IMG 0011Position: Associate Tennis Professional with expertise in programs geared toward youth ages 7-12. This includes the Pre-Junior Development, Future Stars, and Competitive Programs.

Joined High Point: 1979

Philosophy: Let young players enjoy the game, and through that enjoyment they will learn to apply themselves and gain proficiency.

 Judy was born in British Guiana (now Guyana), South America. She was introduced to the game at an early age by her father, who built a modified tennis court in their backyard. After attending the Ursuline Convent in her hometown of Georgetown, she enrolled at Southlands Teachers Training College in Wimbledon, England. Upon graduation, she taught at an elementary school in South London and then relocated to Jamaica where she taught mathematics to middle and high school students in Kingston.

 An avid tennis player for many years, Judy has won well over 100 tournaments in singles, women's and mixed doubles. Some of her other accomplishments include "Sportswoman of the Year" for tennis and table tennis in Guyana; twice representing Guyana at Junior Wimbledon; designation as the triple champion of the Antillean Indoor in Kingston, Jamaica; and at one point was ranked #3 in her age division for women's singles in Texas.

 Judy has always enjoyed working with young people and is actively involved with our youth programs. Besides instructing young players in the Pre-Junior Development, Future Stars and Competitive programs, she also frequently watches her students at tournaments. Judy runs the USTA Junior Team Tennis and is a strong proponent of the QuickStart concept.

 When Judy is not busy at High Point, she is busy with her family of cats. She enjoys gardening and is a jigsaw puzzle/word games enthusiast.
