Sue was invited to Buckingham Palace as part of the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations this summer. Sue received the invitation for her many hours assisting the development and running of tennis at Haverfordwest and in West Wales. As you can see her invitation was well deserved.
Sue joined the club in 1985 and was recruited onto the committee the following year and served as Treasurer from 1989 until the present time. She organised club junior coaching and coached herself from 1990-2005 and ran the Pembrokeshire junior tournament from 2000-2013, when it was brought under the wing of the Pembrokeshire LTA and Alison took over.
Sue joined the PLTA in 1990 and has been referee of senior tournament since 2009 until the present time.
She played in the club’s ladies team until 2011 and joined Tennis Wales veterans committee in the 1990’s, and became it’s treasurer for at least 5 years. She played in South Wales county teams in her 50’s and early 60’s.
Sue represented Wales in the Quadrangular International veteran matches against teams from England, Scotland and Ireland on 5 occasions- twice in Cardiff, twice in Scotland and once in Ireland, playing against all countries on each occasion.
Well done Sue.
