Sport Innovation/Active Network/Tennis Australia

Tennis Australia is the chief governing body of tennis within Australia, linking to other tennis member associations throughout the country's states and territories. They organize and manage multiple national and international tennis tournaments such as the Davis Cup, the Fed Cup, the Tennis Pro Circuit, and the Australian Open series which lead up to the Australian Open, one of the four most important Grand Slams of the year [2].

Ambassadors for one of the most popular sports in the globe, Tennis Australia also organizes numerous camps and events throughout the year. They nurture and facilitate participation within their grassroots, as well as in the amateur and professional level [2].

As one of the newest partners of Active Network in 2011, Tennis Australia now benefits from multiple online administrative solutions, eliminating a large amount of paperwork [23]. As Tournament Coordinator Francis Soyer has said, "the Active system links perfectly with our current tournament administration program" [23]. Having one of the most enthusiastic tennis fan base worldwide, Tennis Australia needed to effectively coordinate volunteers, events, trainings, camps, new registrations and more.
