Hi I am Karen Meakins. I started playing squash in 1982 when I was 10. I was never a natural but lucky to have a very patient coach! What started as once a week at the local Leisure Centre soon turned into being at the courts at every opportunity! I played junior squash for Bedfordshire and many a weekend was spent with my parents driving me around England so that I could play in tournaments. I was a child that had tried everything from swimming to tennis to Brownies, so much to my parent’s relief I had finally found something that I loved!
