About the award:

The award for Performance Player of the Month has been introduced by our coaching team, to recognise players who go above and beyond on the tennis court and in the gym! The award is not designed to commend tournament results alone. Instead, each month the team will assess all performance players based on a 5-point criteria which considers; work ethic, leadership, professionalism, goal setting and dedication. There will be two winners every month throughout 2019, one from the 9U age group and another from the 10+.
