New operator for Batemans Bay tennis centre

Published: 29 April 2024

The Batemans Bay tennis centre at Hanging Rock is under new management, with Eurobodalla Council appointing Next Generation Tennis to operate the facility. The new operator is planning a range of programs, tournaments and events, as well as regular coaching, competitions and social tennis.

The previous arrangement involved three separate licences at the facility. These expired in 2022, with extensions granted until November 2023. Coordinator of recreation development Tina Smith said Council sought expressions of interest to appoint a new licence operator.

“Both Council and Tennis NSW are confident appointment of Next Generation Tenis will see a sound economic return for the community, improved maintenance and, most importantly, higher participation at the facility,” Ms Smith said.

“We’ve worked with the new operator and interested parties, including the Batemans Bay Tennis Club, to ensure access is fair and equitable. Now the Batemans Bay facility will be operated in a way that that reflects its status as a facility of regional significance to Tennis NSW.

“Next Generation Tennis have 18 years of experience operating tennis in the shire and we are looking forward to seeing the facility managed to the benefit of all.”
