Shropshire Tennis leads the way again in The LTA Tennis awards

The LTA Tennis Awards recognise individuals involved in tennis at grassroots, county and regional level with awards such as the Cathie Sabin Volunteer of the Year, Development Coach of the Year and Official of the Year.

 

The awards, which are now in their sixth year, also acknowledge the impressive achievements of schools, clubs and LTA-approved tournaments through School of the Year, Club of the Year and Competition of the Year awards.

 

A record-breaking 2,600 entries were received for this year’s awards and were first judged at county level which resulted in 380 winners. These county winners were then put forward for regional awards.

 

In Shropshire we had three Regional Winners: 

 

Nigel Stonier, Woore Tennis Club - Volunteer of the Year 

 

Wrekin and Telford Tennis Community - Community and Parks Award of the Year

 

Ellesmere College - School of the Year

 

The regional finalists now progressing to the national finals (24 June 2021) together with winners from Tennis Wales and Tennis Scotland. Alongside advancing to the national finals, all of the regional winners will be presented with a trophy to mark their achievements over the coming weeks.

 

A MASSIVE congratulations to our three regional winners and good luck for the national finals!!
