Leon Retallick is stepping down as Bendigo Tennis executive officer.

AFTER nine years in the role, Leon Retallick has resigned as Bendigo Tennis executive officer and will finish later this month.

Retallick has announced he has accepted a position as California Sporting Surfaces business development manager for Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia.

“It has been a privilege to be the executive officer of Bendigo Tennis for the past nine years, a time in which many significant changes to the organisation have been made, including court resurfacing and, of course, the construction of our new tennis facility,” Retallick said.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed everything we have collectively achieved and sincerely hope that I leave Bendigo Tennis in a strong position, one from which the organisation can continue to prosper.”

Retallick’s last day will be December 19.

Until his replacement is appointed, Bendigo Tennis board member Mark Perdon will take on the role part-time through the caretaker period.
