Canterbury Bankstown Tennis Association (CBTA) toasted its 100th birthday on Saturday.

Over the past 100 years, CBTA has provided an encouraging and inspiring environment, where all players from grassroots to professional can foster a love for tennis and grow both on and off the court.

Through their devoted and willing committee and volunteers, CBTA has been able to deliver tennis for all and successfully run various tournaments and initiatives over the years, whilst also initiating the NSW State Closed Championships.

Ian Campbell, the former CBTA President said, “we have always had a willing pool of volunteers who would always roll up their sleeves and get the job done.”

The Association’s success has led them to be the second oldest Hardcourt Association in NSW and provided the following members to the board of Tennis NSW, George McKerihan, Max Wilton, Bruce Snell, John Starr and Ian Campbell.

On Saturday night, CBTA came together and celebrated their centenary and all the success they have achieved over the past 100 years.

Tennis NSW would like to congratulate CBTA for 100 years of fantastic tennis delivery and thank the Association for everything they have done for the NSW tennis community, we are very honoured to have you as a part of our tennis family.
