It was a year that could have significantly impacted our sport financially, and in participation. Instead, clubs, coaches and players, did a truly fantastic job of not only getting back on court, but thriving! Adapting to the new challenges, introducing new initiatives and working hard to meet Government regulations.
To assist with this work, over $675,000 was invested into club infrastructure across the state. As well as Grant money, clubs also saw a huge increase in Court Hire revenue – thanks to quick thinking committees who set up online bookings through Club Spark, to assist those in lockdown to get a court, contact free.
School kids had a fantastic year on court, with 142 schools delivering tennis, and Team Tennis being successfully delivered in all 3 regions. As well as the in school, and representative tennis, our juniors had some outstanding results in tournaments locally and interstate.
After years of planning, lobbying, fundraising and waiting, the Launceston Tennis Community and Events Centre (LTCEC) took some major steps forward, and is finally on its way. The centre will completely change how tennis operates on Racecourse Cres.
