Remembering Mr. Geoff L. Ward 1927 - 2021

We were saddened to hear the news that Mr. Geoff Ward passed away peacefully on Wednesday 8 September 2021, aged 94. 

Geoff was a friend to many of us, always keen to quiz about developments in tennis, happy to relate stories of tennis successes and losses, so knowledgeable, being a great mine of fascinating stories and information. 

Geoff played at Wimbledon most years between 1950 to 1961, he won the British Closed Seniors’ grasscourt men’s 55 singles and doubles in 1983. He was made a Full Member of the AELTC in 1962.

Geoff was elected to the IC in 1955 and was Captain in 1977, being elected as an IC Vice-President in 1996. He represented Middlesex for many years and was a regular supporter of his County teams.

Our thoughts are with Geoff’s family and friends.
