Avon Club of the Year


I am very pleased to announce that our club has been named the County winner of the Avon Club of the Year for 2019 by the LTA. We are now eligible to be entered into the LTA South West Region County winners' awards - so we are in with a chance of being a Regional winner as well!

This is a well-deserved recognition not only to you as members but also for all those involved with helping to run our club and making it such a great place to play and enjoy tennis.

This includes not just your committee but all those who organise winter rota, club and social tennis sessions, league team captains and those who organise all the junior teams.

In particular, I would like to single out our tennis manager and head coach, Ben Tilling, his coaching team and the coaching programme, which is such an integral part of the success of the club.

Well done everyone - a great outcome for Backwell Tennis Club - and fingers crossed for success in the Regional awards final!
