Tennis Victoria aims to make tennis a part of every Victorian’s life. Our purpose is to advance tennis as Victoria’s preferred sport. In achieving our purpose, Tennis Victoria will be known for: • Promoting the positive health, cultural, physical, mental and social benefits of tennis • Creating and implementing innovative programs and services • Developing players to attain their potential • Governance that is financially, ethically and socially responsible • Fostering progressive and team-oriented administration

It is with much pleasure that I present Tennis Victoria’s Annual Report and Financial Statements for 2008/09. The financial result was again a disappointing deficit of $155,695 which includes a loss on investments of $6,367 caused, as we are all aware, by the Global Financial Crisis. Hopefully the market has bottomed and the improvement we have seen over the recent months will continue, allowing us to re-coup some of our losses. The major reason for our loss this year is due to the reduction in the number of registered members with Tennis Victoria. This is 3,097 less than last year equating to approximately $70,000 in income. We believe that clubs are not registering all their members with Tennis Victoria, which is obviously not acceptable. Not only does it mean these members have no insurance, it also affects our ability to help develop players and increase participation. Participation is the lifeblood of clubs and if we don’t succeed here, clubs will struggle. Over the past year, the drought was again a major issue for us to deal with. We have been very successful in enabling clubs to continue to use all of their red porous courts so long as they have been treated with either magnesium or calcium chloride. The devastating bushfires had a significant effect on members and their families and caused damage to several clubs. With the generosity of a number of people, including the Victorian Country Tennis Association, the Victorian Government through Sport and Recreation Victoria and the Kooyong Foundation, we have been able to assist these clubs to re-build and to show their members that the tennis community is there to help.

Tennis continues to be the sport that attracts the highest level of interest and is well ahead of all other sports. Tennis participation ranks fifth in the community, with swimming number one. Tennis outranks such sports as soccer, football, cricket and netball. Clubs will be the direct beneficiaries through increased membership if this interest and participation can be further encouraged through the Australian Open, marketing and the success of our players at the top level. Thank you to all of our partners and sponsors in Tennis Australia, the Victorian Government through Sport and Recreation Victoria, VicHealth, Amer Sports Australia (Wilson Sporting Goods), Momentum Energy, Prelli Racquets and the AAMI Classic without whose support we could not deliver the programs we do. I would like to welcome the new staff who joined us during the year and thank those who have left for their support, expertise and dedication whilst they were with us. Thanks to all the staff at Tennis Victoria for the great support and knowledge that they have shown throughout a difficult year and in particular Ian Clark, our CEO, for steering us through. Thank you to the Board and especially John Bryan as Treasurer and Geoff Stone as Vice President for the support, guidance and wisdom they have given to Tennis Victoria and myself.

I am honoured to be involved in bringing the financial report to you again for reflection on another year past. The 2008/09 financial year was challenging for Tennis Victoria as we were not immune to the effects of the Global Financial Crisis, drought and bushfires during the year. Thankfully, we have prevailed. Cashed up entities who believed they were immune found that the interest rates on deposits declined, resulting in a loss of income. Investment diversification of reserves is an essential part of good management. Our financial statements record a Net Deficit for the financial year ending 30 June 2009 of $155,695 (2008 Deficit $41,829). Constant financial monitoring revealed the potential adverse result during the financial year which resulted in strategic steps being taken by the management team and Board to reduce the impact of reduced revenues. The deficit is itself disappointing to report, however our members actions on affiliate income (being in excess of 50% of total revenue) transmits straight to our result for the year. A new family registration category was approved by members during the year which is expected to assist in maintaining future registration levels. Our results also include the investment in the Casey Tennis Centre (Casey). The result is a surplus to Tennis Victoria of $5,366 (after depreciation of $6,880 on our Casey assets). Our exit date from Casey was pushed back several months beyond 30 June 2009, as requested by Casey City Council, to facilitate a smooth transition to a new operator.

