Avon Tennis Unsung Hero Award Criteria:

This is a special award to acknowledge those people who have contributed to the success of tennis in our County who may not fall within the LTA Nomination criteria but who equally deserve recognition.

The recipients of this award would have made a substantive yet unheralded contribution to tennis in the County that has resulted in a positive impact to their Club, the local Community or the Tennis Environment in which they operate.

They may be –

  • Volunteers who do the thankless jobs behind the scenes
  • Someone who through their hard work and selflessness goes above and beyond what is expected of them, without receiving compensation
  • Individuals or groups whose exceptional efforts have truly made a difference to society

The awards were first launched in 2015 and are in place to celebrate the thousands of people who dedicate their life to supporting the grassroots of the game, whether it’s through recreational competitions or disability programmes.
