Tennis Victoria recognises that the protection of the environment is an integral part of our business.

Our affiliates and participants enjoy the experience of playing tennis in a clean environment and we want to ensure the ability to continue to do so. We believe that environmental damage is often avoidable and so will endeavour to do everything reasonably practicable to prevent it.

Tennis Victoria will:

  • Comply with all relevant legislative requirements relating to environmental protection and management
  • Be open and transparent about our organisation’s environmental performance
  • Promote the efficient use of resources, minimisation of waste and prevention of pollution in all our operations
  • Avoid actions that risk having significant adverse impacts on biodiversity, cultural and/or heritage assets or values
  • Actively encourage our employees, contractors, volunteers and suppliers to understand their responsibilities to minimise potential risks to the environment
  • Develop, monitor and strive to improve our environmental management performance.

Tread Lightly
TREADLIGHTLY
110 million shoes make their way to Australian shores each year, yet only 1% are collected and recycled after use. Tread Lightly is a national recycling initiative that takes unwanted sport and active lifestyle footwear and responsibly recycles it here in Australia to give it new life.

Upparel

Did you know Australians purchase 27kg of new textiles each year and then discard around 23kg into landfill – annually? Tennis Victoria has partnered with Upparel to repurpose our old staff uniforms. We now have a collection bin that will be available at some of our events and forums so affiliated clubs and players can help with the recycling process.
