Tennis club rallies in 24-hour fundraiser

A full day of non-stop tennis action was no match for the Golden Grove Tennis Club on their quest to raise money for Australian Breast Cancer Research! 

Following the passing of a much-loved volunteer to breast cancer in 2021, the club set out to honour their legacy and bring the community together for a worthwhile cause. 

Having previously held a 24-hour tennis marathon for Beyond Blue in 2016, the club decided to do it again this October. 

With first serve at 9am on October 7, the event saw tennis being played in the early hours of the morning, alongside more normal-houred activities such as a silent auction, bouncy castle and more, the culmination of six months of planning behind the scenes.  

And they aced their original fundraising target of $10,000 and ended up reaching $22,073 at final count.  

An incredible effort from all involved!  

In recognition of their outstanding endeavours, Golden Grove was named Most Outstanding Tennis Club at Tennis Australia’s annual awards night in December. 

Australian Breast Cancer Research is extremely grateful for the club’s generosity and congratulates them on being recognised on a national level.
