Tennis Infrastructure Planning Design & Delivery Resource

An updated publication soon to be made available to clubs, local and state government agencies and other key stakeholders is the ‘Tennis Infrastructure Planning Design and Delivery Resource‘.  One of the key concepts introduced in this publication is the Project Pathway – a project management tool that can guide clubs to a deliver well-planned and sustainable projects.

Following this project management process will:

  • Ensure the consistent, justifiable and strategic delivery of infrastructure projects.
  • Form a mandatory requirement for any project funding requests under the National Court Rebate and the Facility Loan Program.
  • Assist with identifying resource requirements and stakeholder management in order to facilitate the delivery of quality tennis projects.
  • Provide input at critical stages of any project, depending on the specific nature of each development.

Tennis West Information Sessions – Funding Opportunities for Capital Projects

Tennis West held two information sessions in February relating to funding opportunities for capital works projects.

The first focused on Tennis Australia’s national funding Scheme the National Court Rebate, (NCR) and the processes which take place during the application stages.  The key message to all who attended was the the importance of good strategic planning prior to committing to the design, funding, project management and operational support for any project.


A Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) information evening was hosted at the Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries on 27 February.  Kent Barton, Facilities Consultant – Sport and Recreation, presented on the grant process for the CSRFF and gave valuable advice as what projects are most likely to attract funding.

  • Small Grants – $7,500 -$200,000 ex GST (Min Grant $2,500- Max Grant $66,666
