LUSU honoured in LTA National Awards for the second time in three years.
Monday 27th June Wimbledon started; a 2 week frenzy of tennis, with tennis on the BBC and the park courts filled by the Rafa Nadal, Simona Halep, Alfie Hewitt and Lucy Shucker wannabees. It also started a great week for Lou and Sue who, on Monday had the pleasure of attending Wimbledon's centre court, hosted by the LTA in recognition of winning the LTA Disability Award 2020 (a delayed event due to Covid).
The following day we were invited to receive the National LTA Disability Award at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton. The day started with an early breakfast, followed by an award ceremony hosted by Leon Smith (GB Davis Cup Captain) and David Rawlinson (LTA President). Scott Lloyd (LTA CEO) addressed the award winners and spoke of the LTA’s strategy ‘Tennis Opened Up’. We met and joined 16 other award winners recognised for their work in a variety of areas of tennis.
“We are especially delighted to have won the award from a strong pool of nominations…it’s very rare anyone ever wins a national award twice (and never twice in three years). We are over the moon; it’s a huge endorsement of the work we do’
It was especially lovely to share this day with Grace, who had received the LTA’s President Highly Commended Award.
Following the presentation we had a tour of the National Tennis Centre, a chance to watch Gordon Reid (Wheelchair No 4 player) train and then we travelled down the road to SW19, to watch the tennis at Wimbledon. Again, to our delight, we were treated to centre court tickets and a fabulous day of tennis
A huge thank you goes to everybody who has joined us along the way to help make us who we are and to the LTA for their continued support.
