Bedfordshire Tennis Awards 2015

Within the next few days all registered clubs should receive correspondence from the LTA regarding the launch of a British Tennis Awards programme. I understand that during October nominations for these awards can be made through the LTA website. Anyone will be allowed to nominate a person (could be themselves) or a venue for an award. There is likely to be eight categories as follows:

1. Volunteer Award

2. Young Volunteer award

3. Outstanding Achievement Award

4. Coach Award 

5. Club Award

6. Community Award

7. Disability Programme Award

8. Education Award



Presentation of Awards

Beds LTA will play a part in this process by selecting County winners for these awards which will then go on to a Regional selection before the final choice is made by the National Awards Panel. The closing date will be the 23rd October 2015. We at Beds LTA wish to reward all County winners by being a guest of Beds LTA at the annual Dinner/Dance which this year is to be held at Venue 360 on 14th November where they will receive acknowledgement of their achievement. Further details are available on the Beds LTA social media platforms

I would therefore seek to encourage all to participate in making nominations for these national awards so that we have as many as possible from which to select a County Winner.


Player Awards

Additionally the LTA will also be making awards to the National Player and Junior player but these will be made at a national level. However, we are keen to make player awards at a County level too, possibly in female/male, junior/senior categories and a Team of the year. Therefore, please send any nominations for these awards to me together with a brief statement supporting your nominations by the end of October.

I look forward to seeing a wide spread of nominations for all these awards both National and County.
