Then last year I got to play with a few other stars from the past women’s tour including Lesley Turner who won 2 French Open singles titles back in the 1960s; Judy Dalton who was a Wimbledon Singles finalist in 1969; and Di Fromholtz who was a top 4 player in the 1970s with wins over Evert and Navratilova.
The event is going to be hosted by our very own tennis star and SBS News Reader Anton Enus. Some of the players who will be competing include Ken Rosewall, John Alexander, Wally Masur, Lesley Bowrey, Judy Dalton, Liz Smilie and Sandon Stolle.

It’s not just about the tennis though, you also get a chance to meet so many amazing people during an event like this and at the lunch and morning tea breaks. The friendships and connections I have made mean even more to me than the incredible tennis memories. At the charity event held earlier this year at Kooyong I got to meet another lifetime idol in Evonne Goolagong at the dinner. Thanks to Tanya Lee and her Foundation, she has helped me achieve a number of lifetime dreams I never thought possible.
And if you’re up for a challenge, you might even take home one of the prestigious prizes for the male and female champions on the day, or one of the many raffle or auction prizes.
