Avatar Greenhouse Sports

Launched in 2015, the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) awards acknowledge the thousands of individuals involved in tennis across the UK – from 25,000 volunteers, to the 4400 coaches and nearly 1000 officials. The awards celebrate the extraordinary contribution of the individuals and venues that help to open the sport up, bringing new fans and players to the game. Over 1500 nominations were received for this year’s awards, and national winners were crowned on 2 July at The Championships, Wimbledon.

We’re so proud of our coach Jamie Faint who was awarded the National Education Award for his work on the Greenhouse Sports tennis programme at Clapton Girls Academy.

"Winning this award means that the programme has been recognised for all the hard work the girls put in consistently, no matter the weather conditions or circumstance. They never put a barrier in front of their personal development both on and off the court. I am also delighted for Greenhouse and Clapton Girls' Academy who both drive high standards for the young people they work with and as the coach of this programme I am immensely proud of everything we do, the standards we set and the strong mentalities and players we grow."

- Jamie Faint, Tennis Head Coach
“Congratulations to all of the nominees and winners of this year’s LTA Tennis Awards. As the governing body for tennis, we can’t achieve our vision of opening up the sport without their support, so I would like to extend my thanks to each and every one of them for all that they do."

- Scott Lloyd, CEO of the LTA
