Abbas (Ada) Merali

SJ Position:

Head, Stanmore Jafferys Racket Sports (SJRS)

Volunteering Experience:

Abbasali is a keen community volunteer from a young age. He has been an Assistant Treasurer of the World Federation and an Executive Councillor of COEJ.
With his passion for Tennis, Abbasali was the youngest elected Board member of the Middlesex Lawn Tennis Association, a position he held for 7 years until 2016. He has also captained Lowlands Tennis Club in the Middlesex league for a similar period.
More recently, he took on the challenge of becoming the Chair of Stanmore Jafferys Racket Sports (SJRS) with the vision of putting rackets sports firmly on the community map, grow participation and develop grassroots talent. He was grateful for having the opportunity with his team to achieving his vision of a unique festival celebrating all four rackets sports for entire families under one roof over the same weekend with the inaugural SJRS Championships, a festival of Rackets that took place in 2018 and is keenly awaiting the 2019 Festival in July!

Sports Interest in General:

Abbasali has been a keen sportsman ever since his childhood days in Mombasa playing several sports and representing Mombasa Jafferys in Cricket and Tennis at the age of 11.
His passion for racket sports and in particular tennis has seen him enjoy significant success in the sport winning several tournaments and leagues both inside and outside the community and has no less than 7 MAMT tennis titles to his name. However, the MAMT title he enjoys most is the over 34s Football title where he scored the winning penalty against the SJ Chair! He has also led SJ to success in Supreme Council Festivals.
While his focus has shifted to developing racket sports in our community, he continues to represent his club David Lloyd Northwood in the top Middlesex Leagues and is an active badminton and football player.
His favourite all time tennis player is Roger Federer and Abbasali is a life long and long suffering Tottenham supporter!

SJ Motto:

Keep believing that together we can make a difference in sport
