Sophie Hughes - Board Member (South)

Sophie joined the Board of Tennis Wales in July 2020 after being elected at the South Wales Annual Open Meeting in November 2019.  She is an equity Partner at Watkins and Gunn solicitors an award-winning South Wales legal practice; where she heads up the Family Law Team.  Away from her professional life Sophie has been a keen tennis player from a young age; playing for many years at Radyr LTC.  Her family moved away from the area whilst she was at university, but after a spell living and working in London returned to the Welsh Marches.   Sophie is the current Chair of Monmouth Tennis Club and helped raise grant funding for a new gate access system and the re-surfacing of the clubs courts; an investment of nearly £40,000 in the facilities.  Sophie is married with 2 adult sons, neither of whom share quite her passion for the game – but she continues to work on them!  Sophie is looking forward to supporting Tennis Wales to achieve the future vision for the game in Wales.
