Tasmanian tennis clubs are set to benefit from a new partnership between Tennis Tasmania and Clubs Tasmania, a division of the Tasmanian Hospitality Association and the peak advocacy body for community clubs across the state.

With a mission statement focused on keeping local clubs strong and connected to their communities, Clubs Tasmania aims to help clubs, both large and small, reduce their operating costs, increase revenue and build sustainable practices.

“We are delighted to announce our association with Clubs Tasmania,” Tennis Tasmania General Manager Darren Sturgess said.

“This relationship will assist us in continuing to provide our 45 affiliated clubs with strategies, access to operating resources and sustainable solutions to help each club continue to grow on and off the court.”

“Some of the benefits Clubs Tasmania can offer include energy discounts, access to no-cost hospitality equipment and regular industry communications, which will provide value and service to our clubs.”

“With pennants, team tennis leagues and tournaments flourishing since the return to play, along with strong social tennis numbers on court, tennis clubs in the state are set for a busy summer.”

Clubs Tasmania Project Manager Andrew Moore visited the Domain Tennis Centre during the Hobart UTR Open in October to launch the partnership.

“Clubs Tasmania is proud to support Tennis Tasmania further strengthen the community tennis clubs across the state,” he said.

“Tennis clubs play an essential role in the health and wellbeing of Tasmanians and Clubs Tasmania is committed to helping those clubs not only survive, but thrive.”
