Jonny is an ace
Coach scoops top tennis award
Gareth Ellor, president of Rutherglen Lawn Tennis Club said: “This is the highest possible accolade in British tennis and a staggering achievement for someone so young and for us as a club.
“It shows all of Jonny’s hard work, passion and dedication, together with the support he gets from Rutherglen LTC, are being recognised across the British tennis community. With Jonny leading our oncourt activities, the future of Rutherglen LTC is very bright indeed.”
Rutherglen LTC was just pipped to the British award for club of the year, having earlier been named the best in Scotland.
Ruglonians will be able to avail of all the facilities at Rutherglen Lawn Tennis Club with the recent launch of Tennis Club Saver.
A pilot initiative to make tennis more affordable, it sees a number of clubs across Scotland offer an eight-week membership to all members of the family for £35. Should locals enjoy it, they can sign up for full-time members.
