Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.”

De­signer Su­san Blen­ner­has­sett with the award.
