Council formally adopted the Maroondah Tennis Strategy at the Council meeting on 20 March 2023.

The strategy highlights key considerations that may influence tennis participation in Maroondah and may impact Maroondah tennis clubs, while acknowledging that other actions and projects may be identified to support changing community needs over time.

Deputy Mayor of Maroondah, Councillor Tasa Damante, said the strategy will help increase participation in tennis and support local tennis clubs.

“The Maroondah Tennis Strategy will provide a framework for supporting tennis clubs, which have long played a valuable role in sport and recreation options for the Maroondah community,” Cr Damante said.

“The strategy will also help improve accessibility to tennis in Maroondah and increase participation in the sport, which can be enjoyed by people of all genders and generations.”

The strategy builds on Council’s work in the tennis space, which saw Council receive the Supporting Tennis - Local Government Award at the 2022 Victorian Tennis Awards.

This work includes leading a regional tennis governance review and undertaking a facility infrastructure audit, as well as taking part in Tennis Victoria’s Thriving Tennis Communities Project as a pilot Council - a project that saw local tennis clubs review participation in the sport, along with reviewing their practices and procedures.

Council also collaborated with Tennis Victoria to engage with local tennis clubs to develop the draft Maroondah Tennis Strategy, which was then presented for feedback via Council’s Your Say Maroondah website in December 2022 and January 2023.

The Maroondah Tennis Strategy is available to read on Council’s website.
