Tennis Victoria and our affiliated clubs are fortunate to have the support of countless volunteers who make our tennis clubs the success that they are.  As a symbol of thanks, Tennis Victoria would like to officially thank our Volunteers for their contribution to tennis in Victoria.

An award to recognise persons who have demonstrated their contribution to the sport of tennis through devoted and significant service to any one or more of Tennis Victoria’s affiliated tennis clubs and/or associations and/or member organisations. Service to other tennis related bodies may also be recognised. These awards are determined at the discretion of the Tennis Victoria Board. A Highly Commended Service Award recipient would have demonstrated exemplary and outstanding service to a club, centre or association for a significant period of continuous or broken service. A Tennis Service Award is to recognise considerable tenure of continuous or broken service.

To nominate someone in your tennis community for a Tennis Service Award, the President or Secretary of the Tennis Club, Centre or Association must complete the Tennis Service Award nomination form. Once this form is completed, please send it to [email protected] for it to be considered by the Board of Tennis Victoria. Your Participation Leader can assist with the Tennis Service Award nomination process.
