This year the club nominated two of our members for awards at Wokingham Borough Sports Council’s annual awards ceremony.
Caroline Atkinson has been the committee member with responsibility for our Junior and Mini members for longer than most of us can remember. She has also taken on the role of Child Protection Officer and, more recently in support of our Tennismark Status, the Club’s Welfare Officer. She is indeed one of our Unsung Heroes and, although not selected as outright winner on this occasion, we are delighted that she has been awarded a medal to recognise her achievement.
Dom Evan-Hart has been head coach at the club for nearly three years and now runs regular group coaching sessions on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays. He also sits on our club committee to ensure that coaching and player development remain high on our list of priorities. During this time he has become well respected by both his clients and his peers and we are very pleased to announce that he has been chosen to receive the Coach of the Year Award at this year’s ceremony.
Dom was voted first out of the six coaches nominated and he was presented with his trophy by the guest for the evening, Ben Fletcher. Ben was in the GB Judo Team at the Rio Olympics and was once a member of the Pinewood Club.
