WANGARATTA tennis stalwart Pat Flynn has been honoured as a Tennis Victoria Country Week Legend.

Flynn, who has been playing at country week since 1962, was one of six people recognised during a ceremony at Swan Hill earlier this week.

The former Wangaratta Rovers Football Netball Club president won a division in 1980 and was runner-up on six occasions between 1997 and 2011.

“It’s always a good week – it’s the best tennis you will play for the whole year,” Flynn said.

Flynn has kept a list of the players’ names he has lined-up with since starting with the number topping 50.

The other country week Legends players to be honoured were from Sunbury, Macedon, Swan Hill, Wonthaggi and Buninyong.

More than 20 North-East and Border sides are taking part at country week this week.
