Court 1 at Dover Square Tennis Club is named in honour of our much loved former Club Patron, Jack Lynch.
After retiring from a stellar career playing for his beloved SANFL football team West Adelaide in 1958 (Jack was proudly inducted to the SANFL Hall of Fame in 2006), Jack's sporting interests were evidently satisfied by coaching tennis to young players at Dover Square Tennis Club.
A devoted Catholic, Jack spent much of his life after football volunteering at St Josephs, Brighton. He also worked at Mitsubishi Motors (formerly Chrysler), where he was as loyal as he was to West Adelaide (and, of course, to us at Dover!)
Jack's involvement in our Club was deeply appreciated, and he was loved and respected by all he came in contact with.
Passing away on New Years Eve in 2018 aged 89, Jack is survived by wife Ann (married in 1956), children Peter, Michael, Elizabeth, Anthony, Margaret and Robert, 17 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
Game. Set. Match Jack - your legend will forever live on at Dover Square Tennis Club.
