Most Outstanding Tennis Club or Venue: Collaroy Tennis Club (NSW)

Celebrating its centenary in 2022, this club on Sydney’s Northern Beaches is going from strength-to-strength. Providing free lessons for female members, to improve both their tennis and self-confidence, is example of why community participation levels are strong.

Coaching Excellence – Development: Luke Bourgeois (NSW)

Bourgeois is the Director of Performance at the Voyager Tennis Academy at Sydney Olympic Park. He coaches many of New South Wales’ leading junior players and his philosophy is to first develop the person, then the player. This is his second Australian Tennis Award in this category, having previously also won in 2017.


Congratulations to all NSW finalists and to Collaroy Tennis Club and Luke Bourgeois!
