The Margaret Court Tennis Academy officially started in 2008. Coach Phil Shanahan ( nephew of Margaret Court) was amazed by the number of juniors in his local area that did not know who Margaret was, let alone the sheer magnitude of her achievements. Phil met with Margaret and formed the Margaret Court Tennis Academy.
“What an honour it is to have Margaret’s name at the forefront of our Academy! Margaret has always been my hero and we love her very much. Over the past decade, our players have amassed 27 National Titles as well as representing Australia 14 times. Our players are on the world stage in a sport that has given them so much. The Margaret Court Tennis Academy has taught them to love and enjoy tennis – respect yourself and your opponent and always give your very best know matter what!”
