THE Bucks Tennis Forum was a great night for Chesham Bois Lawn Tennis & Squash Club as Karen Flanagan was presented with the Bucks LTA Tennis Award for Club of the Year 2019 by Rosemary Badman, President of Bucks LTA at Aylesbury College.

This award, which recognises contributions to grassroots tennis, was one of 70 outstanding individuals and venues across Great Britain named as regional winners from 1,500 nominations in 10 categories.

Launched in 2015, the LTA Tennis Awards celebrate the thousands of individuals involved in tennis – from the 25,000 volunteers, to the 4,400 coaches and 940 officials.

They also highlight the incredible achievements of 20,000 schools, 2,700 clubs and over 9,700 LTA approved tournaments in helping to grow the sport.

Alex Beaumont, LTA Volunteering Manager said: “Every year we’re blown away by the standard of the applications and the phenomenal achievements they demonstrate in helping to grow the sport.

"The LTA Tennis Awards are an excellent way for us to say thank you to everyone and celebrate that progress.”
