Swanage Tennis Club was honoured to be nominated for Dorset club of the year at The Dorset LTA TENNIS AWARDS on November 22nd 2017. The other clubs nominated were Sherborne and Southbourne. Sam Christmas, Sue Tindale and Helen Knight, co-chairs, attended the awards and although pipped at the post by Sherborne, were delighted by the very positive and encouraging comments made by Richard Henshaw, chair of Dorset LTA. He highly praised the club’s opening event and said the club now has a very good momentum to take forward.
It was also a fitting way for Sue Tindale to mark her retirement from the Sofa. Thank you Sue for all you have done for the club!
It was the culmination of an exciting year in which two new astroturf courts were opened with a special celebrity open day, growing membership, more tennis teams and social events, and of course in the Spring, the club welcomed their new LTA Level 4 coach, Ryan Trickey.
Ryan has made an immediate impact on club activities, working to build a vibrant junior membership, and introducing Cardio Tennis sessions, which are a great way to get fit, improve skills and have fun at the same time. Why not join the growing ranks of the superfit Swans!