Generating a ‘good times’ surplus is important as the reserves act as a buffer when unexpected changes occur. The buffer has allowed our organisation time to adjust accordingly. This has been particularly important in our strategic resolve to survive financially during the effects of various challenges arising through the effects of the previously mentioned Global Financial Crisis, the Australian drought, and the Victorian bushfires. A positive in our investment portfolio value downturn was in fixed interest investments maintaining comparatively good interest rates. Holding steady during the financial storm has seen some improvement since 30 June 2009 in the share component value of the portfolio. Support from sponsors, members, registered players, volunteers and contributions from allied organisations is essential. Tennis Australia, representing the state and territory tennis organisations of Australia, continued valuable support by contributing $531,568 for specific tennis programs. Our thanks go to the Victorian Government through Sport and Recreation Victoria, VicHealth, Amer Sports Australia (Wilson Sporting Goods), Momentum Energy, Prelli Racquets, and AAMI Classic for their continued support. Heath Mason joined Tennis Victoria in July 2008 in an urgent contract capacity and was subsequently appointed to the role of Finance Manager. The 2008/09 financial year is Heath’s second completion of the formal financial statements. Heath is extremely capable and a major support to me in my role as Treasurer and I thank him sincerely for his dedication to the task. My thanks go to my Board colleagues, particularly David Stobart and Geoff Stone, the office team headed by CEO Ian Clark and the various committees and Council members. You have all assisted me in fulfilling the role I am honoured to serve as Treasurer and your unending enthusiasm is a solid part of the success of Tennis Victoria. I love it with a passion.

John R Bryan FCA Treasurer

Based upon comparative populations, Victoria continues to set the benchmark in all junior birth years in the Australian Rankings. The environment has continued to provide tennis with a significant challenge over the past twelve months. Having established a solid relationship with the Victorian Government and the water authorities in the previous year, Tennis Victoria was well placed to assist clubs maintain full access to their red porous courts. As previously mentioned, this prevented a catastrophic closure of courts and an associated reduction in club participation and membership. Unfortunately, Victoria’s extreme heat precipitated another devastating event on Black Saturday, 7 February 2009. Whilst there wasn’t significant damage to tennis facilities, it became apparent that tennis was to play an important role in the rehabilitation of those living in and around the fire-affected communities. Once again, strong relationships with the state government, local clubs, councils, the Kooyong Foundation and many individual players saw an overwhelming response to these communities. The resulting initiatives produced immediate responses such as the distribution of equipment to replace what was lost in the fires, participation programs and long-term facility redevelopment. The infrastructure and environment department completed the development of our Facilities Planning Framework (formally known as the Facilities Master Plan). This planning process has received strong endorsement from state and local governments and is designed to provide all stakeholders, including our club network, with a comprehensive suite of data to enable informed decisions to be made regarding the future of tennis facilities within Victoria. Work has commenced to establish a library of facility development reference materials and to engage these groups in the western and northern growth corridors. The 2008/09 year was financially challenging for the organisation. While country player registration numbers have remained reasonably consistent, metropolitan registrations declined sharply.

This had a direct impact on our ability to provide the many services and programs designed to stimulate participation and club membership. In order to improve the management of tennis membership within both Tennis Victoria and the club network, we have decided to implement a new member management IT platform in partnership with Tennis Australia. Work began with a US based company to produce the comprehensive program which is primarily used by the triathlon community. This is a good outcome for tennis within Victoria, as this system is well overdue and will provide our clubs with a significant tangible benefit of affiliation. I encourage you to review the progress and the player and talent development programs contained within Goal 4. Based upon comparative populations, Victoria continues to set the benchmark in many junior birth years in the Australian Rankings. Our Tennis Operations team is producing some excellent young talent through the 12/U Talent Development Program and progressing them into the National Academy - Melbourne. The quality of these programs has been a major factor in 18 national titles being won by Victorians in 2008. Many of our athletes have also performed strongly on the world stage with representation in the Junior Federation Cup (Molly Polak and Viktorija Rajicic) and in the 14s World Junior Teams event (Stefani Stojic). The Sweeney and ERAS reports are two important sport industry surveys that are produced each year and provide a valuable insight into the health of a number of mainstream sports across a variety of categories. It is pleasing to report that tennis has improved its performance in each of the two most important categories. Tennis is now the sport of most interest, and is ranked within the top five for participation. These results are extremely encouraging given the fierce competition within the sports market and the Global Financial Crisis. I trust you will find the content of Tennis Victoria’s 2008/09 Annual Report informative and that it demonstrates the value of your continued support. I would once again like to thank the Board and staff for their dedication and expertise throughout the year. We also deeply appreciate the support of our numerous partners who have contributed so much to tennis in Victoria.

