31 October 2022 | Tennis NSW

Last night Tennis NSW hosted the 2022 Tennis NSW Award ceremony, where many amazing members and stakeholders of the NSW tennis community were recognised. The Awards were hosted by former professional tennis player and Grand Slam winner Casey Dellacqua at Waterview, Bicentennial Park. Casey hosted a Q&A with pro player Max Purcell, who is gearing up to compete at the NSW Open in Sydney Olympic Park this week. If you would like to enjoy some world-class tennis, entry to the event is free and order of play can be found on our website each day. Finals will be played this Sunday 6 November.

Tennis NSW would like to congratulate all 2022 Tennis NSW Awards Recipients! The tennis community thanks you for your efforts and continued dedication to tennis over the past 12 months, and congratulations once again.
