Coffs Coast tennis is set for a funding boost with 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 at Ken Rosewall Arena.

Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said $360,000 is available to clubs, associations and councils across NSW.

“Sport is a huge part of our lifestyle here on the Coffs Coast,” Mr Singh said.

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

Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said the Fund supported 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.”

Tennis NSW CEO Lawrence Robertson said: “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. 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 5pm, 26 April.
