Tennis NT is the administrative body of tennis in the Northern Territory. It is a not for profit Member Association of Tennis Australia.
It is Tennis NT’s role to coordinate, manage and promote the sport of tennis in the NT and in doing so, support and service our Members. Our core purpose is to help everyone in the NT have fun playing tennis for life (more people playing tennis for longer).
Tennis NT Heritage
Tennis NT was established in 1980 under the incorporated name of the Northern Territory Tennis Council. The organisation changed its identity in 2005 to Tennis NT Incorporated and trades simply as Tennis NT. Its establishment was the shared vision of the founding President, Mr Max Horton OAM and a small group of interested tennis players. Their vision foresaw the need for a ‘parent body’ to assume a role of guidance along with the benefits of establishing relationships with the Northern Territory Government and Tennis Australia.
