PEWSEY Tennis Club picked up two awards when county players and clubs were honoured as part of the British Tennis Awards.

The winners received their awards and prizes at the County Awards Ceremony earlier this month, with the prizes presented by Wiltshire LTA president Sir Geoffrey Owen.

Pewsey were named Club of the Year for their first-class facilities and varied programmes, while Keith Hampson was named the Volunteer of the Year for his significant impact as match secretary at the club.

The Coach of the Year prize was awarded to Rebecca Prince, from Wanborough Tennis Club, who has demonstrated quality on-court delivery and developed a fantastic and varied coaching programme at her club.

The Lifetime Achievement Award went to Marlborough Tennis Club's Barbara Jones for being an inspirational role model over many years of dedicated service to tennis in the town.

The Delta Tennis Centre in Swindon collected the Disability Programme award for the third year running for providing quality, accessible and affordable opportunities for people with a disability to play tennis.

The Community Venue Award went to Trowbridge Town Park for the second year running for having a strong presence in the local community and running a community programme inclusive of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

St Marys Calne Tennis Academy won the Education Award for its varied tennis programme of coaching and competitions for students of all abilities.

David Morris, from Royal Wootton Bassett Tennis Club, won the Young Person of the Year Award for the tremendous impact he has made at his club as well as being an excellent role model for all juniors.

The Tournament Award was awarded to the Minety Tennis Club Open tournament. This event is now in its fifth year and is run in conjunction with the local Macmillan Cancer support committee and raised over £4,000 for charity.

Wiltshire LTA Tennis chairman Roger Henry said: “The standard of the entries was really high and we’d like to congratulate all of the winners for their achievement.

"The judges had a tough job to select winners due to the overwhelming contribution made at tennis venues across the county.

"Is heartening to award those who put so much effort behind offering great tennis opportunities for all in Wiltshire.”
