The 2016 Senior 4 Nations Championships were hosted by Wales on the May Bank Holiday weekend at the Wrexham Tennis Centre. Haverfordwest LTC were delighted to be represented by Sarah Keogh, where she competed against England, Scotland and Ireland. Sarah says “It was a complete privilege and an honour to pull on the red jersey of Wales, an occasion I will remember forever. The atmosphere amongst all the Welsh girls was formidable, with all the girls supporting one another throughout the weekend”. The tennis on view was of the highest quality, with England taking the overall top spot. This opportunity has only whetted Sarah’s appetite to spend more time on the practice courts honing her skills and developing her match play. Previously, Brian Hearne, Sue Jones and Jenny Scoble have all gained international honours at the same event. Sarah was delighted to follow in their auspicious footsteps.
