And the Cheshire LTA Club of the Year is…
Brabyns tennis club in Marple!
Brabyns LTC in Marple has scooped Cheshire LTA Club of the Year 2022. At the County Awards Evening in Chester, attended by over 300 people, Brabyns was named as “an outstanding example of a strong committee and a highly motivated coaching team attracting new members with innovative activities” and that the club “stood out” amongst nominations.
Captain Andy Baggott was thrilled. “Brabyns is extremely honoured to receive this prestigious award. It shows the commitment, drive and vision of our committee, all volunteers, and our passionate coaching team. Thank you to everyone involved in growing and supporting our club.”
President Derek Waterfield said: “competition was strong, there were so many outstanding clubs shortlisted around the County but the recent development of facilities at Brabyns and the incredible standard and variety of coaching offered at the club stood us in great stead”.
There must be something in the air at Brabyns LTC! Head Coach Mark Beaver was awarded Cheshire Development Coach of the Year in 2021 and President (and past captain) Derek Waterfield was awarded Cheshire LTA Lifetime Achievement award in 2019 followed by a national LTA Meritorious Lifetime Award for services to tennis.

You don’t have to be a member - we have a community pay and play on two courts.