VicHealth Partnership – Participation in Community Sport and Recreation The second year of Tennis Victoria’s partnership with VicHealth’s Participation in Community Sport and Active Recreation (PICSAR) program has resulted in many key achievements. The strengthened relationship with the Regional Sports Assemblies continues to develop, with eight of the nine assemblies involved in the Regional Development Officer program. The development of new partnerships with Adult Multicultural Education Services (AMES), Spirit West Services and the Western English Language School (WELS) played an instrumental role in the continued development of the Multicultural Tennis Program.

tennis victoria annual report 2008/09

Continual Growth Through the development of new partnerships with organisations such as AMES, Spirit West Services and WELS, along with the continuation of existing partnerships such as the Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY), Sudanese Australian Integrated Learning (SAIL), the Dandenong Tennis Club, Our Lady’s Tennis Club (Sunshine) and the Kids Tennis Foundation, the Multicultural Tennis Program grew to new heights in 2008/09. Tennis Victoria has provided opportunities for new arrivals from Afghanistan, Burma, Ethiopia, India, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, China, Vietnam and Sudan to experience the sport of tennis. These opportunities consisted of group visits to the Australian Open, tennis coaching lessons, school tennis clinics, multicultural Club Open Days and pathways into local club coaching, programs and competitions. A further achievement was the production of the ‘Welcome to Tennis’ booklet, which was produced to minimise the language barrier and increase the awareness of tennis amongst new arrival communities. The booklet welcomes people to the sport of tennis in 14 different languages.

55,000 52,306

During 2008/09 Tennis Victoria again produced some key publications including the Annual Report, four issues of the VTN, the 2009 Tournament Calendar and the 2009 Pennant Handbook. These publications, along with the many program brochures, are vital in keeping our stakeholders and potential participants informed and aware of what tennis has to offer in Victoria. A review of the Tennis Victoria website was conducted, which determined that the information and navigation needed updating to become user friendly. A publicity schedule was also regularly maintained to ensure timely communication of Tennis Victoria’s programs and competitions. We were able to determine that more than 55% of the media releases distributed received coverage in print or broadcast media.

Strategies to increase the conversion rate of participants Following the term four Mums’ Tennis Program, Tennis Victoria conducted a promotion to encourage program participants to join their local club or Tennis Victoria directly. The incentive was a stylish tennis bag from Wilson and Tennis Victoria has identified 19 newly converted members. Tennis Victoria will continue to conduct this incentive style promotion to assist in the conversion of participants into membership.

Regular promotion of Tennis Victoria programs and opportunities to play tennis was undertaken via the non-member database prior to the commencement of each school term by both email and mail. Tennis Victoria is committed to building this non-member database to continue to promote and grow the sport of tennis in this state and to track people’s interaction with, and involvement in, the sport long-term.

Mums’ Staying in Tennis Program

The Tennis Sports Development Program is also being developed to give secondary students an introduction into a sports-related career. This is a joint initiative between Tennis Victoria, Sports Education and Development Australia (SEDA) and Victoria University, specifically designed to give young people the qualifications and experience to pursue a career within the sport and recreation industry. The program will also help to provide clubs with assistance through administration and coaching support.

2008/09 saw Tennis Victoria increase its presence at large public events promoting our great sport to a key target market, young families. Interactive sites were set up at Active Kids Day (September, Windy Hill), Give it a Go (October, Alexandra Gardens) and Moomba (March, Alexandra Gardens) to give children, parents and teenagers an opportunity to play tennis and win some great prizes.

Tennis Victoria, in conjunction with Tennis Australia, has partnered with the Active After-school Communities (AASC) program to offer tennis to children who traditionally have not accessed the sport through the Aviva Tennis Hot Shots Program. This allows tennis to be proactive and provide a structure that is more conducive to transitioning students from school through to their local tennis clubs.

To maximise the contribution to the sport of tennis by engaging the entire tennis community, current and potential During the 2008/09 affiliation year, the membership team at Tennis Victoria conducted research to determine how best to introduce a family registration category. The club survey results indicated that there were a wide variety of definitions amongst clubs as to what constitutes a `family’. As a result, Tennis Victoria has introduced the `family’ registration category in 2009/10 and will allow clubs to define what a `family’ is. The only conditions are that all members must have the same primary club, one address needs to be nominated for all players in a family and only one membership card will be issued (listing all family members). This new financial model suits our current membership demographic without compromising the organisation’s ability to deliver its products and services.

