Pride of Table Tennis Awards and Criteria

Your nomination will put your nominated individual in contention to win a Regional Award.

 

How it works

Pride of Table Tennis works on a two-year cycle. The 2019/20 season is year one of the cycle, when the focus is on the Club/League Volunteer of the Year and Young Volunteer of the Year awards.

Clubs and leagues can select and honour their own volunteers of the year in both categories – and all those honoured will be put forward for the national awards.

The national Volunteer of the Year and Young Volunteer of the Year will be selected by the Pride of Table Tennis judging panel and presented at the Senior Nationals in March, where they will receive a special invitation and recognition over the weekend.

We will also be surprising some of the local winners by choosing them at random to receive special ‘table tennis experiences’ or prizes, such as a weekend away at the Nationals with overnight stay, or the chance to train with England coaches or players.

In the second year of the cycle, starting in the 2020/21 season, local clubs and leagues will again honour their volunteers and young volunteers. There will also be a regional stage of the awards, into which all local nominees will be forwarded, alongside nominations in other key categories.

The national stage of the awards will then feature the full range of Pride of Table Tennis Awards, including those for coaches, officials, clubs, leagues and inclusivity – and of course featuring the Blue Riband Volunteer of the Year and Young Volunteer of the Year.

These will be presented at a gala dinner to be held at the National Conference in the first half of the year.
