Liston Tennis Club in Williamstown came home winners from Tennis Victoria’s champions dinner at the Pullman Hotel in Albert Park on Monday night, after collecting the award for Most Outstanding Competition at the Victorian Tennis Awards 2018.
Now in its seventh year, the Victorian Tennis Awards include the coveted Most Outstanding Club or Centre as well as awards for Volunteer Achievement, Coaching Excellence, Most Outstanding School, Most Outstanding Tournament and Junior Athlete of the Year.
Liston Tennis Club was awarded Most Outstanding Competition for their Tennis Hot Shots Match Play competition, sending Mildura Lawn Tennis Club and Warrnambool Lawn Tennis Club home empty handed, with the club thanking everyone involved.
“Thanks to Dane Nebel and all our volunteers and parents involved in running this competition. As the first step in our competition pathway; where players learn and enjoy match play tennis for the first time; it forms an integral part of our club,” the club said.
The Victorian Tennis Awards recognise Victoria’s various on and off court success into one big community tennis celebration at the annual champions dinner, honouring worthy contributors to Victorian community tennis.
This year saw the 40th anniversary of the birth of the Victorian Tennis Association (now known as Tennis Victoria), with the organisation celebrating 40 years of Victorian Tennis while awarding the highly coveted Victorian Tennis Awards 2018.