During 2008/09, Tennis Victoria also conducted player focused research and worked with partners to offer members more relevant and worthwhile membership benefits. Australian Open Priority Ticketing was offered for the first time in 2008. This benefit has since been rated as an ‘excellent’ benefit and is highly valued by members. Tennis Victoria is pleased to report that we will be offering this benefit in conjunction with Tennis Australia again in 2009/10. The survey also revealed that our members wanted access to discounted tennis racquets and that Wilson is, by far, their preferred brand of racquet. As a result, Tennis Victoria has established an offer for members to access discounted Wilson racquets and equipment during promotional periods at participating retailers across the state. Other new benefits for 2009/10 include a buy-1-get-1 free offer from Tennis World, discounted Herald Sun home delivery, physiotherapy treatments and Intrepid Travel tours.

2008/09 saw the re-alignment of the marketing team into Tennis Victoria’s Access department to ensure a collaborative approach to membership acquisition and conversion of participants from our programs into club membership and coaching. One of the most important initiatives for the 2008/09 year was the introduction of ‘Hot off the Court’, Tennis Victoria’s exclusive e-newsletter for members. This electronic communication tool has been pivotal in keeping players up-to-date about their opportunities to play tennis as well as educating them about the many benefits they have access to. At the end of the 2008/09 year, Hot off the Court was being delivered to 11,679 unique email addresses and we estimate, some 23,000 members. A survey was completed to establish whether the content being delivered was relevant to our readers and as a result, some enhancements will be implemented in 2009/10. Tennis Victoria is working on strategies to bring this valued and vital communication tool to many more members throughout the next financial year. The relationship between Tennis Victoria and the Victorian Country Tennis Association (VCTA) is now in its second year and continues to provide integrated, valuable resources and servicing to regional Victoria.

IT systems In the latter part of the affiliation year the membership team, along with our counterparts in the other states, partnered with Tennis Australia in the development of a new IT system known as ‘My Tennis’. This system will replace MAD and Baseline and will ease the administration burden sometimes associated with becoming a member of a club. New services include on-line payments, email, SMS communication and players having the ability to log-in and update their own profile. In 2009/10 training sessions will be run to upskill volunteers in the system’s use, a process enhanced by the introduction of a helpdesk for all user enquires. Not only will this provide a dedicated resource but it will enable us to track clubs’ needs and make recommendations on improvements to functionality. The system will also be integrated with the new Tournament Planner software and competition modules as they are made available.

To promote a welcoming, sustainable and quality tennis environment The Environment Tennis Victoria has continued its support of tennis clubs throughout the difficult water restriction periods. The completion of the Smart Water Fund initiative, ‘Drought–proofing tennis in Victoria’ has tested and implemented water saving technologies for red porous tennis courts. Tennis Victoria is again working with water retailers after a successful program of court treatment subsidies. Clubs implementing Water Conservation Plans have also accessed available signage to educate members and promote each club’s plan to conserve water over the summer months.

Facility Development The completion of Tennis Victoria’s Facilities Planning Framework provides a strategic focus for facility development. Following a presentation to the The Hon James Merlino, MP, Minister for Sport and Recreation, Tennis Victoria was successful in obtaining $65,000 from Sport and Recreation Victoria to develop the Western and Northern Metropolitan Facility Provision Analysis project. This project will identify opportunities to minimise gaps in facility provision in the western and northern regions of metropolitan Melbourne, whilst considering the existing infrastructure and its utilisation. Included in this funding is the development of the Tennis Facilities Planning Guide. The guide will be used as a resource to educate and inform tennis clubs and Local Government Associations (LGAs) when developing and/or redeveloping tennis facilities.

Club and Organisation Development

Tennis Victoria has built strong partnerships with a number of LGAs in 2008/09. The evidence of these partnerships can be seen through various tennis club forums and ‘tennis specific’ strategic planning documents produced by the LGAs. Further partnerships will be developed through the Western and Northern Metropolitan Facility Provision Analysis project. This will be the vehicle for strategically collaborating with key LGAs in the western and northern regions of metropolitan Melbourne.

