Of course! But it can be used for anything for the club and its players’ needs. It could contribute towards new equipment, court re-surfacing or even put towards a club house upgrade. These are just some ideas to get you thinking. 

Entries will need to answer the question ‘What would your club/venue do with $10,000?’

All applications will be reviewed by the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots judges.

The judges will assess the merits of each application in their discretion based on fulfilment of eligibility criteria set out in the Terms and Conditions. Any grants awarded will be at the discretion of the panel of appointed judges.

There is a limit of one entry per person.
Different people from the same team or club can enter. However, if successful, a club will be awarded a grant once. Nominators who apply for a grant must have the permission of the club to enter.

Submitting an image with your entry is mandatory this year. Images don't need to be high definition and can be taken on a smart phone. We suggest showing us images that will help bring your entry to life. For example, if you are hoping to use the prize money to make repairs or physical upgrades to the club show us photos of your club currently or if you're hoping to get some new equipment show us what you're working with now. 

Submitting a video is not mandatory but strongly encouraged. 

Your video does not have to be high quality – you can even film and submit from your smartphone.

To submit a video, you will need to upload it to YouTube or any other hosting website and paste the link in the application form. There is no time restriction on the video. It should be a ‘public’ or ‘unlisted’ video, not ‘private’, to ensure the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots judges can see your entry.

Only successful applicants will be notified via phone and email. The successful names will be published, in two rounds, on anz.com/communitygrants by 6th January 2020 for the first round of recipients, and by 1st May 2020 for the final round of recipients.
Applicants must be a minimum of 18 years.

The promotion commences at 5am AEDT on Monday 7th October 2019 and closes at 11.59pm AEDT on Tuesday 31st March 2020. There will be twenty successful recipients. The first round will be announced by 6th January 2020, and the final round of recipients will be announced by 1st May 2020. If you are not successful in the first round your entry will still be considered for the final round.  

Note that the end date for entries has been extended until March 31st 2020 so you have a little more time to get your submission in
