Mr Timothy Hall is recognised for his distinguished career and exceptional service to community sports, particularly the Prince Alfred Old Collegians’ Cricket and Football Clubs.
Tim graduated from PAC in 1978, excelling as a student, College Prefect, and sportsman, earning Colours in Cricket and Football. Playing in the 1978 Intercol for the First XVIII, the records state that “he played on the wing, where his dash, sure ball handling and accurate disposal have been consistent throughout the season”.
He went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Adelaide in 1984, practising as a trusted commercial lawyer for 38 years, including as a Partner/Director at three firms over his career. He mentored young lawyers and worked across diverse industries, including environmental, recycling, construction, agriculture, food manufacturing, and IT.
Tim’s true fulfilment came from volunteer work, both locally and abroad, including travelling to Uganda to work with orphans using his expertise to advocate for educational and economic opportunities. He also mentored students and young men at the Old Scholars’ Football Club.
As a member of two Old Collegians’ sports clubs, his contribution has been invaluable. Tim played 11 seasons of cricket, including winning the 1984/85 A Grade Batting Trophy, and was made a Life Member in 1987/88. He also played 16 seasons of Football and 257 games for the Old Collegians. He was the 1980 A Grade Premiership player, won multiple awards for off-field service and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016. He was Vice-Chairman from 1988-1991 and 2014-2021 and became co-Chairman with Jim Parkinson in 2022.
His tireless efforts to realise modern facilities for the Old Scholars’ Football and Cricket Clubs reflect his principled nature and determination to realise a dream for the benefit and enjoyment of current and future generations of young men.
Tim is a man of principle and we are proud to acknowledge him.