Engage state and local governments and corporate sector The horror and tragedy of the Black Saturday Bushfires in February 2009 sparked a committed and coordinated response from tennis to assist in rebuilding affected tennis communities. When tennis put out a national call to action, the response was overwhelming. Mums, dads, boys, girls, players, non-players, staff, families, coaches, administrators, clubs, associations, federations, sponsors, manufacturers and agents all stepped up offering cash, goods, services and time towards bushfire relief. To date, the Neale Fraser Foundation – Tennis Bushfire Relief Appeal has raised $29,000 with $8,000 used to purchase emergency equipment packs to ensure tennis activity could continue. Kinglake Ranges Tennis Club (KRTC) were granted $3,000 to replace committed (but now lost) funds towards a ‘Small Towns Development Fund’ grant approved prior to the fires. Additional respite was provided by running community days such as the ‘Back to Tennis Day’ in Whittlesea co-ordinated by the Kooyong Foundation, in conjunction with the Diamond Valley Tennis Association and Tennis Victoria. Fun days were also run at the Wandong and Flowerdale Tennis Clubs, and a subsidised ‘in schools’ mums and Sunday social program were held at the Flowerdale Tennis Club. More recently, $1,650 was spent to up-skill Michael Stott, a Kinglake resident and tennis club member, to become a qualified tennis coach for KRTC. Tennis will continue to work with these communities, providing any support possible to get them back playing our wonderful ‘community’ sport.

The 2008 Club Ambassador Success Stories booklet was produced to demonstrate the achievements of volunteers and Club Ambassadors. Achievements such as increasing membership, improving facilities and creating a welcoming environment for people from different backgrounds were all recognised.

In partnership with our stakeholders to be the leader within Australia developing world class junior players Player development is one of the most dynamic and challenging areas of our sport. The Tennis Operations department is responsible for this goal and for supporting Victorian programs that contribute to the development of world class players.

Junior Player Pathway One of the most important programs to launch this year was the Advantage Program. Following significant research amongst tennis stakeholders, Tennis Victoria identified the need to recognise the large number of juniors who were highly ranked players, but not yet eligible for the National Academy - Melbourne. The result was the Advantage Program, which is designed to recognise and reward highly ranked junior Victorian players and provide them with the motivation and support to ensure they continue to train, compete and be active in our sport for many years to come. The Talent Search program reached over 600 children aged 6 to 11, many of whom went on to further opportunities through Talent Development Camps and Junior Development Series tournaments (designed to introduce our juniors to competitive tennis). The Talent Development Squad remains the pinnacle program for juniors aged 12/U and still leads the country in developing junior players for the challenges ahead. The National Academy - Melbourne underwent a significant restructure based upon two tiers of training programs designed to provide the appropriate training and support for each athlete’s current ability and tennis development. The academy environment continued to deliver outstanding results with both the National and State criteria programs servicing over 50 athletes aged 13 and older.

Tournaments and Competitions Tennis Victoria provided over 250 different opportunities for competitive play, including a broad range of competitions and tournaments for all ages and levels of tennis participants. The Open Competitions and Tournaments department re-focused efforts with local clubs and centres to ensure there was a balanced offering of Australian Ranking tournaments (such as Australian Money Tournaments) and local inter-club and association competitions. At the other end of the spectrum, our Junior Development Series introduced increasing numbers of juniors to the game. Our Junior Regional Cup Series expanded to cover all junior age groups and provided metropolitan associations and country regions the opportunity to play junior team competitions. Other regional events such as the Victorian Country Tennis Association (VCTA) Country Week (Wodonga), the VCTA Junior Squad Masters (Bendigo) and the Inter-Regionals Country Championships (Horsham) were a great success. Our flagship inter-club competition, Pennant, continues to enjoy a strong following despite the proliferation of alternative events. Over 3,000 players from more than 140 clubs competed in the competition. Junior Pennant participant numbers were also strong with 800 juniors from 145 teams involved in the metropolitan interassociation competition.

Identify, Up-skill and promote Coaches With over 750 qualified coaches, Victoria continues to have the largest number of coaches of any state. Coaches play a crucial role in delivering tennis and are an important asset. To meet the demands of players, clubs and centres for quality coaching services, a range of coaching courses were provided to train new coaches as well as up-skill existing ones. Over the 12 month period the following courses were delivered: • Eight Orientation to Coaching courses • Four Junior Development courses • One Club Professional course

To motivate excellence in staff performance and to ensure that a high standard of corporate governance is delivered Monitor Tennis Victoria’s governance practices via its Audit and Governance sub committee Following the establishment of Tennis Victoria’s risk management framework in the previous reporting year, we identified 37 risks to the organisation. These risks were rated from low to extreme based on an assessment of the likelihood and consequences (or impact) they would have should they occur. Of these 37 issues, 10 were rated as high and seven as having an extreme impact on our ability to either service our members or to the future of tennis as a sport. This year, each of these risks were put through a thorough management process to mitigate their effect and then reassessed to gain a clear picture as to the actual exposure to the organisation. As a result of this process, only three remain as having a high rating and the total number of risks on our register has been reduced from 37 to 16. Those risks remaining with a high rating relate to the following: • The impact of the environment on our facilities, predominantly red porous and grass courts, and • Our ability to maintain a sustained and predictable revenue stream from our affiliation/player registration base.

