Meet the Tennis Shropshire Management Committee

Tennis Shropshire is supported by a team of volunteer officials.

Cathie Sabin

Cathie Sabin - Honorary Past President

Cathie has just completed a term as President of Tennis Shropshire. She took on the role of councillor for Tennis Shropshire in 2000. The LTA Council elected her on to the main board and she has now been elected Deputy President of the Lawn Tennis Association.

Although she is heavily involved with LTA Main Board work she is still actively involved within the County. She has just handed over the reins as Chair of the Junior County Closed but will be co-ordinating the training of the ball crew for the Shrewsbury Pro Series and working on junior matters.

Cathie is chair of the National Education Advisory Committee, a member of the national Child Protection Committee, a trustee of the Tennis Foundation and attends Development and Performance committees.

Her heart is still in Shropshire and she is always available to answer queries, if she doesn't know the answer she will probably know somebody who does.
