National award for Ongar Tennis Club coach
Ongar Tennis Club coach Vicky Mumby has won the Aegon Coach of the Month award for October for her work with junior players at Ongar Tennis Club at the Jubilee Park, Ongar.
Vicky has built up a strong junior presence with more than 100 youngsters playing regularly at the Love Lane courts.
Vicky said: "I am incredibly honoured and humbled to win this award. To be recognised for my hard word, dedication and commitment to Ongar really is an amazing feeling and means the world to me.
"I love all aspects of my job whether it's teaching my Tots a basic ground stroke, coaching my performance team or delivering a cardio tennis session, I aim to make each lesson fun!"
Ongar Town Council chairman councillor James Browning said: "The council is delighted that Vicky has been chosen to receive this award which highlights the marvellous work that she is doing with young players at Jubilee Park.
"It has always been the town council's intention to make the Jubilee Park facilities open to as wide a section of the community as possible and it is marvellous that Vicky's partnership with local children has been recognised in such a way."
