Anyone wishing to represent Tasmania at the National Indigenous Tennis Carnival in Darwin is encouraged to participate.

The annual carnival celebrates youth, culture, music, food and sport through the delivery of tennis, cultural activities and workshops. The carnival has two types of competitions available, participation and performance, to allow participants of all abilities to be involved. The 2019 edition runs from 29 August–1 September.

Three players represented Tasmania at the inaugural event in 2018, which Mae Ganambarr of Taroona described as “an amazing opportunity (that) opened so many doors for me culturally, socially and athletically.”
