Tennis legend Margaret Court will no longer be vice-patron of her local tennis club, citing fierce opposition to her views against same-sex marriage.

Court lost her re-election for the position, after members voted her out of the Cottesloe Tennis Club in Perth, Australia.

She believes she’s being ‘silenced’ on the issue of same-sex marriage and the move was ‘politically motivated.’

Court also believes LGBTI people want marriage ‘because they want to destroy it.’
