Held early November at the Next Generation Clubs, president Stephen Kellock, Peter McAuley, Jane Thompson, Sarah Cunningham and Paul Ruchs left for the awards night in Adelaide to collect their award in the form of a perpetual trophy, plaque and vouchers to the value of $900 for new tennis equipment.
Nominated by Ms Thompson, Mr Kellock said when they received the invite they weren’t going to go.
“But we were informed that it was advisable to go so thought we should put in an effort,” Mr Kellock said.
The club received the award because of its committee members’ effort towards little athletic Hot Shots lessons and promoting tennis to young people.
“Hot Shots was Jane and Sarah’s idea, getting tennis for the juniors; it hadn’t been done for a lot of years around the Keith area so it was good to get it going again this year,” Mr Kellock said.
“It was due to our club effort, involvement with the Hot Shots program, with our involvement with the club having so many helpers on the day, being involved in promoting tennis by young people in general.”
The perpetual Regional Club of the Year award has existed since 1998 and in the past has awarded such towns as Aldgate, Barmera, Whyalla, Stirling and Littlehampton.
