Breakfast Meeting: Lawn Tennis Association and Friends of Sussex Hospices
Two great speakers at our next breakfast
Eastbourne Aegon Tournament Director for the Lawn Tennis Association
June will see Eastbourne’s Devonshire Park open its doors once again to the Aegon International Eastbourne WTA tournament showcasing some of the world’s finest female tennis talent as they prepare for Wimbledon. This year, men’s tennis also returns to the tournament.
With new facilities currently being built at Devonshire Park for this showcase event anticipation is already building for what we hope will be Eastbourne’s best tennis competition yet.
Eastbourne’s own Johanna Konta will also be returning home with hopes of winning the tournament this year.
Tournament Director Gavin Fletcher will be attending Tuesday’s breakfast and giving us an update on the tournament and plans for the future.
Kathy Gore OBE

This year, the LTA have once again chosen the Friends of Sussex Hospices as their charity of choice for the Eastbourne tournament.
Kathy has been involved since the charity started in 1995 and has held the role of Chair since 2001. Before moving to Sussex with husband Jack in 1993, Kathy worked in London for a US Investment Bank, marketing new share issues to European institutional investors.
Kathy was made a Deputy Lieutenant of East Sussex in 2006 and was High Sheriff of the county in 2011/12. Kathy has completed four London Marathons (in 2005, 2007, 2013 and 2015) and the Brighton Marathon (in 2011), raising funds for FSH. Kathy was privileged to have been an Olympic torch bearer in recognition of her fund-raising activities in 2012.
Kathy will tell us some of the amazing work the charity does locally, as well as how we can support our local hospices.
