Agnes Kern

DSA Award Winner (2018)

Agnes has been a strong advocate of tennis and in recent years a strong advocate of senior tennis at Brampton Tennis Club and still up to today, continues to promote tennis activities. Because of her contributions, the club remains a top performer in Ontario for the Plus 55 league.

Thirty years ago, Agnes became involved in the management of the Inter-County Tennis Association (ICTA). First serving as a Ladies Division Chairperson, then 10 years later, she became the ICTA Vice President. The ICTA started with one Major division of 8 teams 45 years ago and now has about 300 teams. In 1996, Agnes developed the Plus 55 League and found a niche for her and other seniors. In 1998, she became the ICTA President and spent the next 6 years developing their web site. As the ICTA Past President, the position of Juniors League Director was unfilled so she stepped in and added the Juniors Mixed League (World Team Tennis format) on Sundays. It has proven to be an effective alternative and continues to flourish at a Major and A level.

Agnes is an exemplary volunteer and most deserving of this award.
