Director at Large 1: Christine Neilson
Christine is from London, England moving to Los Angeles in 1991 then relocating to Seattle in 2012, so she and her wife Barbara could be closer to their grandchildren in Vancouver, WA.
She first picked up a tennis racket in her mid-twenties and became hooked but did not play regularly until joining LATA in Los Angeles. Christine finds tennis to be a great way to get exercise and loves the challenge of improving her game. One of her goals is to incorporate the travelling she and her wife do with playing in GLTA tournaments and attending WTA & ATP tournaments around the world.
As a member of the STA board Christine hopes to help STA in its growth, particularly in encouraging more women to join and participate.
