Albury Tennis Association has bestowed life membership on three dedicated representatives.
Sandra Rouvray, Ken Wurtz and Dianne Wurtz were all recognised for their service to the association across a number of years.
Ken Wurtz has been one of the association’s greatest players, but has also held down an integral role as a coach, administrator and volunteer – with more than 50 years of service.
His strong relationship with junior and senior tennis on the Border and wider region has seen Ken devote much of his life to Albury Tennis Association.
There’s a strong family connection to the association with his brothers, Rod and Graham, and wife, Dianne, also now a life member, all heavily involved.
Dianne has made huge sacrifices for the association by also supporting Ken.
Members admit it’s impossible to separate Dianne and Ken’s commitment to the sport.
Coming through Albury’s junior ranks, Rouvray has devoted her life to tennis.
She has been an excellent A grade player, as well and a committee member and administrator for many years – going above and beyond what is expected.
Rouvray has spent many hours in a voluntary capacity to ensure the general operation of the club runs smoothly, with her work often going on behind the scenes.
