Winner: Jim Kenny
Jim has an outstanding level of dedication to table tennis – spending most weekends assisting at events all over the country. He acts as a Tournament Organiser (TO4) for a number of Table Tennis England events, including being the lead organiser for Women’s British League and also assisting with the Junior British League and Veterans’ British League, and referees and umpires for a multitude of clubs and leagues up and down the country. His expertise as a Field of Play Manager is invaluable to the Competitions and Events department.
Speaking after winning the award, he said: “I’m honoured to get this award. Without the other people I work with, it wouldn’t be the same. We need more volunteers to come forward, especially at National events. You get to see the elite athletes close up.”
