In loving memory of Eve Methven of Beaworthy, formerly of Bristol & Hornsey (London), who sadly passed away on 8th February 2019.

Eve was a truly dedicated sportswoman throughout her life, only retiring from playing and coaching squash age 78! She competed at the highest levels in squash, winning the World Masters Squash Championship in the 65+ age group in 2001 amongst many other accolades. Sport was her passion and she was a Veteran England squash player, club netball player, University Lecturer in Physical Education and a squash coach in Bristol and Bude. Eve always devoted her time and energies to encouraging others and helping them to reach their potential, particularly through sport and fitness.

She will be sadly missed by her dear friend June, God-daughter Gill and all her family and friends.

Funeral Service at The North Devon Crematorium, Barnstaple on Wednesday 20th February at 12.20pm.

I met Eve through our mutual love of squash - we took part in several World Masters Championships together. Eve was very competitive and enthusiastic on court and fully enjoyed like off court.
