It is with much admiration and upmost respect that we introduce Tennis West February #ACEgirl, the living legend that is, Mrs Margaret Robinson. Margaret’s tennis career spans an impressive 80 odd years, and at the respectful age of 87, you’ll still find Margaret competing in the Wednesday Women’s Tennis League!
From backyard lessons on the family tennis court, Margaret went on to carve a lifelong love of the sport that has clearly stood the test of time. From a young professional player who travelled to Europe to compete on the world stage, Margaret returned to Australia where she began a successful coaching career alongside husband Bruce. Margaret’s dominance in the sport however is mostly recognised on the Australian Tennis Seniors scene where she boasts 11 Australian Tennis Seniors Singles titles, 11 Australian Seniors Doubles titles and 4 Australian Seniors Mixed Doubles titles. Not to mention a host of other impressive victories and triumphs, Margaret’s time-honoured competitive ability is nothing short of amazing.
In 2013, at age 81, Margaret proudly held the World # 1 Seniors Singles ranking as well as the World # 1 Seniors Doubles player and then in 2014, was named the World # 1 Seniors Mixed Doubles player. To cap it all off and ensure Margaret’s name remains etched in the history books, she was named as an inaugural inductee into the Australian Tennis Seniors Hall of Fame.
Well done Margaret, you’re a standout champion and a most notable #ACEgirl. Welcome to the club!
