A former tennis coach has been charged with child sex assault offences allegedly committed in NSW's Port Macquarie region about four decades ago.

A man contacted police in 2014 claiming he had been sexually assaulted as a seven-year-old boy in 1976, sparking a investigation and the arrest of a 69-year-old man near his Newcastle home on Tuesday.

The 69-year-old is set to face Port Macquarie Local Court on September 7 charged with two counts of buggery.
