Congratulations Bryan Volunteer of the Year Award 2017
Congratulations to Albany LTC President – Bryan Sharp – who was recently awarded Volunteer of the Year 2017 in the Isle of Man (County) – British Tennis Awards. Seen here receiving his Award from the IOMLTA Secretary Jackie Russell, along with winners from the recent NedGroup Junior Tournament held at Albany LTC.
Towards the end of last year, all Isle of Man Tennis Clubs were provided with information on how to take part and celebrate outstanding contributions in the communities, in the British Tennis Awards.
Bryan was nominated in the Volunteer Category:
After being a hard working member of Albany LTC for 55 years – coach, referee, tournament organiser, club maintenance officer, and a club captain over those years, plus Club President, Bryan has influenced Albany Tennis Club in so many ways, and at 84 he still does (clearing leaves from the courts, so others can play) and he still plays tennis once a week.
The British Tennis Awards were launched in 2015 with the help of former LTA president Cathie Sabin OBE, this is the first Award to be made on the Isle of Man. Hopefully we will have a few more nominations at the end of this year, for the 2018 Awards!
