1 June 2021 | Tennis Tasmania

Tennis Tasmania acknowledges the Traditional and Original Custodians of the land on which we meet, play and learn, and we pay our respects to elders past and present. ⁣⁣
We acknowledge the Traditional name for Tasmania, lutruwita, in palawa kani, the language of Tasmanian Aborigines, with thanks to the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre.

National Reconciliation Week
is underway, with the 2021 theme being More than a word.
Reconciliation takes action, urging the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.  Tennis Tasmania is committed to supporting NRW and the principles for which it stands.
We have committed to developing a formal Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) with the aim of supporting our tennis community in developing an environment that fosters higher levels of knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions, for the benefit of our whole community.

Tennis Australia
in conjunction with its Member Associations want to continue to provide more accessibility and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to participate and engage in tennis through educating clubs and coaches, enhancing talent identification, providing pathway opportunities, creating more playing opportunities through community events and tournaments and providing funding for Indigenous tennis programs, equipment and coaches.Read more about these initiatives and partnerships, including the National Indigenous Tennis Carnival and Evonne Goolagong Foundation, HERE.Check out 20 Actions you can take for Reconciliation in 2021 here:
