Troy's Early Life
Troy was born at the Royal North Shore Hospital on 9 June 1982 to parents Sue and Garry Delmege. He has one older sibling. The family lived in St Ives, where Troy attended local schools, beginning at St Ives Primary, and then on to St Ives High.
As a youngster, Troy dabbled in many sports, including soccer, baseball, and tennis. Both his parents were keen tennis players, and after a while this became his main sport as well. He played lots of junior tournaments as a kid, and in 1994 he had the privilege of representing NSW as their number 2 player in the PSSA Bruce Cup. He had many tournament successes in subsequent years, and in 1998 he won the prestigious Northern Suburbs Tennis Association award for Junior of the Year.
After High School
After graduating high school in 2000, Troy began studying a Bachelors of Commerce degree at UNSW, before an opportunity arose for a tennis scholarship at Marquette University in the US state of Wisconsin.
Troy made fantastic friends for life with his teammates on the tennis team, and lots of other student-athletes. He also developed a keen interest in college basketball, which was especially successful during his years at Marquette with their star Dwayne Wade. Troy graduated with a Bachelors of Business Administration, majoring in Finance and International Business. Then after some work and travel adventures across the US, Troy went back to Marquette and completed an M.B.A.
Troy subsequently returned to Australia to be close to his family, and has been living in Mosman for the past 7 years. He has worked in a number of professional roles for some of Australia's leading companies. Troy has never been married ( except on reality TV 😉 ), but hopes to settle down soon and start a family.
Troy is an avid Rugby League fan, and cheers for the mighty Manly Warringah Sea Eagles. He continues to play tennis and follow the professional game. He won the Northern Suburbs Tennis Association Open Mens Doubles in 2016 and 2017. He likes to stay fit and trains at the gym almost every day.
Both Troy's parents have been active volunteers within the local tennis community. Sue was administrator of Northern Suburbs Tennis Association from 1998-2016, while Garry was Club Captain at Kooroora Tennis Club from 1996-2016.
Troy loves animals, particularly dogs. His family have a pug cross cavalier spaniel called Bessie, and a Maltese cross silky called Molly.