Tennis Australia has set aside funds for each Member Association to undertake a review of their respective constitutions. This funding will become available within the 2009/10 reporting period. Tennis Victoria will conduct this process and review any recommendations made with the view to updating its current document. Tennis Victoria’s Finance Manager, Heath Mason, has reviewed the organisation’s financial tracking and reporting processes. This extensive review has led to an overhaul of this aspect of our financial management. The new system created by Heath gives us the ability to monitor income and expenditure on a daily basis, and to track our progress against the organisation’s budget with greater accuracy. As a result, Tennis Victoria’s senior managers are now in a stronger position to make early decisions relating to budget variations and the delivery of programs.

Provide opportunities for personal and organisational development for staff. Once again, Tennis Victoria’s performance management system has identified the talent within our team and where appropriate, managers have recommended short courses to develop staff skills. This has occurred in each of our three business units. Whilst we don’t enjoy seeing valued members of our team leave us, we were particularly pleased that Jonathon Coyne and Ben Gross, two of our Access Officers, moved on to more senior roles in local government. They both attributed these opportunities to our professional development policy.

The last issue is particularly evident within our metropolitan sector and is very concerning. Player registration fees are Tennis Victoria’s primary revenue stream and are payable by the players who enjoy the benefits of our strong club and commercial network. These fees are re-invested into tennis and remain the cheapest of all the major state sporting associations.

Notes to the Financial Statements for the year ended 30 June 2009 Note 1 Statement of Significant Accounting Policies

flows have been discounted to their present values in determining recoverable amounts.

This financial report covers Victorian Tennis Association Inc. as an individual entity. Victorian Tennis Association Inc. is an association incorporated in Victoria under the Associations Incorporations Act 1981.

Depreciation The depreciable amount of all fixed assets including buildings and capitalised lease assets, is depreciated on a straight-line basis over the asset’s useful life commencing from the time the asset is held ready for use.

Basis of Preparation The financial report is a general purpose financial report that has been prepared in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards (including Australian Accounting Interpretations) of the Australian Accounting Standards Board and the Associations Incorporations Act 1981. Australian Accounting Standards set out accounting policies that the AASB has concluded would result in a financial report containing relevant and reliable information about transactions, events and conditions to which they apply. Compliance with Australian Accounting Standards ensures that the financial statements and notes also comply with International Financial Reporting Standards. Material accounting policies adopted in the preparation of this financial report are presented below and have been consistently applied unless otherwise stated. The financial report has been prepared on an accruals basis and is based on historical costs, modified, where applicable, by the measurement at fair value of selected non-current assets, financial assets and financial liabilities.

Accounting Policies a. Income Tax The association is exempt from income tax. b. Inventories Inventories are measured at the lower of cost and net realisable value. c. Equipment Each class of equipment is carried at cost or fair value as indicated less, where applicable, any accumulated depreciation and impairment losses. The carrying amount of plant and equipment is reviewed annually by directors to ensure it is not in excess of the recoverable amount from these assets. The recoverable amount is assessed on the basis of the expected net cash flows that will be received from the assets’ employment and subsequent disposal. The expected net cash

20

tennis victoria annual report 2008/09

The depreciation rates used for each class of depreciable assets are: Class of Fixed Asset Office equipment Furniture and fittings Technical and tournament equipment

Depreciation Rate 15-33% 7-20% 3-33%

The assets’ residual values and useful lives are reviewed and adjusted, if appropriate, at each balance date. An asset’s carrying amount is written down immediately to its recoverable amount if the asset’s carrying amount is greater than its estimated recoverable amount. Gains and losses on disposals are determined by comparing proceeds with the carrying amount. These gains and losses are included in the income statement. d. Leases Lease payments for operating leases, where substantially all the risks and benefits remain with the lessor, are charged as expenses on a straight-line basis over the lease term. e. Financial Instruments Recognition Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised when the entity becomes a party to the contractual provisions to the instrument. For financial assets, this is equivalent to the date that the Association commits itself to either purchase or sell the asset (i.e. trade date accounting is adopted). Subsequent to initial recognition these instruments are measured as set out below. Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss Financial assets are classified at ‘fair value through profit or loss’ when they are held for trading for the purpose of short-term profit taking. Such assets are subsequently measured at fair value with changes in carrying value being included in profit or loss. The Association has not held any financial assets at fair value through profit or loss in the current or comparative financial year.

