About us


Tennis Australia

Tennis Australia is the governing body of tennis within Australia, linking to member associations throughout the country.

We promote and facilitate participation in tennis at all levels, and also conduct national and international tournaments. The most widely recognised of these include:

The Davis Cup
The Fed Cup
Australian Open
Tennis Pro Circuit
Australian Open Series


The origins of Tennis Australia date to 1904 when local players Norman Brookes and Alf Dunlop considered entering the newly formed Davis Cup. Before Australia could make a challenge it had to be represented by a national association. The Australasian Lawn Tennis Association was formed, embracing New Zealand interests, with three main functions:

To organise the Davis Cup challenge
To control interstate matches
To run the first annual championships in Melbourne, November 1905.

Role of Tennis Australia

The Lawn Tennis Association of Australia - trading as Tennis Australia (TA) - was established by the existing Member Associations (MAs) and New Zealand in late 1904. In 2004/05 we celebrated the centenary of the organisation and its marquee event - the Australian Open. Today TA is approaching a $100-million turn-over business, stages one of the world's four Grand Slam tournaments and operates as a one-team company unified under the brand 'tennis'.


To have the game of tennis clearly establish itself as the most popular sport and recreational activity in Australia and to ensure Australia has a pre-eminent position in world tennis.


To grow, manage, promote and showcase the sport of tennis throughout Australia, recognising the health, social, economic and entertainment benefits of sport, and tennis in particular, for people of both sexes, all ages and abilities.

Customers are TA's driving force as we move into our second century. Our priority is to identify who they are, what they want, how we can reach them and how we can provide them with a more enjoyable and rewarding tennis experience.

  • Our People are our strength, our differentiator, what distinguishes us from other sports. We recognise the importance of motivating and rewarding our staff and of capturing TA's tremendous intellectual capital and maximising the benefits of this capital by sharing it throughout the organisation.
  • Quality enriches every aspect of our business including our staff, our systems, our programs and operations, events and players.
  • Innovation fuels TA's future. The Australian Open is a global leader in event presentation and TA increasingly sets the standard in sports delivery.
