Pershore Tennis Centre takes home the trophies

PERSHORE Tennis Centre was recognised for its continued commitment to the sport with a number of wins at the Herefordshire & Worcestershire (H&W) Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) annual county awards and league presentations at Worcestershire County Cricket Club.

Head coach Steve Bauer was handed the Disability Programme of the year Award 2019 for his successes on court in encouraging wheelchair users and players with Down’s Syndrome and visual impairment to enjoy tennis.

The club was also recognised for its ladies’ A win in Division One, ladies’ B win in Division 5E and the men’s B victory in Division 6E of the 2018/19 H&W winter league season, as well as the mixed A win in Division One, ladies’ B success in Division 4E and the men’s B victory in Division 6E of the 2019 summer leagues.

In addition, Pershore Petticoats won the Pershore Indoor Tuesday League this year.

The club will now have the opportunity to be recognised at a regional, and perhaps national, level early next year when it goes up against other county winners.

Club chairman and ladies’ A team captain Sarah McCormick said: “It was another great night for Pershore Tennis Centre and we have so much to be proud of, in particular the successes of our men’s, ladies’ and mixed teams and the well-deserved recognition by H&W for Steve Bauer and his disability programmes.”

Bauer added: “I am delighted we have been recognised again this year for making tennis accessible for all.

“We are a very open club and welcome all to take lessons whatever your ability. We pride ourselves on giving everyone a top-class tennis experience.”
