The Aegon British Tennis Awards are a celebration of the people and places that deliver participation and competition. The LTA, Tennis Foundation and Aegon launched the awards in September 2015 to say ‘thank you’.
The Awards are our way of celebrating the 25,000 volunteers who provide their time for free to support our game, increasing opportunities to play, compete and perform.
The Awards recognise great work at county, regional and national level with prizes awarded to the winners at each stage. The national winners will be invited to a star-studded ceremony at The Championships, Wimbledon in July 2017 to recognise their achievements.
The Awards were launched by the LTA President Cathie Sabin, who has championed the opportunity to thank tennis volunteers. “If it wasn’t for the selfless efforts of the people who run the clubs, centres and parks we simply would not be able to offer tennis to everyone who would like to play,” Cathie commented. “I have long believed that everyone who helps to deliver, develop and promote British Tennis should be thanked, acknowledged and rewarded for everything they do on our behalf.”
