Supporting the Sport of Tennis at Geelong Grammar School

Frank Sedgman Club's goal is to offer greater parental involvement and advocacy for the sport of Tennis at Geelong Grammar School. 

The Club would like to facilitate this through:
• Bringing parents together to support their children
• Fostering a love of the game for our kids
• Bringing a club atmosphere where every player and parent is valued
• Facilitating communication between parents, coaches, Teacher-In-Charge and the School

The long-term goal of the Club is to make GGS a centre of excellence for the sport of Tennis with promotion to the wider school community.

HISTORY

The original Tennis Support Group was established in 1993 by Patrick Moore (M'62) and named the Frank Sedgman Club.
The Club became inactive in approx. 2005. 
A revival was facilitated in February 2018 by Tanny Sutton, initially under the name of Tennis Support Group.
Mr Frank Sedgman AO gave his permission for the Club to once again adopt his name and the official relaunch took place at a Cocktail Party on 5 March 2020, with Mr Sedgman and his wife Jean in attendance.
