In 2007, the Margaret Court Tennis Academy invited rising star Abigail Tere-Apisah from Port Moresby New Guinea to live and train at our headquarters in Albury-Wodonga. Abigail was living and training at the Pacific Oceania ITF Facility in Fiji. To further her tennis, in 2008, Abigail moved to our training facility where she lived and trained for the next three years. Abigail was hosted by the Ellwood family and attended Albury High School. In 2011, Abigail received a Div 1 Tennis Scholarship at Georgia State University in the United States. For the next four years, Abigail headed the team and made the semi-final of the NCAA Championships. In 2014, Abigail graduated from Georgia State and is now ready to do amazing things. The Margaret Court Tennis Academy is so proud of our girl Abigail!
