Jonny scoops yet another Award!

Huge congratulations to our Head Coach Jonny for winning yet another award – this time the sportscotland COV (Coaching, Officiating & Volunteering) “Young Coach of the Year Award”. This is richly deserved for all his hard work and dedication and recognises the amazing work he’s doing with his awesome team of Ced & JJ! This stands apart from all of Jonny’s other recent awards in that it recognises his achievements within the context of Scottish sport as a whole, not just tennis. This makes it even more impressive!

What an honour for our Club President Gareth Ellor to be presented with the West Of Scotland Tennis 2017 Volunteer of the Year Award from GB Davis Cup Captain Leon Smith.

A real team effort!
