Sport and Recreation Strategies

Tennis Strategy - 2005

With 14 tennis facilities built on Council owned and/or managed land the Ballarat City Council plays a key role in the provision of these facilities. Comprising a total of 80 tennis courts, these venues have a replacement value of about $4 million.

Offering a range of programs and services to tennis players within the municipality, the Ballarat Tennis Federation, local tennis associations and tennis clubs are also supported by Council.

After analysing participation rates, reviewing the condition of tennis facilities and examining the range of tennis programs and services available across the municipality, the Tennis Development Strategy 2005 formulates a guide to improving tennis facilities over the next decade with recommendations to improve the sustainability and functionality of local tennis clubs and tennis associations.
