Congratulations to Julia Fox on receiving the LTA Aegon Volunteer Tennis Award last night at the Tennis Leicestershire Annual Awards Evening.
Julia was up against 4 other worthy nominees but stood out by a mile for her massive contribution to masterminding the Great Glen tennis court project from start to finish, and for her work on our own committee.
A well deserved award – well done Julia!
Well done to all the juniors representing Kibworth in the summer league competitions.
By winning more matches than any other club, Kibworth is now the Junior Club of the Year in Leicestershire, for the 5th time out of the last 8 years. Many thanks also to the parents involved in driving all round Leicestershire and helping with scorecards and teas!!
