Nominations for Squash BOP & Squash NZ Awards for 2020 are now open. The categories include volunteer, club & coaches.
Please take the time to nominate someone you think is worthy. Its a great way to thank those important people in your club, and the fact they have been nominated is rewarding enough, even if they don't win.
The volunteer of the year is always a hotly contested category. All of our clubs have some amazing people who sacrifice so much for our sport. Last year's winner was Katikati's Laura Young who does amazing things for her club, and was described as a "true advocate for squash".
This year the coaching awards are split into three new categories to align with Squash NZ's new framework - Foundation, Development and Performance. Last year our new coach of the year was Lauren Clarke, who also went on to win the NZ award. Our club coach of the year was Logan Brewer, who has really committed himself to coaching in the Bay over the past couple of years.
Last year Mount Maunganui Squash Club was given the honour of being our club of the year. The club had a great year on and off the court, with increased membership as well as enhancements within the club.
The other awards that BOP present include Player and Personality of the Year, which are chosen by the Board each season. 2019 player of the year was NZ Junior Champion Glenn Templeton, and personality was Devoy's stalwart manager Karl Brown.
