Game, set and match for Tennis NSW CEO

Tennis NSW recently announced the retirement of its Chief Executive, Glenn Tasker.

Glenn, who commenced with Tennis NSW in 2008, led the governance reforms recommended by the ground-breaking KPMG Review. During his tenure, Tennis NSW has expanded its Community Tennis Team to effectively service member clubs, associations and coaches.

Strongly supporting the Tennis Australia strategic plan, he has ensured MLC Tennis Hot Shots, Cardio Tennis and have been focus for Tennis NSW. He also led the drive to create the GIO Wheelchair Tennis Centre of Excellence as well as the new membership reform, which has taken effect on 1 June.

President Harry Beck thanked Glenn for his leadership and for creating important relationships with key stakeholders including the NSW Government and the governing body, Tennis Australia.

“The board is grateful to Glenn for his efforts and energy in changing the face and focus of the organisation.

He has led Tennis NSW during a significant period of change; empowered our hard working staff; and, fought hard for recognition of Tennis NSW’s stewardship of Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre,” he said.

Mr Tasker intends to devote more time to the Paralympic movement and improving his golf.

“I am grateful for the opportunities the board has afforded me. I believe Tennis NSW is in good shape for the next stage of its growth.

I am particularly proud of the staff we have working within the Tennis community and very pleased to have set up the GIO Wheelchair Tennis Centre of Excellence, which is already producing dividends for our WCT players. I will also have fond memories of the many wonderful people I have met, who keep tennis alive at the grassroots level.”

Mr Tasker’s last day will be 2 July. The board has commenced the process to recruit a replacement.

We all wish Glenn every success and happiness in the next chapter of his life.
