“Amazon Tennis will benefit greatly from Tennis Sydney’s established administration processes and contacts within the Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA) worldwide and through their Membership to Tennis NSW”, said Tracey Macmillan from the Amazons. “It also makes sense to have the only two LGBTI tennis groups in Sydney in partnership together. We trust this partnership will see the growth in both groups and provide greater opportunities for players in our local competitions and tournaments and also for visiting players from inter-state and overseas.”
Since it’s commencement in 1995, Amazon Tennis has been a major organisation in the lesbian sporting community. With weekly competition and social tennis being held all year round, Amazon Tennis has also been a great outlet for social activity amongst the Sydney lesbian community. It continues to foster tennis talent as well as facilitating social events.
A formal signing of the Memorandum of Understanding and celebration of the partnership will take place in June.
We look forward to welcoming Amazon players to our tournaments and Sunday Social soon.
