Peers family awarded Victorian Spirit of Tennis

The Peers family - Elizabeth, Bill, John, and Sally - have been honoured with the Victorian Spirit of Tennis Award.

Presented at the Tennis Victoria Champions' Dinner on October 22nd, the award recognises a Significant and Valuable Contribution to the advancement or popularity of the sport in any field such as Journalism, Media, Tournament Management, General Management at National or State level, International Management, Supporting, Coaching or Playing.

The recipient must be born in Victoria or lived the majority of their life as a Victorian resident.

The Peers family received the award due to their significant contribution to tennis that spans decades.

The family as a collective has played at the highest level, coached for years and given so much back to game.

The Board of Tennis Victoria felt fitting to acknowledge the family for all the incredible work they have done and continue to do on a local, national and international scale.

Previous winners of the Spirit of Tennis Award have included Frank Sedgman, Margaret Court, Wayne Arthurs and Cedric Mason.

This was the first time the Award has been presented to a family.

John, who continues to star on the doubles court, was unable to attend on the night, due to tournament commitments in Austria.

The Club wishes to congratulate the Peers family on receiving this prestigious award!
