Congratulations to Kay Wynn who was awarded the Merv Marshall Trophy at the AGM in July 2017.
Kay has been acknowledged for her outstanding contribution to the club. Kay has willingly put many hours into improving all aspects of our club. Tauranga Lawn members have benefitted from her positive attitude, excellent administration and organisational skills; from Midweek Ladies, Business House, Interclub, Club Champs, Club days, our new kitchen, and Club Uniform – your involvement is huge. Thank you Kay, we really appreciate your contribution to the Tauranga Lawn Tennis Club.
Some background to the Merv Marshall Trophy
Merv Marshall was Groundsman at the club in the 70s and a Life Member of the club. He was a good player who felt that it would be nice if someone other than the “gun” tennis players were to receive a prize each year, and offered to donate the Merv Marshall Trophy. This Trophy is awarded to a member for Sportsmanship / Outstanding Service.
