On Saturday June 18th, Sue finished coaching the Juniors at her tennis club (West Heaton Tennis Club), changed and drove up the road to Yorkshire, where she was presented with the LTA Regional Award at the Ilkley Trophy.
Every year Ilkley hosts the Ilkley Trophy, which is one of the highlights of the summer grass court season showcasing world-class tennis in both the ATP Challenger and ITF women’s events.
It was such a lovely occasion to be recognised by the LTA and be presented with the Regional Award. Sue even got to step on grass of the centre court, when she joined the other award winners.
Thank you LTA, its been a wonderful occasion.
Running during the month of July, the Grand Slam Challenge is a team tournament where participants will do tennis skills challenges to win points for their team. The challenges can be done at any stage during the month, and are designed to be done anywhere, with any equipment – people can complete them during a session, at home, or down the local park.
To enter a team, please sign up via Mencap’s website: HERE. Once you have signed your team up you will be sent a form to be able to submit your results. You could complete each challenge across four different sessions or base a session around all four – it’s completely up to you! Make sure you also take plenty of snaps as we’d love to see them and you will be able to upload them with your submissions.
All four challenges have been set by our very own tennis mentors (you may recognise the Australian Open mentor) and are available on the webpage or Mencap’s YouTube Channel. You can also see them in the ‘Grand Slam Challenge Cards’ (see images below)
We hope to see as many of you enter as possible! We also have certificates and medals up for grabs so worth having a go!
Good luck and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
