ATP Cup legacy Fund a winner for community tennis

NSW grassroots tennis can apply for up to $360,000 in grants following the opening of Round 2 of the NSW ATP Cup Tennis Legacy Fund.

The NSW Government, in partnership with Tennis NSW, is investing $2.4 million over three years to ensure community tennis benefits from NSW hosting the ATP Cup.

Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said the Fund would support projects that improve community facilities and encourage participation across the State.

“The ATP Cup is a winner for grassroots tennis in NSW,” Mr Lee said.

“I encourage tennis clubs, associations and local councils to apply for a grant which will leave a fantastic legacy for tennis in NSW.

“With the world’s best players returning to Sydney in 2022 for the ATP Cup, the Legacy Fund will enable more girls and boys to emulate their heroes on Ken Rosewall Arena.”

Tennis NSW CEO Lawrence Robertson said the Fund will see community tennis flourish through projects which support facility upgrades.

“As we once again prepare to welcome the world’s best players to Sydney, Tennis NSW and the NSW Government are excited to open Round 2 of the NSW ATP Cup Tennis Legacy Fund,” Mr Robertson said.

“In Round 1 more than $240,000 was awarded to 19 projects, enabling the delivery of $1.52m in projects at clubs, associations and council facilities throughout the State.”

Round 2 of the ATP Cup Legacy Fund is open until 5.00pm, 26 April 2021.
