Tennis (January 1994)

The Valdora cane farmer, who dominated Queensland country tennis for more than three decades, was king of one of the region's biggest sporting family. George's achievements included a staggering 106 trophies in singles, doubles and mixed doubles.

During his time with the Maroochy Tennis Association, George made the singles category his own. He also took out the mixed doubles seven times and the doubles 21 times, 17 times with his brother Edgar.
