• 1 MINUTE READ

We are delighted to confirm the appointment of Sophie Hughes to our Board from 2020, as we continue to work towards our new vision for tennis opened up across Wales.

Barry Cawte, Independent Chair of Tennis Wales commented on the appointment

“We’re delighted to welcome to Sophie to our Board here at Tennis Wales. In our new 2020 – 2024 strategy we’ve committed to lead, govern and safeguard tennis in Wales to the highest standards in sport, and Sophie’s passion for tennis combined with her professional experience as a partner at Watkins & Gunn where she is Head of Family Matters will play a huge role is us achieving our vision”.

Our new 2020 – 2024 vision for tennis opened up across Wales launched earlier this year, and with 1,200 tennis courts across Wales, the Governing Body is committed to growing the game by making it relevant, accessible, welcoming & enjoyable right across the country in the years ahead.

Commenting on her desire to join Tennis Wales as a Director, Hughes added

“I am thrilled to be joining the Board of Tennis Wales at what is a challenging, but also very exciting time. Tennis has been a big part of my life. I am looking forward to working with the very talented team at Tennis Wales and helping further develop the game I feel so passionate about.”

Sophie Hughes was appointed to the Tennis Wales Board on 11th July 2020 at our virtual Annual General Meeting. We reported an increase turnover in 2019 totalling £1.1m along with a commitment to members to invest company reserves to help the sport navigate the current Coronavirus pandemic in Wales throughout 2020.

We would like to thank retiring Board members for their contribution to the organisation, and to the sport more broadly.
