy Fund, established by Tennis NSW and the NSW Government, will invest over $5m into community tennis across NSW over three years (2020, 2021, 2022) targeting infrastructure, facility development and participation programs that support the growth of the game.

Ready to apply?


  • Once you have worked through all elements to get project ready, submitting a strong grant application will be more straightforward, as you have already collated key information and documentation. The Tennis NSW Grants Toolkit includes various resources and links to help you write your application.
  • Always review the specific Guidelines, eligibility requirements and application questions of each grant program, and review your Project Plan against the specific grant program objectives. It is a good idea to ask someone to edit and check your application prior to submitting your application via the required process.
  • Tennis NSW will provide a Letter of Support where projects are considered Project Ready, are aligned to Tennis objectives and requested well in advance grant programs closing. Please ensure you have engaged your local Tennis Development Officer on your journey to get project ready.

Obtaining funding through any grant funding program is very competitive and being project ready when applying for a grant can make the difference between successful and unsuccessful applications.

For further information, please contact your local Tennis NSW Regional Tennis Manager or Tennis Development Officer in the first instance and we will be happy to assist.
