Jack Crawford rolling his sleeves down in a match because of the cold (State Library of NSW)
Jack Crawford had connections to Ingleburn. His wife Marjorie Cox, also a tennis player and a State representative, came from Ingleburn. After his heroics in 1933, Jack and Marjorie returned to Australia and, needing time for relaxation after an exhausting schedule, spent some time at Ingleburn with her parents to recover. In early November the following year, Jack played in an exhibition match at the newly opened Ingleburn tennis courts in Memorial Park.
Jack Crawford died on 10 September 1991 and is buried with Marjorie at Denham Court Cemetery.
