Mr Maurice Philp, formerly President of Tennis Queensland from 1998-2004, is a retired Specialist Consulting Civil Engineer who assisted a variety of private, semi-government and government clients on a wide range of projects from small residential estates to multi-story commercial buildings and industrial and mine developments. Throughout his career, Maurice provided advice on matters covering the complete range of geotechnical engineering from investigation and design stages of projects through construction to performance evaluation during project life.
Maurice has been acknowledged by Tennis Queensland as the instigator of much change and was credited with being primarily responsible for developing and delivering professional governance within that organisation. He was a member of the Technical Services Advisory Group that published the first edition of Tennis Queensland’s Technical Manual for the Design, Construction and Maintenance of Tennis Facilities.
It was Maurice’s love of tennis that created his solid connection to the game, the tennis fraternity and to our mutual cause which champions good court construction processes.