Available-for-sale financial assets Available-for-sale financial assets are non-derivative financial assets that are either designated as such or that are not classified in any of the other categories. They comprise investments in the equity of other entities where there is neither a fixed maturity nor fixed or determinable payments. Unrealised gains and losses arising from changes in fair value are taken directly to equity. Impairment At each reporting date, the Association assesses whether there is objective evidence that a financial instrument has been impaired. Impairment losses are recognised in the income statement. f. Impairment of Assets At each reporting date, the Association reviews the carrying values of its tangible and intangible assets to determine whether there is any indication that those assets have been impaired. If such an indication exists, the recoverable amount of the asset, being the higher of the asset’s fair value less costs to sell and value-in-use, is compared to the asset’s carrying value. Any excess of the asset’s carrying value over its recoverable amount is expensed to the income statement. Where it is not possible to estimate the recoverable amount of an individual asset, the Association estimates the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs. g. Employee Benefits Provision is made for the Association’s liability for employee benefits arising from services rendered by employees to balance date. Employee benefits that are expected to be settled have been measured at the amounts expected to be paid when the liability is settled, plus related on-costs. h. Cash and Cash Equivalents Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand, deposits held at-call with banks, other short-term highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less. i. Revenue Revenue is recognised when the right to receive it is established. Interest revenue is recognised on a proportional basis taking into account the interest rates applicable to the financial assets. All revenue is stated net of the amount of goods and services tax. j. Goods and Services Tax (GST) Revenues, expenses and assets are recognised net of the amount of GST, except where the amount of GST incurred is not recoverable from the Australian Tax Office. In these circumstances the GST is recognised as part of the cost of acquisition of the asset or

© Photographer: Andrew Gyopar

as part of an item of the expense. Receivables and payables in the balance sheet are shown inclusive of GST. Cash flows are presented in the cash flow statement on a gross basis, except for the GST component of investing and financing activities, which are disclosed as operating cash flows. k. Comparative Figures When required by Accounting Standards, comparative figures have been adjusted to conform to changes in presentation for the current financial year. l. Key Estimates – Impairment The Association assesses impairment at each reporting date by evaluation of conditions and events specific to the group that may be indicative of impairment triggers. Recoverable amounts of relevant assets are reassessed using value-in-use calculations which incorporate various key assumptions. m. Key Judgements – Provision for Impairment of Receivables Included in trade and other receivables at reporting date are debts the Board has deemed unlikely to be paid. Therefore, a provision for impairment has been made at 30 June 2009 of $11,721 (2008: Nil). n. New Accounting Standards for Application in Future Periods The AASB has issued new, revised and amended Standards and Interpretations that have mandatory application dates for future reporting periods and which the Association has decided not to early adopt. A discussion of those future requirements and their impact on the Association is as follows: AASB 101: Presentation of Financial Statements, AASB 2007–8: Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards arising from AASB 101, and AASB 2007–10: Further Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards arising from AASB 101. All applicable to annual reporting periods commencing from 1 January 2009. The revised AASB 101 and amendments supersede the previous AASB 101 and redefine the composition of financial statements including the inclusion of a statement of comprehensive income. There will be no measurement or recognition impact on the Association. If an entity has made a prior period adjustment or reclassification, a third balance sheet as at the beginning of the comparative period will be required. The Association does not anticipate early adoption of any of the above reporting requirements and does not expect them to have any material effect on the Association’s financial statements.

Capital surplus reserve The capital surplus reserve was created following divestment of share of tennis centre.

Financial assets reserve The financial assets reserve records revaluation of available-for-sale financial assets to market value.

Fair values are materially in line with carrying values. The Board considers that the only material market risk arises in relation to holdings of available-for-sale investments. Should share market prices have increased / decreased by 1%, the Association’s equity would have increased / decreased by approximately $6,879 (2008: $7,965).
