Court influencing Next Generation
MARGARET Court has become an honorary member of Next Generation Kings Park and the Royal King’s Park Tennis Club.
The club invited the 48-time Grand Slam winner to accept the honour because of her successful tennis career in the 1960s and ’70s, when she practised there.
Centre court at the club is named after Court.
Club president Gerry Hofmann presented the honorary membership on May 24.
“I wanted to create something that would make an outfit, not just complement it,” she said.
“My aim was to design a pair of earrings that would steal the show on the red carpet.”
