    ASHLEIGH BARTY NAMED NATIONAL INDIGENOUS TENNIS AMBASSADOR
    "I'm a very proud Indigenous woman and I think that for me taking on this role is something very close to my heart. I'm very excited," Barty said.

    Darwin NT, Australia, 15 April 2018 | Tennis Australia

    Australia’s top-ranked tennis player and world No.18 Ashleigh Barty has been named National Indigenous Tennis Ambassador in a move to attract more Indigenous youth to tennis.

    The appointment comes following a break-out year in 2017, where Barty was awarded the Female Sportsperson of the Year in the National Dreamtime Awards, as well as the highest honour in Australian tennis the Newcombe Medal.

    Ashleigh was welcomed to the Northern Territory to make the announcement and given an exclusive tour of the new Darwin International Tennis Centre at Marrara, which will host the National Indigenous Tennis Carnival for the first time in September.

    “I’m a very proud Indigenous woman and I think that for me taking on this role is something very close to my heart. I’m very excited,” Barty said.

    “If we can get more kids playing tennis more kids enjoying tennis across Australia within the Indigenous communities that would be amazing.

    “This annual National Indigenous Tennis Carnival will be an amazing event, for not only tennis across Australia but especially Indigenous tennis. To bring all of the kids together to give them an opportunity to showcase what they’re capable of,” she continued.

    Tennis NT CEO Sam Gibson said both the appointment of Barty and the carnival were important steps in providing Indigenous youth more opportunities to play tennis.

    “Ash is an incredible ambassador for the sport and her community. We’re hoping her appointment as the National Indigenous Tennis Ambassador along with the inaugural National Indigenous Tennis Carnival will help us take tennis into more communities. Ultimately what we want to see is Indigenous youth from across the country really explore their passion for tennis and grow their love for it,” Gibson said.

    “Whilst a lot of the activity will be on the court, the carnival will also be a celebration of culture off the court with music and arts and the like.

    “Part of our commitment with the Northern Territory Government when building the new facility at Marrara was to stage the National Indigenous Tennis Carnival in Darwin each year and we are excited for the first one to take place this September,” he continued.

    As part of her trip to the Top End, Ashleigh Barty flew to the remote Wurrumiyanga community on Bathurst Island and conducted a tennis clinic at the local Murrupurtiyanuwu Catholic School.

    Tarlina Tipungwuti, a former tennis player and AFL footballer, who has just completed the Tennis Australia Foundation Coaching course, joined Barty in giving some lucky Tiwi Island kids their first taste of tennis.

    Tipungwuti is set to become a Community Sport and Recreation Officer, delivering ANZ Tennis Hot Shots and community tennis to kids on Bathurst Island.

    For Sam Gibson, conducting regular clinics in remote communities is just one way Tennis NT is enhancing the capacity of local communities to deliver quality participation program.

    “Our Indigenous Tennis Program will introduce tennis to more than 1000 remote children throughout the NT each year,” Gibson said.

    “Working with Regional Councils, Northern Territory Government and NT Schools, the program will deliver the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots to schools and communities, in the hope of building subsequent competitive pathways throughout the year.”

    Aga Radwanska and her new face. It wasn't good for her to "bulk up" while playing because it would make her "less feminine" per her team but I guess now that she's retired this is okay?

    Aga before



    She's shot her face full of fillers to the point she looks bloated and now has "Joker mouth"

    The bulking up comment was about the comments made that she didn't work out the way other women players did to maintain her feminine form. Now she "bulked up" in a different way and looks ten years older.

    Re Aga ó the dark look doesnít work for her. As for whatís going on with her face, I think we need to see other pictures before deciding if she just put on weight or had work done.
