Our Policies & Guidelines

Tennis Australia, in conjunction with Member Associations, is committed to embracing diversity by ensuring our sport and events are welcoming, safe and inclusive for everyone. We believe that being inclusive reflects the diversity of our local communities and that everyone should have the opportunity to be included and engaged through tennis in a way that is positive and meaningful for them regardless of their sex, sexuality, gender identity or any other defining characteristic.

Inclusion is about providing choices for people to participate in sports in a way that they feel comfortable. As well as mainstream tennis opportunities, there are a variety of LGBTQIA+-specific initiatives that people can choose to participate in.


Tennis Australia is committed to increasing opportunities and accessibility to tennis for LGBTQIA+ people through:

  • Engagement with LGBTQIA+ stakeholders and community
  • Educating clubs and coaches
  • Providing pathway opportunities
  • Creating equal playing opportunities through community events and tournaments

Transgender Inclusion Guidelines

We are proud to support the launch of the first draft of the Transgender Inclusion Guidelines for community tennis.

The guidelines aim to create awareness and inform clubs, coaches, participants and volunteers on how they can support people who identify as transgender. This resource also includes tips on how to foster positive experiences for all.

We thank Pride in Sport and our stakeholders for their support in developing this important resource.
