Long Service Award

The Wildmoor Spa Tennis League, formerly known as the South Warwickshire & District Summer Tennis League, presented a Long Service Award to one of their committee members recently.  An engraved Hip Flask was presented by the League Secretary Corin Bishop to their Division Four Organiser Richard Butler of Claverdon Tennis Club for 10 years of service.  

Apart from taking on this league role Richard has also been the Claverdon A Team Secretary/Captain in the league for the past 13 years since taking on that role in 2004.

The League Secretary congratulated Richard who he said thoroughly deserves the award for all the effort and service he has given to both league and club over this period.  The league hope he will continue with his valuable role for Division Four for many years to come.

The League, which covers the South Warwickshire and district areas of the midlands including parts of Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, also stages an inter-league Charity Cup Final between the winners of this league and the Winter League.  It consists of two Men’s doubles pairs per team and has now expanded to record levels with 48 teams competing in six divisions each with 8 teams in each, even having to turn away one late application from a club until next season.  It also runs a Junior Competition containing 16 teams split into four pools.  The Junior competition began in March while the Men’s League begins later in April.
