Glenys Joliffe ASM, OAM, Life Member of TTACT, passed away peacefully on Christmas Day after a long and debilitating illness.

Glenys moved to Canberra in 1973 after a distinguished period in South Australia where she was a ranked and representative player and a long-term administrator.

There was then a short absence from table tennis occasioned by the birth of her two sons, but soon Glenys became involved again as both a player and an administrator for TTACT. Glenys was Secretary of the Association for 7 years before becoming President for some 15 years. This presidency established several records in that Glenys was the first female to become a State/Territory leader, and then the length of the incumbency became a record in itself.

During this extended administrative period, Glenys continued to play competitions and represent the ACT, initially in senior teams and then for many years as a member of veteran teams. If this be not enough in the veterans area, Glenys served for no less than 19 years on the National Veterans Committee, being a worthy lieutenant to Chairman Ken Cole.

Glenys also had a passion to highlight and advance the opportunities for women in sport being a member of several State/Territory Committees in addition to being a wonderful role model in herself.

Amongst her other passions Glenys brought the joys and benefits of our sport to school children, and also to those with disabilities – for over a decade she ran the Lyneham High School special group every Monday morning. She also organised and ran the ACT annual primary and secondary schools competitions for over a decade.

It is a wonder how anyone could give so much of herself in dedication, time and expertise, but we and table tennis are so grateful that she did.

Thank you Glenys from the table tennis fraternity in Canberra and throughout Australia, and also from your friends in the other avenues where you made an impact.

Condolences to husband Keith, and sons Blake and Caleb.

Rest in peace Glenys and thank you for your tireless contribution to our great game.
