Margaret Gibson

DSA Award Winner (2017)

Margaret is an exceptional example of dedication to the sport of tennis. She had a successful career as a singles and doubles player, playing at Grand Slam events in Australia, France and England (Wimbledon) before becoming a coach. She was the Manager of the Canadian Junior National Team working for Tennis Canada in the early 1980s; however, it is her commitment to developing juniors of all ability levels for more than 30 years in Ottawa that makes her so deserving of this award. Through her round robins, countless juniors have developed a life-long commitment to the sport. Her focus has been as much on helping develop valuable members of the tennis community as it has been on creating top players. She always emphasizes the right way to behave on and off the court, and she has guided many parents through the process of learning to live with the ups and downs of having competitive children in tennis. Margaret is constantly promoting tennis to juniors and their parents in the local community. She is an unwavering source of encouragement for players, parents and professionals alike.
