Community feedback sought for Tennis Strategy

24 Nov 2021

City of Newcastle is inviting community feedback to help inform a new strategy that will guide the future provision and direction of tennis and bat ball facilities across the Newcastle local government area.

Community members can have their say via an online survey, and direct consultation will also be undertaken with tennis clubs, neighbouring councils, Tennis NSW and Venues NSW.

A review of the provision of tennis courts throughout Newcastle was a recommendation made in the city's Strategic Sports Plan, a ten-year plan that provides strategic guidance and facility advice for 13 outdoor sports, including tennis, to 2031.

The consultation will inform the development of a draft Tennis Strategy, which will then be reported to Council and placed on public exhibition for further community comment.

There are currently 61 tennis courts within 14 tennis centres throughout the city, and a further three bat ball courts, which prove popular amongst Newcastle's active community members.

City of Newcastle is committed to providing sporting infrastructure to provide opportunities for the community to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
