County Colours for Sue Whitear
We were delighted to learn that Sue Whitear, long time club member, was awarded her Surrey County colours at the recent Surrey Tennis AGM. Keith Glass, President of the Surrey LTA presented Sue with her colours. During her time playing tennis Sue has played at Westside for 20 years and also in Spain at Lew Hoad’s tennis centre; she was also a member of the 45 Club and the AVLTA run by June Pearce. Sue, along with her late husband Mike, were always involved in tennis and knew many people and made many friends through playing tennis both here and in Spain.
Sue was invited to play for Surrey Over 70 to begin with and now plays for the Over 75s team, reaching the final in 2017, where the team played at the Finals in Dudley where they won by one game! In 2018 Surrey beat Lincoln away to reach the final where they again won.
Surrey are extremely successful at county level, winning in many of the age groups and it is very competitive to get into the teams, so well done Sue and we look forward to hearing of more success during 2019!
