Mosman Sporting Wall of FamePrint Page Print this page

The Mosman Sporting Wall of Fame, located at the Mosman Swim Centre is an initiative of Mosman Municipal Council. It was officially unveiled on Wednesday, 17 December 2003, by the Mayor of Mosman, Cr David Strange.

Etched on the wall are the names of athletes who have represented Australia at junior or senior level and have lived or are presently living in Mosman. The striking glass wall, designed by artists Roger Apte and Warren Langley, combines imagery of selected sports – cricket, rugby, swimming, sailing, athletics and rowing – with the shoreline and major roads of the municipality. Beside the wall is a touchscreen with further information on the sportspeople represented.

Note: The Sporting Wall of Fame was relocated to the Marie Bashir Sports Centre in October 2017.
