History of the Lorraine Clark Memorial Perpetual Trophy:

The Lorraine Clark Memorial Perpetual Trophy is awarded to the winner of the lowest section in the WDTA Mid-week Ladies competition each season.  It is an encouragement award, commenced in her honour in 2001.

Lorraine Clark was on the founding committee for the Mid-week Ladies Competition and became the inaugural President.  WDTA Ladies commenced with 14 participating Clubs and she served as President for 6 years and remained on the general committee until 1991 when she was awarded Life Membership.  It is pleasing to note that our Mid-week ladies competition has expanded over the years, and currently has 37  Clubs participating. Lorraine attended the Gill Quillan tournament in July 2014 but sadly passed away in December 2014.
