Sad news from Tennis Shropshire

It is with much sadness that we have to inform you that Janet Dawes from Alverley Tennis Club and John Sabin, Cathies husband passed away last week.
 
Janet was a wonderful person and a long-time member of Alveley Tennis Club and was well known to many people across the county and inspired a lot of children to play tennis. She worked with Clive Knight as County Mini Tennis Organiser and her enthusiasm and enjoyment of working with the children was self-evident at both club and county level. As Bob Higgins described, “Janet was an inspiration to everyone”.
 
John was forever present in supporting Cathie throughout her tennis career and was regularly at her side when travelling around the country and world.  This support played a huge part in Cathie achieving everything she did.
 
Our thoughts go out to both families at this difficult time.
