Brighton Table Tennis Club coach wins national award

One of our Sussex Project 500 ambassadors has won a national sporting award.

Teresa Bennett, head of development at Brighton Table Tennis Club, was shortlisted for the Coach of the Year category at this year’s The Pride of Table Tennis Awards.

And we are delighted to say she won!

Teresa said before the awards:

“I feel really humbled to be shortlisted for the coach of the year award. 

“I love coaching and working with all age groups and all different types of people. 

“It’s great to see the progress players make, but more importantly the joy and enrichment table tennis can bring to all.”

After winning she added:

“I am thrilled, it’s such an honour.”

The awards took place as part of the Mark Bates Senior National Championships.

Teresa has been a coach at Brighton Table Tennis Club (BTTC), located in The Fitzherbert’s Centre, Upper Bedford Street, Brighton, for four years.
