Margaret Canby

Induction Year: 2016


Canby first discovered a love of tennis as a 9-year-old in San Antonio.  While tennis took a backseat to swimming and diving competitions during her high school and college years, the passion for tennis was always present.  Over her lifetime, Margaret has won over 40 tennis championships on clay, grass, hard court and indoor.  In 2013, she showed she still had it winning the Women's 80 singles Clay Court, Hard Court and Grass Court National Championships and placing first in the World Individual 80 Women's Double Championship.  She is currently ranked second in doubles and 12th in singles by the International Tennis Federation Super Senior World Ranking for her age group.  


Canby's tennis career has taken her around the world and she has captained the women's 80 and over team in the Doris Hart Cup.  In 2012-2015 Canby captained the Texas 80 Women's Intersectional Teams which won the national championship all four of those years. In 2019, she and her teammates won the Inaugural Women’s 85 Cup in Croatia.
