The ceremony, was hosted by TV presenter Lewis Vaughan Jones, and took place on Saturday 25 January 2020 at the Voco St Davids Hotel, Cardiff.  The 11 award categories recognised the achievements of players, volunteers, coaches, education providers, clubs and centres from across Wales over the past year.

9 of the Tennis Wales Award winners (*) will now go onto be considered for the British Tennis Awards, being held at the Wimbledon Championships in July.

Simon Johnson, CEO at Tennis Wales said:

I want to thank every single person who helps make our sport happen across Wales, from our volunteers, coaches and officials, to our players, parents & fans who are all vital to making event like the Awards such a success.
