Harrogate and District Soroptimist President Sylvia Purser was delighted to present the Gill Smith Memorial Trophy for the ‘Best Girl Improver’ at the Spa Tennis Club to Freya Smith.
Freya joined Tennis Harrogate as a small child, aged 6. She really enjoys the classes and camps with Head Coach Matt McTurk and the team. She loves the structure, discipline and competitive edge to the lessons.
She likes that everyone is made to feel like they are doing well. She has never not wanted to go to tennis even when the British weather is at its worst. Freya has, throughout her time with Tennis Harrogate been largely outnumbered by boys but that really hasn’t deterred her, in fact inspired her.
