Rev Dr Margaret Court has been nominated as a National Living Treasure by the National Trust of Australia. Women’s Day website has a short-list of 100 nominees where you can vote for her.
Margaret Court is Australia’s most successful and celebrated tennis player of all time. No player in tennis history has ever surpassed her incredible record of 62 grand slam titles, in both singles and doubles. Margaret became a Christian while she was still the world’s best. In 1991 Margaret was officially ordained to ministry and a year later established her own outreach ministry Margaret Court Ministries Inc.
The National Trust of Australia (NSW) CEO Brian Scarsbrick, AM says“The title National Living Treasure is conferred when someone accomplishes an outstanding achievement, swelling the country’s consciousness with admiration, pride and acknowledgement.”
