At the age of 98, Jo Fort decided to hang up the tennis racket. Jo was a fixture at the Waegwoltic Club for as long as anyone can remember playing in her early morning ladies group enjoying what the game of tennis has given back to her. This summer Tennis Nova Scotia held a special Jo Fort and Friends mixed doubles event at the Waegwoltic Club as a fundraiser in Jo’s name. The recipient of this award would be given a subsidy toward their future tennis endeavors as they start out on their tennis journey. Jo recently turned 99 and Tennis Nova Scotia was there to award Jack Comeau with the first Jo Fort Scholarship to assist with his training. We would like to congratulate both Jack and Jo for what they have given and will continue to give and receive from the sport of tennis for many years to come.

  • The Jo Fort Award will continue to be awarded to an Under 10 player in Nova Scotia to assist with training. Each year TNS will host a Jo Fort and friends events to assist in raising funds for this scholarship.
