It is with great sadness that we wish to inform you that Nicky Maskens, Chair of Tennis Oxfordshire, passed away on Tuesday.
Nicky had a long association with Oxfordshire tennis – as a club player, tennis parent and as a Tennis Oxfordshire management committee member who was totally committed to developing tennis at club and county levels. She was passionate about opening up the game for juniors and adults of all abilities.
As well as Chair of Tennis Oxfordshire, she was also Oxfordshire’s LTA Councillor and an LTA Board Member.
Nicky’s funeral will be at 4pm on Friday 24 May at Oxford Crematorium, Bayswater Road, Oxford, OX3 9RZ. Her family has warmly invited everyone to join them afterwards at the Oxford Belfry, Double Tree by Hilton hotel, OX9 2JW for refreshments and to share memories of Nicky.
Tennis Oxfordshire passes on its deepest and sincere condolences to Nicky’s husband, Tony and her sons, Jonothon and Antony.
As a committee we will miss Nicky’s fair and shrewd decision-making, her unwavering and encouraging support of colleagues, her sense of humour, pragmatism and kindness. She will be an almost impossible act to follow.
