Tennis Sydney and Amazon Tennis are sad to announce that our former President, Carl Copas, passed away on Sunday August 28 2016.
Carl was President of Tennis Sydney on two occasions - 1996-1998 and 2002-2004 - and for many Members, past and present, was one of the first people to welcome them to the Club. Carl was inducted into the Tennis Sydney Hall of Fame in 2006 for his outstanding contribution to and leadership of Tennis Sydney.
The Committee and Members extend their sincere condolences to Carl's friends and family at this sad time.
Tennis Sydney/Amazon Tennis is committed to helping our members improve on their skills, and we are delighted to announce our Club Coaching Program to all new and beginning players.
