Service Awards Honor Providers, Examples of Sportsmanship at Banquet

The SCTA Annual Service Awards Banquet recently honored some of Southern California’s most accomplished and dedicated providers, athletes, and individuals who continue to go above and beyond in spreading the game of tennis throughout the region.

Held in February at the L.A. Tennis Center, the annual event acknowledges outstanding achievement in a variety of categories. Among the recipients was Sue Pendo, Director of Tennis at Braemar Country Club who received a Service Award for Net Generation development and programming. Braemar was also awarded the Member Organization of the Year honors.

Multiple annual awards have a long history with the SCTA. The Long Ellis Intercollegiate Award, designated as a reflection of Mr. Long Ellis’ dedication to collegiate tennis competition for many years, was presented to Brigham Young University. A Multicultural Award named after former SCTA official Eugene “Gene” Jung recognized Stan Jefferson, while Community Tennis honored Eduardo Rodriguez as the League Leader of the Year, a new award.

Perhaps the most prestigious awards of the evening, the Evelyn Houseman Junior Sportsmanship Awards, are presented to two junior athletes who best exemplify exemplary conduct on the court throughout their junior careers. This year, Timothy Sah and Jennifer Kerr were recipients.

Other Service Awards included: Randie Lettington (Adult Tennis), First Break Academy (Community Organization), John Thomas (Community Individual), Alexander Shen from UC Riverside (Tennis on Campus), and Steve Weaver (Wheelchair & Adaptive).
