Berkswell & Balsall Common Tennis Club’s Harry Malone has received the Men’s ‘Player of the Season’ 2012 title from The Coventry and District Lawn Tennis League.

 

The Committee selected Harry for captaining Berkswell’s second team to promotion – an amazing achievement at just 17 years old. He was presented with the award at the League AGM earlier this month.

 

Jon Baber, Men’s Captain at the long-established club in Meeting House Lane, Balsall Common said:

 

“This accolade is fantastic for Harry and the Club. It is thoroughly deserved and we are delighted his efforts have been recognised. He is a great role model for our younger members”

 

Harry had just turned 17 when he was appointed second team captain. He is a local player who has represented B&BCTC at junior level since the age of five and at senior level since he was 11. Harry is also an important part of the B&BCTC coaching team where he assists in group/individual lessons.
