The Newcombe Medal is awarded to Australia’s most outstanding elite tennis player, while the Australian Tennis Awards honour the achievements of nominated members of the tennis community.
Nominees for the Newcombe Medal are selected by an esteemed panel of Australian champions and highly respected individuals in the tennis community.
For the past two years the honour has gone to Sam Stosur who has cemented herself as one of the world’s top 10 players.
The award is in honour of the achievements of Australian tennis legend John Newcombe. “I have always felt it my duty to give back to tennis, a sport which has given me so much,” John Newcombe said. “I am deeply honoured by having this medal named after me and feel quite humbled.”
Members of the public are invited to nominate people they believe have made a significant contribution to the sport.
