Congrats Jacqui Boyd – Our Young Seniors World Tennis Champ!

Jacqui Boyd, Digital and Media Marketing Manager at Johnson and Johnson Sub Sahara Africa recently returned from Antalya, Turkey, where she represented South Africa at the Young Seniors World Team and Individual Tennis Championships

The Seniors World Champs is held in a different country each year, with age divisions ranging from 35+ to 80+. This year’s tournament fielded numerous top 100 former players from all over the world representing their countries, including the tennis power houses of Spain, France, USA, Argentina and Germany. 

Jacqui is a former SA no. 1 junior tennis player and currently no. 1 in the 35+ division in South Africa, and says she was proud to represent SA in the tournament: “It was an honour to represent our country for a second year in the championships,” she says. “I represented South Africa for the first time when I was 15 years old, and it’s still such a privilege to be able to do this. Meeting and playing alongside so many great players, both former and current, was an awesome experience, and we formed great bonds and friendships. Playing for SA is something I hope I’ll be doing for many years to come.”
