Multicultural Tennis

Tennis Australia, in conjunction with Member Associations, is committed to embracing diversity by ensuring our sport and events are 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 regardless of culture, ethnicity or any other defining characteristic.

Inclusion is about providing choice for people to participate in sport in a way that they feel comfortable.


Tennis Australia is committed to increasing opportunities and accessibility to tennis for multicultural communities:

  • Engagement with multicultural stakeholders and communities
  • Educating clubs and coaches
  • Creating inclusive playing opportunities through community events and tournaments.
