Rename Margaret Court Arena

Sport has the power to unify, to break down barriers in society and to teach our children the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and grace in victory and defeat.

By continuing to name their flagship stadium after a divisive homophobe, Tennis Australia is undermining these noble sporting ideals and, in effect, endorsing outmoded and offensive views.

That’s why we’re asking you to Join our Thunderclap campaign to urge Tennis Australia to rename the Margaret Court Arena. Requests will be sent on social media asking you to authorise one posting from your social media accounts. This means that when we send our message, the same message will be sent from yours and thousands of other accounts at the same time, amplifying and magnifying our important message: imagine the impact of thousands of people sending the same message simultaneously! This is the one and only time the app has access to your account, and at no time does it keep any personal data other than the number of followers you have.
