Vale - Jack Carnell
Waverley Tennis is sad to announce the passing of another fine servant of tennis in general and the Association in particular. Jack Carnell passed away peacefully on 30th December 2018 with close family by his side. He was 93.
Jack served as Assistant Secretary to the Association for 17 years, 1993 to 2009, looking after the handbooks, scorecards and trophies.
In that period he arranged the printing of over 50,000 handbooks, thousands of scorecards and the ordering and distribution of over 14,000 of our trophies.
He loved his time at Waverley Tennis and was given Life Membership of the Association for his service.
Jack also loved his time with, and was also a highly-regarded member of, the Glen Waverley Tennis Club. The club has acknowledged that they will be eternally grateful to him for all of the work that he did as Secretary and also for doing the maintenance work on their courts for over 25 years. He was also honoured with Life Membership of his home tennis club, and the court in front of the clubhouse at Glen Waverley Tennis Court is named in his honour.
