Di has previously served on the WAMS committee, as well as 3 AMSA Perth Tournament committees, appearing in numerous “wrinklies revue’s”.  She has competed at 3 World Masters Squash Tournaments (successfully) and in 1 World Masters Games representing WA/Australia.  She is also a long time financial sponsor of WAMS.

We couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of this award – Di consistently promotes WA Masters Squash – every new player at Pennants or Clubs get asked “do you play Masters, do you want to play Masters? – you should, it’s great fun!”

She thoroughly deserves this award ‘Services to Masters Squash 2019’.  Well done Di
