MATTHEW WATSON ANNOUNCED AS AN LTA TENNIS AWARD REGIONAL WINNER FOR 2022

Some exciting news! Our Head Coach, Matthew Watson, has now been selected as Winner of the Development Coach of the Year Award for the entire Eastern region in the 2022 LTA Tennis Awards. Over 2,500 entries were received for this year’s awards and were first judged at county level which resulted in 350 winners. As Suffolk Development Coach of the year, Matthew  was then put forward for regional awards. He will now go forward to the LTA Tennis Awards 2022 National Ceremony on 19 May, which will be broadcast across LTA social channels.   The awards, which are now in their seventh year, acknowledge the impressive achievements and contributions of schools, clubs and LTA-approved tournaments, volunteers and venues that are so integral to the delivery of tennis in Britain.   To mark their success at a regional level, alongside advancing to the national finals, all of the regional winners will be presented with a trophy to mark their achievements.   LTA Volunteer Manager, Alex Beaumont, said: “The LTA Tennis Awards are our way of highlighting the incredible achievements and contributions of people across Britain that give so much to our sport – from grassroots to the elite level.   “This year’s entries were of an extremely high calibre and our judging panels for all categories had incredibly difficult decisions to make. “We would like to congratulate all of the regional winners and we are really looking forward to announcing the 2022 winners and celebrating their outstanding achievements at the national ceremony on 19 May.” 

Everyone who knows Matthew will know that this is a richly deserved award for all his work and commitment. Massive congratulations to Mathew, and a big thank you too to all members who sent nominations!

FLOODLIGHTS

The literally brilliant news is that our new floodlights have finally arrived, and as you see are up and shining! The new energy saving LED lighting uses minimal current, but still improves the light levels on all courts to the specified LTA competition standards. The lighting is also virtually maintenance free, meaning an ending to the annual halogen bulb changing.

The lighting was purchased partly with funds raised by members and their families, and partly with a generous grant from Babergh District Council. The lights were fitted by Richard Baldwin Electrical. The Club would like to thank everyone who supported their fundraising efforts and made the new lights possible.
