The 2016 Kent Tennis

Awards and Dinner

Sandi Procter, Kent Tennis Board Member, Reports.

The Kent Awards began in 2004 with 7 categories – Player, Coach, Club, School, Volunteer, Team and Outstanding Contribution.  2005 saw the introduction of Junior Player and Junior Leader and in 2011 the Club Award was divided into small (1-4 courts) and large.  In 2015 the LTA created a new British Tennis Awards Scheme and as a result in Kent we added Disability and Community Awards to our collection.

The Awards presented on the evening were for achievements in 2016.  In some categories there were outright winners and in others there was a shortlist of possible winners announced ‘Oscar’ style.

Winners of the categories which are included in British Tennis Awards are nominated for the regional Awards as the next stage of the National Awards.
