Mary Scott-Miller

Kent Squash has lost one of its most loyal and distinguished servants following the sad passing of Mary Scott-Miller.

Mary served the Kent SRA as county development officer and junior girls’ organiser and was also renowned as an international-standard referee.

She introduced hundreds of girls to the sport, including the current Commonwealth Games women’s singles champion, Gina Kennedy.

Mary and her husband, Alan, were members of Tunbridge Wells Squash Club.

 

As a referee, Mary officiated at numerous world-ranking tournaments, including the Commonwealth Games and British Open, and was a solid supporter of the Kent Open Championships when it moved to Tunbridge Wells.

As a former Kent chairman and president, I worked with Mary on numerous projects and her enormous contributions to the game will never be forgotten.

Mary received numerous long-service awards for her dedication to squash but never stopped giving back to the sport she loved.

 

Mary’s funeral took place in Tunbridge Wells on Monday and many lifelong squash friends travelled long distances to pay their respects.

Kent SRA members are invited to post their tributes to Mary below.
