Vital support for rise to top

IPSWICH is supporting Archie Graham in his rise to the top of the tennis world.

To hold on to his world number one title, Graham will need to travel the world to compete at the upcoming Tennis World Championships in Delaware.

Graham has always enjoyed a wealth of support from the Ipswich District Junior Tennis Association Courts but as a non-profit organisation the travel costs rest on the shoulders of the Graham family.

Ipswich City Council, and mental health organisation Open Minds, have stepped in and contributed $500 each to keep Archie on court and doing what he does best.

Yesterday, Graham was joined by Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale to receive his latest donation.
