As a finalist for the Most Outstanding Club or Centre Award, Hume Tennis and Community Centre was one of three finalists out of over 800 Victorian tennis clubs. The virtual awards night yesterday.
Although the award ended up going to Fawkner Park Tennis Centre in South Yarra, manager and coach at Hume Tennis and Community Centre, Tim Connelly, is immensely proud of his team and community for their achievement in being nominated for the awards.
“Hume Tennis being named as a finalist is a recognition of the work we have done in innovating and adapting to the changing environment over the past 18 months,” Tim says.

The Melbourne Open and Victorian Open featured 24 of the world’s best wheelchair tennis players including homegrown talent Dylan Alcott.
