Re: A-z

Julia Madge Rose 'Madge' VALANTINE (VIC)
Born 1897 - Armadale
Married Walter D LIST in September 1927

Champion Australian fencer and accomplished surf lifesaver, swimmer and diver.

Maiden name sometimes published as 'Valentine'.

Ula VALKENBURG (NSW)
Born 1901

Runner-up in singles at the NSW and NSW HC Championships, Ula was considered a better doubles player and she won (with Nell Hall) the New Zealand title in 1932.

Nina Fisken VICKERY (NSW)
Married John Gordan 'Jock' or 'Jack' LOBBAN 7 February 1940

A competent baseliner who was probably more at home on 'chipped' hardcourts, she retired to family duties in 1940 following her marriage to Australian Long Jump champion and record-holder Jock Lobban. Both University 'blues', Nina and Lobban had played in the 1938 Metropolitan Championships together.

During the war, Flying Officer Jock Lobban died in an RAAF air accident, leaving his widow and a three year old son, John.

Once WWII ended, Nina did return to play local tournaments and the NSW Championships in 1945/46.

NSW HC Champion 1938
Killara Champion 1935
Cumberland Champion 1938
