The Tennis ACT Walk of Fame seeks nominations

Share Canberra's trusted news:

TENNIS ACT has opened nominations for the Tennis ACT Walk of fame, to be established at the Canberra Tennis Centre.

The Walk of Fame will honour those whose exceptional contribution has brought recognition and esteem to them and to tennis in the ACT.

Tennis ACT Board member and Walk of Fame chairman, Colin Adrian said the Tennis ACT Board believes the rich history of tennis in the ACT needs to be celebrated and acknowledged.

“The Walk of Fame gives us the opportunity to honour players, coaches, and administrators who have given so much to the tennis community of Canberra,” Adrian said.

Nominees must have resided in the ACT or nearby NSW at or before their selection for a period of at least 5 years. Nominations may include coaches, volunteers, players, umpires, and others who have made outstanding contributions to tennis in the ACT.

Applications are open until September 30th and successful inductees will be announced at the Tennis ACT Gala Dinner in February.

A commemoration area will be established at the redeveloped Canberra Tennis Centre to honour inductees which will feature appropriate displays such as inscribed pavers, plaques, or other signage. The general public also have the opportunity to get involved, by donating a paver in the Walk of Fame.

Further information can be found on the Tennis ACT website at tennis.com.au.
