Wrexham Tennis Centre Announces New Appointments
Wrexham Tennis Centre are delighted to announce the appointments of Linda Sawyer as Welfare Officer and Jenny Broughall as Tennis Development and Competition Officer.
Linda has recently retired after 25 years of teaching in primary schools, with the most recent being in Wrexham.

She is a member of Wrexham Tennis Club and has been secretary for many years.
"I am now the centre's Welfare Officer and feel that this role is incredibly important. If you experience anything that is discriminative, or see something that you think is not in line with our safeguarding rules, please come and let me know. No matter how big or small, I am dedicated to making sure our centre is as positive and inclusive as it can be."
Jenny comes to Wrexham Tennis Centre after working for Tennis Wales since 2011 as North Wales Regional Participation Officer and National Competition Lead. Jenny also managed the Wales national tournament programme and was the Tournament Director for the Welsh National Championships for a number of years.
