Pippa (Photo: Trevor Hyde) will be standing down on 10 May after an extended seven-year stint. In every sense, she has been a hands-on President from day one. Quite apart from her work to support the League’s administration, Pippa holds the unique honour of playing in BWPL while in office – for English Roses!
Gordon was President for three years prior to Pippa’s appointment, which recognised his long connection with, originally, the former men’s national league, followed of course by his continuing inspirational leadership of the City of Liverpool Club.
BWPL chairman David Andrews said: “This is richly deserved recognition for Pippa and Gordon, who have both made tremendous contributions to the League, either behind-the-scenes or on poolside.”
Pippa will be handing over the Presidential chain to her successor, Trevor Pledger, as soon the League returns to full action.
