Jimmy Wong

DSA Award Winner (2012)

Jimmy Wong has volunteered in numerous capacities at the Thorncliffe Park Tennis Club for many years. He is also a long time volunteer at the Rogers Cup. He assists in the promotion and organization of all club events, represents the club at Tennis Toronto and OTA meeting and has initiated fundraisers at the club for the Terry Fox Run and for the purchase of children's tennis racquets.

Jimmy is well known in the Thorncliffe Park community as a tireless promoter of tennis for children and adults alike. He still offers free lessons to new members. Many of the club's current adult members learned their first strokes form Jimmy.

Jimmy puts in many hours at the club taking responsibility for the clubhouse, interacting with local teenagers, or preparing his legendary pot of Chinese rice for social events. At the end of the evening Jimmy ensures that members get home safely by offering them rides.

One could not imagine a better ambassador for community tennis than Jimmy Wong.
