On Monday 17th September 2018, 4 members of Linkside Tennis Club attended The Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Awards Ceremony 2018, which was held at The Queens Theatre, Hornchurch.
The ceremony celebrated the achievement of young people and Leader Award winners in the region. Three junior members, Abby McKinlay, Ethan Quinn and Joe Quinn all received awards for their positive contribution to the club, their willingness to get involved and make an effort to give to others, These awards are a recognition initiative which enable organisations across London and Essex to celebrate the achievements of their young people. Angela Shea was presented with a Leader Award for her ability to encourage and motivate young people (3-18 years) and for her communication with the parents, over the previous 4 years. The awards were presented by Mark Richardson, a former GB 400m runner and Olympic Gold and Silver Medallist. It was a lovely evening and a good time was had by all!
