Last chance to nominate your Solihull heroines

Solihull Editorial 20th May, 2014 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016   0

THE OBSERVER has teamed up with the Aegon Classic – the Premier women’s tennis tournament which takes place in Birmingham in June – to find and reward Solihull, Shirley or Arden’s most inspirational women.

Do you know a woman who regularly goes above and beyond for others? Someone who has played a key role in shaping the local community? A friendly face that is always there to offer support? Or even a female who has faced adversity but still remains unbeatable? Well, we want to hear from you.

This is your last chance to nominate the female figures that make Solihull, Shirley or Arden great before Sunday (May 25). The most deserving lady will win an all-expenses paid, VIP trip to the final of the Aegon Classic (Sunday 15th June).

The very female nature of the Aegon Classic means the tournament brings to the Midlands, between June 9 and 15, the world’s top female players – including WTA Top 20 players like Sabine Lisicki, Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic

If you know someone locally who deserves recognition then get in touch by email at [email protected] or write to Aegon Classic c/o Willoughby PR, 43 Calthorpe Road, Birmingham, B1 3EL. The exclusive prize includes transport to and from the Aegon Classic for the winner plus a friend, plus refreshments throughout the day as well as two of the best seats in the house to watch the day’s tennis.

The closing date for entries is 5pm on Sunday (May 25).

Returning to Birmingham’s Edgbaston Priory Club for the 33rd year and now upgraded to a WTA Premier Level event, the Aegon Classic is now one of the top 21 tennis events in the world – offering sporting fans in the Midlands the chance to see some top-rate tennis on their home turf.

A tournament for all levels of tennis fans, tickets start from as little as £15 per person and are available at
