Australian Davis Cup Tennis Foundation
helping to advance Australian Tennis
The Australian Davis Cup Tennis Foundation was formed in September, 1971 with the object of providing financial assistance towards the cost of sending Australia’s team overseas for Davis Cup matches. Over the years, a policy has emerged of funding the development of young Australian players, showing Davis Cup potential, by direct player or official team assistance or, as currently, by financial support for selected Player Development Programs of Tennis Australia.
Currently, the Foundation has around 2000 members from all Australian States and Territories and the following countries: New Zealand, USA, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, France, Switzerland, Malaysia, Singapore, Netherlands and Thailand. The membership fee entitles members to apply for a limited number of ground passes and for “Priority Access” to purchase a limited number of tickets for the Australian Open. Members may also purchase tickets for all Davis Cup ties being played in Australia and, wherever possible, overseas. All members will receive an informative ‘Members Newsletter’ on at least three occasions each year.
FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO AUSTRALIAN TENNIS
Within the above policy the Foundation has given financial support to individual players, squads, official teams, player development programmes, Satellite circuits, Futures and Challenger events in excess of $1,900,000.
Such financial support has significantly upgraded the status of these circuits, events, and programmes.
