At the 2014 AGM, we announced Life Membership Awards for Joy and Malcolm Studd. As Joy and Malcolm were away on holidays at the time, a special presentation was made at a recent Thursday morning social gathering. It was great to have many of their family members also present for the presentation.Both Joy and Malcolm have been wonderful members, supporters and players of the club for many years.
In supporting Joy’s nomination, Marjorie Chilver recalls many great memories of playing mid-week ladies with Joy including her forehand drive down the tram lines and her wonderful cooking that ensured everyone looked forward to mid-week ladies lunches when Joy was rostered on for the main course or dessert. Joy also took great pride in looking after the various garden beds at the tennis club, spending many hours over the years planting and weeding the gardens.
Both Malcolm and Joy also organised the very popular Thursday morning social game, bringing together past and present tennis players for a regular social hit and get together. Malcolm has played senior tennis and night tennis at the club over many years.
