It is with a desperately heavy heart that I write to inform everyone of the tragic death earlier today of Peter Westall.

Peter was in Bulgaria with Diane taking a short holiday and preparing to play in the upcoming European Veterans & Men’s Triples competitions next week.

Peter died suddenly in his hotel room this afternoon at approx. 2.00pm local time. Diane was with him at the time.

I have been in communication with Diane all afternoon and evening. Their daughters, Louise & Lindsey, are en route to Bulgaria to be with her.

Please can I ask everyone to respect the family’s privacy at this very difficult time.

Thank you.
