Nominations have opened for the Tennis Scotland Awards 2018. The awards present an excellent opportunity to recognise the achievements, work and dedication of individuals, clubs, teams, tournaments and programmes throughout Scotland this year.
The Tennis Scotland Awards 2018 will be spread across 15 different categories with the winners of 10 of these being put forward to the British Tennis Awards. Among the winners last year were Cameron Norrie, who lifted the International Player of the Year title, Aidan McHugh who was Junior Player of the Year, having also won the title the previous year, while Rutherglen won the Club of the Year title for the second year in succession.
Tennis Scotland CEO Blane Dodds is urging people involved in the sport throughout the country to get their nominations in as soon as possible. “There is so much currently happening in our sport and this is a great way of showcasing the fantastic work undertaken by our tennis community across Scotland, as well as sharing good practice in different areas of the sport.”

*The Young Person of the Year (formerly Young Volunteer of the Year) is so called to broaden the category to include young people who may be tennis leaders or coaches but who go above and beyond their paid role and contribute significant hours of their time volunteering, in addition to those young people who are unpaid and volunteer.
** The Community Award criteria has been revised more than any other award to make it more distinct from the Club of the Year award and to encourage more nominations.
***The Lifetime Achievement award (formerly Outstanding Achievement) is so called to differentiate between volunteers who have contributed an immense amount over the course of one year, to volunteers who have committed many years of their lives to tennis and have demonstrated a lifetime dedication to the sport.
Winners will be announced at the beginning of 2019, along with the announcements for any Special Awards and Junior Performance Awards.
