Meg named as a Sports Parliamentarian of the Year

Friday, December 7, 2012

Meg Munn MP has been named as a Sport and Recreation Alliance ‘Sports Parliamentarian of the Year for 2012’. She was one of eleven MPs and peers who were celebrated at an awards ceremony at the House of Commons hosted by the Sport and Recreation Alliance.

The award was established by the Alliance to recognise the efforts of those parliamentarians who have worked tirelessly with local people, clubs, organisations and governing bodies to promote and protect the interests of sport and recreation and get it higher up the government agenda.

Meg said:

“I was delighted and honoured to have been nominated by the Lawn Tennis Association. I am working with them, Tennis for Free and the Local Government Association to increase the opportunities for people of all ages and in all areas to play tennis and I am pleased to say that good progress is being made.”

Cathy Byrne, Head of Campaigns at the Lawn Tennis Association, said:

“Meg loves playing tennis regularly, and shows what can be achieved when a personal passion is combined with political acumen and energy.

Olympic gold medallist Duncan Goodhew MBE, who presented the award, said:

“I was extremely impressed by the efforts of all the nominees. Political support for the sport sector is essential to the delivery of a long-term sporting legacy from London 2012, and I hope that passionate and hardworking parliamentarians like Meg will be an inspiration to their colleagues.”

Meg secured a debate with the Sports Minister in Parliament earlier in the year on the future funding of tennis. She has worked closely with Tennis for Free, the Lawn Tennis Association and the Local Government Association, to help ensure more local people across the country have the chance to play tennis on local courts. Meg was nominated by the Lawn Tennis Association for the award in recognition of the support received over the last twelve months.
