Squash coach, official recognised at dinner
TWO local squash champions were recognised at the WA Squash Hall of Fame this month.
Lathlain resident Lyn Chandler was presented with the Service to WA Squash Award during the dinner on November 7.
She started playing squash at Belmont Squashworks in 1983 before joining the committee two years later, which she has been on apart from a oneyear absence. She has served on most of the WA Squash committees and is still involved in running the Monday night and day league competitions.
Victoria Park Squash Club coach Sue Hillier was awarded the 2017 Player of the Year. She has had an outstanding year starting with a win in the World Masters over-50 in April.
She went on to play in the final of the WA Open. In July, she won the Golden Open Div 1 and Masters event and later bagged the WA State Masters O50 title.
Hillier (54) represented Australia in the Masters Trans Tasman team in September, winning all her matches in the test series.
She then won her fifth Australian over-50 Championship in Ballarat.
