In the first funding round, Tennis NSW and the Office of Sport provided more than $240,000 to support facility upgrades and participation programs across NSW. It was exciting to see some of the innovative and community driven participation programs that are now underway thanks to the support of this funding.

Category 3 provides a fantastic opportunity to remove barriers to sport for groups such as people with disability, culturally and linguistically diverse groups, women and girls, as well as those needing support with mental health. It also supports more events in regional areas and encourages online booking to increase accessibility to our venues.
The second funding round for Categories 2 & 3 of the NSW ATP Cup Tennis Legacy Fund will close on Monday, 26 April 2021. $360,000 is available for eligible projects across both categories this round.
