The Willis Recreation and Sports Centre, East Chatswood and Cleland Park Tennis Courts, Artarmon are Willoughby City Council’s community assets. Through a competitive tendering process Council has appointed Sydney Sports Management Group (SSMG) and Voyager Tennis (VT) to operate the facilities as part of a license arrangement.

 

SSMG and Voyager are tried and tested organisations that operate across multiple Local Government Authorities throughout Sydney. The quality-of-service delivery is evidenced by SSMG winning the 2018 NSW Tennis Club of the Year – Chatswood Tennis Club and VT 2019 Tennis NSW Most Outstanding Club Finalist – Voyager North Manly. 

 

Ryan Henry, Managing Director Voyager Tennis – ‘’We are looking forward to providing industry leading tennis programming for the community across both venues and ensure the continuation of services. We will be working closely with all existing stakeholders and community groups to ensure tennis continues to thrive and grow in this lower North Shore area.

 

Richard Price, SSMG’s Chief Executive “SSMG & Voyager are delighted to be awarded the contract and looks forward to partnering with the City of Willoughby, Tennis NSW and develop relationships with the local Schools. We will work collaboratively with Council in the delivery of the 2020 Tennis Court Strategy and the Willoughby Open Space and Recreation Plan. This will be achieved by investing capital in these important community assets to ensure they meet the community’s expectations for many years to come. 

 

Scott Riley Managing Director SSMG and former touring professional stated “we will be jointly investing a significant amount of capital in the facilities to repurpose these valuable community assets, including an upgrade to the Willis clubhouse, resurfacing of courts and upgrade to LED lighting. We will also provide the Northern Suburbs Tennis Association continued access to ensure the continuity of their long-established competitions. In addition, the NSBC Group will provide subsidised transport for school sport and camps throughout Willoughby’’

 

 

Willoughby Council is committed to providing high quality recreation infrastructure and services that will meet future demands of a growing community.  Tennis and multi sports courts are an important way that the community can develop an active, healthy and socially engaged lifestyle.  SSMG and Voyager aim to support the development of The Willis and Cleland tennis facilities, activating both sites to become vibrant places delivering high quality, cost effective tennis and multi sports services that meet community needs at an affordable price.
