Programs & Events
Tennis NSW are committed to embracing diversity by ensuring our sport and events welcoming, safe and inclusive for everyone. We believe that being inclusive is reflecting the diversity of our local communities and that everyone should have the opportunity to be included and engaged through tennis in a way that is positive and meaningful for them.
Tennis NSW provide more accessibility and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to participate and engage in tennis through implementation of Indigenous participation programs, events, educating clubs and coaches and providing pathway opportunities.
