Sports Awards Success
At a crowded Winchester Guildhall in November, Paddy won the title of "Senior Volunteer of the Year", for his tireless and highly effective work in master-minding, energising and running South Wonston TT Club's initiative to develop Junior table tennis in the Winchester area.
Successful grant applications have produced Thursday and Friday evening table tennis at Westgate School, with a full complement of new tables and a very encouraging level of attendance by young and older players alike.
Many sports were represented at the Awards Night, including cricket, football, rugby, athletics, triathlon, basketball, cycling, netball and judo, so it was a remarkable win for Paddy, as well as a great boost for our sport.
Paralympian cyclist Darren Kenny OBE was the Special Guest and gave some fascinating insights into what motivates successful sportspeople in general and Paralympians in particular.
