About this event

PRIDE CUP 101 WORKSHOP

Tennis Australia together with Pride Cup will present a workshop “Pride Cup 101” for clubs on how to host successful events celebrating LGBTQ+ inclusion in tennis. The Pride Cup program has been delivered to over 275 clubs across Australia through 11 sports.

The workshops will be delivered on Tuesday 9th November at the following times:

• 10:30am – 12:00pm (morning session)

• 7:00pm – 8:30pm (evening session)

Participants can choose either session to attend.

Why Pride Cup 101?

Research tells us that:

• 80% of LGBTI+ Australians still don’t feel secure in being open about their sexuality within a sporting club context

• 75% of LGBTI+ Australians don’t even feel safe enough to attend a sporting game due to the fear of harm or ridicule.

This lack of involvement in sport and physical activity has a huge impact on the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTQ+ Australians, who aren’t afforded the same benefits of sport that their heterosexual peers are, causing even more harm to LGBTQ+ communities who are already at the highest societal risk of depression, anxiety and suicidal ideations.

What will I learn?

This workshop provides an opportunity for tennis clubs to create positive and meaningful changes to support the LGBTQ+ community.

Pride Cup 101 will provide workshop participants with insights from people who have staged their own Pride Cup events. They will offer valuable ideas, lessons and advice to inspire anyone to promote acceptance and inclusion in their community.

The workshops will include a panel discussion about the “Do's and Do Not's” of hosting your own Pride Cup or Pride Activations, as well as a Q&A segment.

This event is especially beneficial for those who are wanting to host a Pride Cup, Pride Round or Pride activation in 2021 and beyond!
