Greg Gibson was much-loved member of the Marrickville District Lawn Tennis Club and a much-feared competitor on the court.

Weeks before passing away in December from a short illness, Greg could be found organising Special Olympics tennis tournaments and winning sets on the court.

Greg will forever be remembered for his performance on the court and his lifelong contributions to Australian tennis.

For decades, Greg served as the President of the Marrickville District Lawn Tennis Club and was a stalwart and life member of the club for over 30 years.

He was the NSW Tennis co-ordinator since 1995 and attended over six national games through his decades-long involvement in Special Olympics Australia.

He was Head Coach for NSW Special Olympics four times in his long tennis career, Head Coach for the World Fames three times, and the technical delegate for tennis at the 2002 and 2014 National Games.

Greg will be sorely missed and I send my deepest condolences to his beloved family and to all the members of the inner west tennis community. Vale Greg.
