At the inaugural induction, as a significant part of the TCAV 50 year anniversary celebrations conducted at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club in 2006, TCAV announced 12 revered and respected coaches, selected by a sub-committee and with formal approval from the Board of Management, who were subsequently inducted under the criteria stated, and their names inscribed onto the TCAV Honour Board. These inaugural inductees have been classified as first generation professional coaches whose contributions helped to create Australia’s “golden era of tennis” and who each through their remarkable commitment to tennis coaching have pioneered and trail-blazed the way for all of us today and beyond. Over the 50 year history there will be many other coaches who will have met such criteria. Each year TCAV members past and present will have the opportunity to nominate their peers and colleagues to join our inaugural Hall of Fame inductees. A maximum of two (2) new nominees will be inducted each year. The TCAV Honour Board categories include LIFE MEMBERS, HALL OF FAME and LEGENDS. We hope that by inducting the first 12 Hall of Fame Coaches we will spark much discussion and healthy debate and begin to learn more about the wonderful achievements and contributions to the great game of tennis from our TCAV coaches. We trust that all TCAV members will recognise the underlying spirit of creating these awards.
