Sad news that long-time member Graham Mulholland passed away earlier this month, and our thoughts go out to his family.
Graham and his daughter Daisy were members of the club during the last two decades. Graham stumbled upon the club on a walk as he was clearing his head one Sunday afternoon. After exclaiming he might like to have a hit, a club member gave him a racquet, and as the saying goes, the rest is history.
Graham was a colourful club day member, and he brightened the day for everyone with his quick wit and always asking opponents if they were ready to be aced by one of his sizzling fast serves.
Graham enjoyed the social side of the club and was often seen on the deck by court one deep in conversation and holding a bottle in his hand while also giving advice to those playing that they shouldn’t give up their day jobs after missing the ball or double faulting.
As William Wallace said… Every man dies, not every man truly lives … Graham certainly truly lived … RIP Graham.
(Graham Mulholland – 1945-2019.)
