Want to recognise an outstanding individual, club or tennis venue in Hertfordshire? In collaboration with the LTA we are delighted to announce that nominations for the LTA Tennis Awards are now open. So if you know someone who goes above and beyond in promoting and supporting our sport within the county, we would love to see them nominated. The award categories are:
- Lifetime Achievement
- Volunteer of the Year
- Young Person of the Year
- Coach of the Year
- Official of the Year
- Club of the Year
- Communities and Parks Award
- Education Award
- Disability Award

County winners will progress to a regional shortlist where a judging panel will select 70 regional winners from across England, Scotland and Wales. 30 outstanding individuals and venues will then be shortlisted as national finalists and be invited to the LTA Tennis Awards national ceremony in July 2020 where 10 overall winners will be crowned.
The LTA reward and recognise winners at each stage of the process as follows:
County Winners: Certificate and cash or voucher prize of £25
Regional Winners: Tickets to an LTA Major Event and an on-court trophy presentation
National Finalists: Invitation to the LTA Tennis Awards National Ceremony at The Championships, Wimbledon and a pair of Centre Court tickets.
