OK – so things are a bit different this year – sadly – but that does not mean to say that tennis has shut down in Sussex. Far from it. Some clubs are thriving – some reporting record numbers of membership. And that all means work for many people. Coaches. Volunteers. The running of competitions. Players. And the clubs themselves. So this is your chance to vote for the person or the club who you think deserves special mention. Someone or some club who has gone above and beyond their normal duties. Last Year Ben Reeves won Performance Coach of the year, Brian Fidler won the outstanding volunteer Award, Tennis in the Parks picked up the Community Award both in Sussex and the South East and Billingshurst won the Club of the year. But who will win this year. Your vote will decide.

Go on – make someone proud.
