Ken McGregor Funding
The Ken McGregor Fund (KMF) was established by Tennis SA to:
- Support the development of South Australia’s emerging tennis players.
- Provide the necessary resources to support pathways to continue our proud tennis tradition.
- Support and provide tennis opportunities for people with a disability.
The KMF distributes funds to assist junior and immediate post junior player development at an international standard and to achieve improved playing outcomes for players with a disability.
Ken McGregor made an outstanding contribution to tennis. In recognition of this contribution, Tennis SA has established the KMF to assist in the promotion of the next generation of international players and players with a disability.
McGregor was part of the endless array of gifted Australian players gathered together by the renowned Australian Davis Cup Captain, Harry Hopman. McGregor won nine major championships, seven of those coming in doubles. They were all won between 1950 and 1952 as an amateur before becoming a professional tennis player in 1953.
The KMF is no longer accepting applications for funding from individual players as the TSA Board has agreed that the priority is to support a range of Tennis SA and Tennis Australia initiatives to which funding has been recently been reduced due to the impact of COVID-19.
