TCAV is delighted to announce that JD coach James Cooper from the Elsternwick Park Tennis Centre was the lucky winner of the $3000 contribution prize from the TCAV to attend the USTA / USPTA conference in New York City in September 2018. James name was drawn out at the TCAV Awards night at RSY last Sunday.

The TCAV Board made the decision several years ago that it would use some of the interest from its reserves to help fund a member to further their tennis education anywhere in the world. As we have a working relationship (great member benefit) with the USPTA we encourage the winner to engage in a USPTA experience.

The TCAV also drew out two TA Grand Slam Coaches Conference packages generously donated by TCAV and TA respectively.

One of this year’s winners was our Life Member and esteemed Past President Judy Bull. It was Judy’s leadership and passion for coach education that drove these conferences under the TCA banner for many years.
