The Lawn Tennis Writers' Association was founded in 1947 to further the interests of Lawn Tennis writers in Great Britain in the days when every national and regional newspaper had a full-time staff tennis correspondent.
Nowadays tennis writers span a myriad of disciplines and membership is open to all arms of the media, particularly professional writers, broadcasters and photographers in Great Britain, who cover the sport nationally or internationally.
Membership is divided into three categories: full members (50 maximum), associate members and honorary members. The LTWA is administered by a committee elected each year at the Annual General Meeting by ballot.
Since the late 1950s the LTWA has honoured those who have made a special contribution to British tennis through the presentation of an Annual Award and, from time to time, an International Award to acknowledge outstanding feats.
The Award Ceremony is incorporated into the annual LTWA Award Lunch held in December at the All England Lawn Tennis Club, which is attended by all the key people involved in British tennis.
In 2013 the LTWA established its unique news portal - a one-stop access point for all the tennis news disseminated by the national press.
The LTWA is administered by a committee elected each year at the Annual General Meeting by ballot.Contact Barry Millns, Website Manager Lawn Tennis Writers Association Phone 07710 410 698 Email: email@example.com Website: http://www.ltwa.co.uk/
