Supporting sport and recreation jobs in Tasmania

The Tasmanian Government is continuing to support the State’s sport and recreation organisations through the challenges faced as a result of COVID-19.

As the Minister for Sport and Recreation, I am delighted to announce another successful applicant of our $2 million support package.

Tennis Tasmania will received $150,000 as part of tranche 1 of the funding model to support 17 jobs.

Tennis Tasmania General Manager Darren Sturgess welcoming the decision.

“We’re grateful for the support the Minister and the Tasmanian Government has shown to Tennis Tasmania and a number of other sporting organisations in the state,” Mr Sturgess said.

“This funding will allow us to get back from our current reduced work capacity and provide further service to our clubs and stakeholders as tennis in Tasmania resumes in a COVID-safe manner.”

I look forward to announcing more successful recipients over the coming weeks as this important sector looks towards more positive times ahead.
