Cheshire County Awards Evening

Over 300 people from across the county joined us at The Pavilion Suite, Chester Racecourse, to celebrate the very best of Cheshire tennis. It was such a special evening, giving everyone the opportunity to catch up before the busy Christmas festivities. 

The awards presented during the evening included the LTA Tennis Awards for the County as well as specific Cheshire County awards. Our Cheshire LTA Tennis Award winners go through to the  LTA Regional Awards and then, if successful, to the LTA National Awards.

We congratulate everyone who was nominated and shortlisted - it really is a remarkable achievement that you have inspired someone so much that they have taken the time to nominate you. The awards would not be possible without the people who make those nominations so a big Thank You to you all.
