Tennis SA Service Awards
The Tennis SA Service Awards recognise persons who have demonstrated their contribution to the sport of tennis through outstanding and exemplary service to Tennis SA. People who have served on Committees of Tennis SA over a prolonged period or have contributed significantly to Association Committee(s) should be considered for a Service Award, as should people who have made a broader contribution to the sport.
There is no length of service inherent in the Service Awards and an award may be granted for special service in a limited time period or for more general service over a longer period. There is no limit on the number of Service Awards that the Council may grant in any one year. Nominations for the Tennis SA Service Awards are to be made by letter to the Tennis SA CEO.
