I was born into a tennis mad family. Each time my father was appointed to a new school, the first job of the P&C was to build a tennis court.

The parents working on damming the mighty Murrumbidgee River brought their heavy work equipment up on the weekend and carved the tennis court out of the side of a steep hill.
