Tennis Australia launches MND campaign


Known as “Motor Neurone Disease” Down Under, and “Lou Gehrig’s Disease” in the U.S., amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a degenerative, incurable scourge that has hit tennis hard in recent years.

Particularly Australian tennis.


They’ve lost former ATP Tour CEO Brad Drewett, former top pro Peter Doohan and another former player Angie Cunningham, over the last few years.

Cunningham, a top junior, was the vice-president for player relations for the WTA. She had two young daughters.

So Tennis Australia has launched an awareness campaign that will get profile throughout the Australian summer.
