After being awarded in 2020, this is now the fourth consecutive year that Domenic has won the award and the title of South Australian Coach of the Year for Coaching Excellence – Club.

The Tennis SA Awards night was held on Saturday May 1st at the InterContinental Adelaide Grand Ballroom in front of 320 attendees. This event showcases and celebrates all the outstanding achievements of South Australia’s players, coaches, clubs, communities, volunteers and officials over the past 12 months.

This is what Domenic had to say about the award…

“I’m very grateful and humbled to win this award for the fourth year in a row. All the other nominated coaches in this category are all deserving winners as well.”

“The past 12 months have presented plenty of challenges with COVID-19 and the current redevelopment of ETKG Tennis Club. As a team, we have successfully navigated our way through an ever changing environment, and come out the other side with some fantastic success.”

“None of this would have been possible without the support from my family, committees, parents, players and the community.”

“Thank you to the amazing team at Tennis SA for all their incredible support and communication during a very challenging 2020.”

“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 multicultural and inclusive environment.”

“Our philosophy of “committed to excellence and focused on development” is testament to the incredible coaching team at High Performance Tennis who consistently deliver passion, commitment and engagement every day to all the participants.”
