What is P2P?
The Tennis SA Places to Play team is part of a National team ensuring the Australian community has access to a wide range and mix of welcoming tennis venues and quality services that will attract, engage and immerse people into the game of tennis.
Community expectation of tennis facilities is corresponding with other leading leisure facility options and must be met in order to attract and retain participants. Therefore it is important that we provide welcoming tennis facilities that promote a desirable, positive club culture and encourage socially engaged tennis players to play more tennis more often.
Increasing maintenance and replacement costs of court surfaces, fencing and the need to fund lighting has resulted in standards decreasing in tennis venue environments. The need for all stakeholders to financially plan for refurbishment and facility upgrades is critical and in order to do so local Governments and facility owners need to offer numerous tennis and non-tennis opportunities and be more commercially focused in order to create self-sustaining operations.
We have developed a range of services to help Local Government, Clubs and operators reach these goals.
We work closely with local and State Government across all matters pertaining to the future development of tennis in South Australia and is happy to assist clubs wherever possible in their discussions with their LGA. We can also assist Clubs with matters such as leases, facility development, council’s tennis strategy, grants etc.
If your Council, club, association, or school is thinking of upgrading, refurbishing, or building new tennis facilities please contact Tennis SA on (08) 7224 8100.
