Obituary: Sue Collier - 28 July 2023
It is with great sadness that Cippenham TTC reports the passing of former player Susan ("Sue") Collier. Sue passed away on Wednesday (26th) at the young age of 56.
Sue played for Cippenham on thirty-four occasions between seasons 1991-92 and 1999-00 and was part of three winning teams in the British League. Sue spearheaded our team to the Women's British League Division 3 championship in 1996-97 and repeated this the following season in Division 2. That latter season she was also part of our inaugural Senior British League team that were winners of Division 3 South.
Sue had an illustrious playing career having been ranked number five in the country at senior level and appeared in international matches for England. She was also very highly ranked in her younger days in the national cadet and junior lists and then, later in life, was the number one in England at veterans' level. Before moving to Cheshire, Sue was the best player in the Maidenhead League and won the Ladies' Singles title at the Maidenhead Closed on no fewer than eighteen occasions including sixteen in a row between 1985 and 2000.
A nicer person you could not hope to meet - RIP Sue.
