This is what Domenic had to say about the award…

“It was fantastic to be recognised for this award for the second year in a row. Again there were amazing coaches in this category and are all deserving winners.”

“The past 12 months have been fantastic for High Performance Tennis with lots of new program additions, another venue at Hectorville Tennis Club and more great team members.”

“Again this wouldn’t be possible with support from my family and committees.”

“Thank you to Tennis SA and their amazing team for all their incredible support, encouragement and consideration for this award.”

“Also I would like to thank all the families and participants involved in all of our coaching programs across our two locations at ETKG Tennis Club and Hectorville Tennis Club for all their loyalty, support and creating a great culture and strong community.”
