Celebrating 100 years of Tildesley Tennis
Despite the inclement weather, the 100th year of Tildesley was celebrated in high spirits. The tournament began with an opening ceremony that welcomed special guests, Don Cozens, son of Daphne Akhurst and Judy Hawley, the oldest surviving Tildesley winner (1947).
While the weather had the potential to dampen the moods of staff and students, I would like to thank everyone who attended for their positive attitudes and countless offers of help.
A true hero of the tournament was our lovely convener Suzi Litchfield (ROS). Suzi is an absolute delight and worked tirelessly over the three days, always with a big smile on her face. On behalf of the IGSSA team, I would like to thank Suzi for her guidance and commitment over the 3 days.
While the action on court was a joy to watch another highlight took place in the AHIGS marquee. AHIGS Vice President, Maryanne Davis spent the tournament recording the memories of old girls allowing us to record many of the stories that make Tildesley so special. As a result, the 100 year history of Tildesley will be completed with a true perspective of players and officials.
