We are very proud to announce that Essex Development Coach of the year Tom Littlewood has been awarded an Active Essex ‘One in a Million’ Award.
Since the first lockdown in March last year, Tom has offered pre-recorded and live tennis coaching sessions to children of all ages and abilities for free. The videos were mainly focused on keeping kids active when time, resources and contact was limited.
The videos were promoted locally at first, but they were so popular and helpful that they were shared widely across the county. The videos have now been accessed by over 450 schools, with hundreds of children taking part. Tom said: “Covid-19 has had a dramatic effect on my Tennis Coaching. I was no longer able to run lessons or holiday camps and I thought this would be a lovely way to give back to the community who have supported me in building up Earls Colne Tennis Club over the past few years.”
Congratulations to Tom from all at Essex Tennis.
