2017 British Tennis Awards - nominate now!

The British Tennis Awards are back for a third year and it’s over to you to nominate your unsung heroes.

It’s time to say ‘thank you’ to Britain’s 25,000 volunteers, 20,000 schools supported by the LTA and the Tennis Foundation, 9,700 LTA approved tournaments, 2,700 clubs, 4,400 coaches and 940 officials that help keep tennis ticking.

Launched in 2015 with the help of former LTA president Cathie Sabin OBE, the Tennis Foundation and the British Tennis Awards are in place to celebrate the thousands of people who dedicate their life to supporting the grassroots of the game, whether it’s through recreational competitions or disability programmes.

Shine a light on your unsung hero and nominate them now!

Last year’s Volunteer of the Year Award went to Wendy Glasper – a volunteer who revolutionised visually impaired tennis in the North East region. Although receiving national recognition was a dream for Wendy, it was the initial nomination that meant the world.

I was thrilled, it felt an honour. I never thought I would get nominated for an Award. To recognise volunteers for their work is really important.

The national closing date for nominations is November 30, however dates vary per county so make sure you check yours when you nominate. Finally, as a thank you for your nomination, you’ll also receive a 25% discount code for British Tennis Team Membership  there's no better reason to nominate now!
