Congratulations to Charlotte Clarke – Young Person of the Year, Ian Watson – Coach of the Year and Jackie Russell – Volunteer of the Year,  all nominated and winners in the County British Tennis Awards 2018. 

Charlotte and Ian now go on to the Regional Awards – we wish them the best of luck. 

Here are the winners, alongside the Club Members who nominated them for the Awards, and a few of the words that were said about Charlotte and Ian:

“Charlotte has made a significant impact on tennis on the Isle of Man in the past 12 months.

Her successes on court have attracted a good amount of media attention during the year. This was at its peak when she won the Road to Wimbledon event at the All England Club during the summer 2018.”

“There is never a moment on court when Ian isn’t giving it his all, putting all his energy into whoever he is coaching, whether it is an individual lesson or a session with 15 other people.  He makes sure everyone has learnt something and comes off court feeling like they have achieved something.”
