Tennis Central Strategy
Our Strategic Plan has been developed following extensive stakeholder consultation via Sport NZ ODT review, the Regional Performance Programme review, and consultation with associations and clubs specific to a draft plan circulated in June 2019. A key feature of the new plan is Tennis Central’s commitment to supporting and enhancing the capability of its associations and clubs.
Still to be developed in relation to this plan is an Annual Plan that specifies key outcomes to be of priority each year through to 2021.
The Strategic Plan is to run through to 30 April 2021 so that when it is next reviewed the opportunity will exist to consider alignment to a future Tennis New Zealand Strategic Plan expected to be released in 2020.

Wellington Tennis Incorporated
Wellington Tennis Incorporated (WTI) was formed in 1908 for the purpose of acting as a provincial body for the administration and development of tennis in the Wellington province. As part of the reorganisation of the administration of tennis in New Zealand in 2007, Tennis Central Region Incorporated (TCRI) was formed to administer and develop tennis in the Central Region, including the Wellington province. As a result, many of the functions previously performed by WTI were passed to TCRI. WTI remains in operation for one specific task and that is as the owner of the Renouf Tennis Centre, located on Brooklyn Road in Wellington. WTI also holds a reserve lease from Wellington City Council on the land at Central Park. WTI's members are the 16 Wellington tennis clubs.
