Liz Jackson of Wigton Squash Club has been selected by Cumbria Squash Executive Committee as the 2009 recipient of the prestigious “Hazel Tait Award” for her extraordinary achievements in junior development at Club and County level.

Liz has given outstanding commitment to Wigton Squash Club for 25 years as Lead Coach achieving very successful and effective junior development programmes for the club over that period that have been recognised County wide. The Club would not have the strength it has now were it not for her dedication.

She has also been on the committee of Cumbria Junior Squash since 1994, taking over management of it in 2000.  Since 2000 the organisation has gone from strength to strength and can be considered amongst the best junior squash organisations in England.

These two great achievements, made possible because of Liz’s many attributes, dedication, commitment, excellent leadership, great attention to detail, extremely high work load and work rate, make her a very worthy recipient of this award.
