The Australian Davis Cup Tennis Foundation was formed in September, 1971 with the objective 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, who show Davis Cup potential. This is by direct player, or official team assistance or, as currently, by financial support for selected Player Development Programs of Tennis Australia.
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 $1,800,000. This financial support has significantly upgraded the status of these circuits, events, and programmes.
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 two ground passes per member 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.
The Foundation invites new members to help increase our support to the development of young Australian players. Enquiries may be directed to ADCTF Secretariat, P.O. Box 342, Ivanhoe, Vic 3079, or by telephone (03)9499 6228. Messages may be left on the answering machine.
