GSTC – Meet your Committee

The committee at the tennis club has changed a little this year, so for the next few months we will be bringing you short interviews with members of the committee. First up, Angharad Harris, our new Chair.

Chair 2022

 Q: What’s your name and where do you come from?

A: My name is Angharad. I was born in London, but spent the majority of my childhood in Oxfordshire. Then I moved to Cambridge for university, aged 18, and have never looked back.

Q: How long have you been playing tennis?

A: I first started playing aged 9 when we moved from Surrey to Oxfordshire. I joined Great Shelford in 2016.

Q: Why did you join the committee at the tennis club?

A: Sport has brought me so many things in my life – skill, a sense of achievement, discipline, friendship, happiness, an escape from reality. If I can volunteer my time to ensure that some other young (in years or in spirit) person can benefit from all the advantages of local sport, then for me that is time well spent. It’s a way for me to give back to my community.

Q: What’s the one thing you want readers to know about you?

A: How to pronounce my name! It’s a Welsh word and, as such, is totally phonetic and has the emphasis on the penultimate syllable. The “g” is soft, like at the end of “sang”, and the “h” is not silent. So it is pronounced “ang-HA-rad”. If you’re interested, it means “much beloved”.

Q: What’s your guilty pleasure?

A: Only one?! Haagen-Dazs salted caramel ice cream

Q: If you really knew me you would know…

A: I played lacrosse for Wales whilst at university
