Ballaghaderreen Tennis Club coach Tim Clarke was recently named Coach of the Year in Connacht in 2021.
According to the Roscommon Herald, Tim received this award from Tennis Coach Ireland in recognition of all the hard work he has put in to developing tennis in the province.
While coaching in four clubs in Connacht, Tim has also somehow found the time to create a network of community clubs, as well as work in outreach programmes, schools tennis and enjoy tennis.
This was a huge achievement and Ballaghaderreen Tennis Club said that it was “incredibly proud of Tim and all his hard work. He has certainly put tennis on the map in Ballaghaderreen.”
In recognition of his achievement Tim received a voucher from Josh McDermott, on behalf of the Ballaghaderreen club.
