Petitioning Melbourne and Olympic Parks Trust Brian Morris, CEO and 1 other

Rename the Margaret Court Arena the Evonne Goolagong Arena.

We think it is unsuitable for your arena to continue to be named in honour of someone who has been consistently outspoken about her opposition to equality, diversity and inclusion.

Evonne Goolagong, who was Australian of the year in 1971, is also a great Australian tennis champion. She has a reputation for generosity and inclusiveness. She is a far more suitable candidate for the official name of your stadium.

Please rename the Margaret Court Arena, the Evonne Goolagong Arena.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Melbourne and Olympic Parks Trust
    Brian Morris, CEO
  • Tennis Australia
    Craig Tiley, CEO
