Cathie Sabin was instrumental in growing the game in Britain, recognising the need to get people involved at all grades of tennis from grassroots through to elite level. Her tenure as LTA President form 2013-2016, in conjunction with sitting on many committees and steering groups, enabled her to become influential.
Cathie became a member of the ITF Olympic Committee in 2015 and was awarded an OBE in the 2016 New Year Honours List for Services to Tennis.
We would encourage our members to read some of the tributes to Cathie, especially from the LTA and various County associations.
Cathie’s heart remained in Shropshire tennis, which she represented both on and off the court for many years. Our condolences at this sad time go out to her close family and friends.
