Why did you become an Inter County Team Captain?

I have enjoyed playing Inter County squash so, when asked to be a captain, I was keen to give something back.

 

What do you enjoy the most about playing for Berkshire?

Berkshire is a very friendly county and I know a number of ladies who play for the county and I have enjoyed playing with them.

 

Where and when did you start playing squash?

I learnt to play squash at school in Harare, Zimbabwe when I was 15 years old.

 

Who was your biggest influencer in the game?

The school squash scene in Harare was very active and there were a number of excellent coaches.  Playing squash in the Zimbabwe junior teams against much stronger opposition in South Africa greatly influenced our experiences in the game.

 

What was your most important squash development?

Being exposed to international squash really helped develop my game, experience and skills.

 

What was your most significant squash event?

It is difficult to say, as I played in the Zimbabwe Open when I was much younger. I was then away from the sport for many years and returned to play recently in the Masters Tournaments in Europe.  I think playing in the World Master Tournament in Joburg in 2016 and in the USA in 2018 were the most exciting events and I love playing squash with people from all round the world.

 

What is your proudest squash moment?

Beating the Israeli No 1 in the Zimbabwe Open many years ago.

 

What other squash successes have you had?

I played in the Plate Final in my age group at the last two World Masters events and I have won a number of Master Events in Europe in my age group.
