Flitwick & Ampthill Lawn Tennis Club has been chosen from over 500 clubs to be the Regional Winner of the Club of the Year for Central & East in the 2021 LTA Tennis Awards.
LTA volunteer manager, Alex Beaumont, said:
“The LTA Tennis Awards are our way of thanking and celebrating those who provide such a valuable contribution to tennis from grassroots through to elite level.
“As well as being high in number, the entries were also of an extremely high calibre and our judging panels for all categories were incredibly impressed.
“We are delighted that the tennis community continues to nominate such inspiring individuals, particularly after such a challenging past year, and we are really looking forward to announcing the 2021 winners and celebrating their outstanding achievements at the national ceremony.”
Flitwick and Ampthill lawn tennis club has been at its current location off Windmill Road, Flitwick, Bedfordshire for over forty years. It has eight outdoor tennis courts for members to use all year round. There are four floodlit carpet courts, three macadam courts and one acrylic court.
A club spokesperson said:
“The next stage of our club development is the proposed construction on an indoor tennis facility to enable play whatever the weather conditions.
“Planning permission is currently being sought and, if successful, indoor tennis will be made available to both members and non-members.”
The Flitwick & Ampthill Lawn Tennis Club is holding an open day on Saturday 26 June 2021 offering the opportunity to find out more about the club.
