In memoriam, Tom Condon

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Tom Condon.

Tom has been one of, if not the greatest, supporter of tennis in the area – a tireless supporter of the Griffith Tennis Club, a keen player his whole life, constant tournament sponsor and Life Member.

Tom’s love of tennis was infectious, and will live on in the hearts and racquets of his children, their children and beyond. Tom was also immortalised in 2013 with the unveiling/naming of Court 8 – the Tom Condon court.

Our thoughts go out to Tom’s Wife, Jan, and their children who were with him at the end.

A public service will be held on Saturday 17th August at 11am in the Church of St Therese, Yenda, followed by light refreshments at the Yenda Diggers Club.
