Top table tennis award winner
Carlton le Willows Academy has won a top sporting accolade in Table Tennis England’s annual Pride of Table Tennis Awards.
The Partner of the Year Award was presented to headteacher Craig Weaver at a ceremony in London on Saturday night (3rd March) when volunteers, officials, coaches and personalities from across the UK were honoured for their work.
After accepting the award, Mr Weaver said he was delighted and honoured for the school to have been nominated among so many worthy winners, dubbed by award organisers as the “heartbeat” of the sport.
Table Tennis England Talent Development Coach Chris Turner, pictured with Mr Weaver, said: “Carlton le Willows has been a fantastic partner in what we are trying to achieve for Nottingham, which is to provide table tennis opportunities for the community as well as support young players, helping them discover what they are capable of and play at whatever level they choose – whether this is at local level or on the international stage.
“We are very thankful to have found a partner in Carlton le Willows, who recognise what a powerful sport table tennis can be. Long may the partnership continue and thrive.”
