Tennis Scotland officials said Montrose had earned the coveted club of the year title, whilst coach Walker’s award was in recognition of his efforts to “continuously grow the active tennis community in the region” through family sessions and social events.

The club has a full competitive and recreational programme on six flood-lit courts and two mini-tennis courts. Players compete in the highest divisions of Tennis Tayside leagues and several junior members compete on the national or university level.

Walker, who played for the club as a junior, runs a variety of coaching programmes, including summer and Easter camps for children, mini tots tennis and doubles coaching for team players as well as social events. He recently added an over-65s mini-tennis programme.

In Tennis Tayside play, the ladies' first team drew 6-6- for the second time in a row, last week's tie being against Wormit and Newport 1. Their only loss is an away defeat against St Andrews, by 7-5.

The second team received a walkover from Anstruther and are 2-1 in Division 2 after beating Forthill the previous week. The third team were rained off last week at Kinross and after a 7-5 loss at Lundin Sports 2 and a 12-0 win over St Andrews 4 are 2-1 in Division 5.

The men's first team beat Broughty Ferry 1 away by 7-5 to improve to a win, a loss and a draw in Division 1.
