The best players in WA will have the opportunity to play high level matches in Super Rounds hosted at their club. They will contribute to a more vibrant domestic tennis industry and create a valuable marketing opportunity for their clubs.

The ATL rewards and recognises our players, creates a pathway for them to benchmark progression and gives prospective members an incentive to join a club. ATL clubs will engage with their teams through hosting rounds and including activations to benefit the local community and in particular the sponsors, local council and members. These clubs will enjoy growth and enhance their profiles in their communities. Tennis Australia facilitated by Tennis West, offer $60,000 to each state conference and $150,000 for the National Final, thereby helping clubs to leverage the ATL,  strengthen the tennis landscape and improve the tennis culture in their area.

We look forward to some fabulous “fast tennis” in November in WA and for the winning club, participation in the Melbourne Park final during the Australian Open in January, against the 5 best clubs in Australia and 3 Asian-Pacific countries.
