Tennis Gold Coast

Tennis Gold Coast is one of the longest running sporting associations on the Gold Coast, with 2014 marking its 100th general meeting. 

This Gold Coast landmark has a rich history and has seen many tennis legends step onto its courts. Before free to air sports and ESPN, fans of the sport would get their tennis fix at Queens Park, watching exhibition matches with some of the top Australian and International players including the Australian Davis Cup team in the late 1950s. Tennis superstars included the likes of Lew Hoad, Ken Rosewall, Neale Fraser and Ashley Cooper.

“The generous G:link sponsorship has been invested across an array of areas, including team fixtures which is most important to our community. The funds have been instrumental in helping us organise trophies for participants and head champions as well as smaller prizes such as backpacks and equipment. It has also gone towards court upkeep to make sure it’s the best facility it can be for our players.”
John Birrell
Manager and Head Coach – Tennis Gold Coast

Gold Coast Youth Service

Gold Coast Youth Services (GCYS) first opened its doors in 1980 as a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing disadvantaged young individuals across Southeast Queensland with housing, relief, basic needs, and support. 

Having been a fixture in the Gold Coast community for some time, the welfare of our people, in particular, our kids, is at the forefront for the G:link team. We are community-minded first and foremost and proudly partnered with GCYS as a corporate sponsor to ensure the great people of GCYS can continue their projects and the incredible work they do within our community.

"A 17-year-old individual known to Street CRED for 18 months was using the drug ice and sleeping rough. Funding from G:link was used to pay for his passport and learners permit. After obtaining his medicare card and opening a bank account, support was provided to help him obtain a tax file number. The funds from G:link assisted him in purchasing his white card to work in construction, as well as tools and clothing. The young person engaged in drug and alcohol counselling with Street CRED partner 'Lives Lived Well'. He also undertook muay thai lessons for social recreation. He was previously a regular fare evader on the G:link system and now has been supported to apply for jobs and has been successful in gaining employment and now no longer is receiving fines for fare evasion. He is now paying rent for his room, is on a lease agreement and purchased his very first pair of Nike that he wears with pride.”
