ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Community Grants open

Does your local tennis club need help to improve facilities or encourage more children to play? An ANZ Tennis Hot Shots community grant could help them achieve this.

ANZ, long-time supporters of the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots program, is awarding 20 Australian tennis clubs with a $10,000 grant in addition to merchandise, equipment, signage and access to a dedicated ANZ specialist.

ANZ Tennis Ambassador Dylan Alcott wants to see clubs taking advantage of this opportunity.

“ANZ’s new community grants will provide an opportunity to support the development or renovations of tennis clubs and venues across the country,” Paralympic gold medallist Alcott said.

“It gives us the chance to take something great and make it even greater, by providing more resources we’re helping tennis become more accessible for everyone which is something I’m passionate about.”

Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tiley thanked ANZ for their support.

“We are proud of our partnership with ANZ and are grateful for their ongoing support of grassroots tennis and their commitment to growing the game at all levels,” Tiley said.

“The community grants initiative gives clubs and players across the country the chance to improve their game on and off the court and we would encourage all ANZ Tennis Hot Shots clubs to apply and make the most of this exciting opportunity.”
