Game, set and match

A number of local clubs and players were honoured in November’s Tennis Shropshire awards, featuring BBC’s Russell Fuller as guest speaker.

Shifnal Tennis Club was named Shropshire’s Club of the Year, with Fiona Edwards from Cound and District Tennis Club receiving the Coach of the Year award. The Volunteer and Young Volunteer of the year were Market Drayton Tennis Club’s Fiona Jones and Matthew Hunt of Bridgnorth Tennis Club respectively. Bob Kerr, Tennis Shropshire’s chair, said, “It was an excellent night and it’s always special to be able to reward clubs and volunteers for the tireless work they put in here in Shropshire.

“Congratulations to everyone who was nominated and also to the Shrewsbury Club for kindly sponsoring the awards dinner.”
