New EGLSF logo

We are very excited to present the new EGLSF logo! EGLSF was founded over 30 years ago and the logo has been with us since then.

Margaret Court controversy

EGLSF have followed the controversy surrounding the acknowledgement of Margaret Court’s tennis achievements. Successful sportspeople are role models and to have them vilify entire communities, as Margaret Court has done to the LGBTQI+ community, is extremely damaging. Her comments make LGBTQI+ people unwelcome, and suggest they have fewer human rights – such as access to sport – or at best, presumably should only be allowed to participate if they hide who they are. This is against everything the EGLSF stands for, LGBTIQ+ tennis players, fans and communities deserve better. Tennis Australia is in a difficult position, and have handled the [...]
