Brenda Wilcox was an active player for many years at the Seattle Athletic Club Downtown. Brenda's friendliness and sense of humor touched everyone who came into contact with her. She was never too busy to hit and encourage players who were beginning to learn squash. She loved competition, was a gracious winner and a gracious loser. This award honors the memory of Brenda and recognizes an individual who represents the principles of fair play and sportsmanship both on and off the court.

Past Winners


Team Nemesis - Division 2, Seattle Athletic Club

This year the Brenda Wilcox Sportsmanship Award is being presented to a league team, rather than an individual. Team Nemesis exhibited the essence of good sportsmanship in our social league when they agreed to replay one of their semi-final matches under tough circumstances that avoided the outcome of the semi-final having to be determined by a committee decision. Having replayed the match, they ultimately lost the semi-final, but did not complain for a second and accepted the final result. This really was a remarkable show of sportsmanship and good character. Thank you Team Nemesis.
