Tennis Volunteer of the Year

Congratulations to our Tennis Volunteer of the Year Award winner for 2017/2018, Roisin Kelly!

Roisin has been on our Sport Psychology Pathway this academic year and supported the Men’s 4th team throughout their highly successful 2017/2018 campaign which saw them win both their BUCS league and cup competitions. We’ve been so impressed with Roisin’s unwavering commitment to attending workshops, mentoring meetings, training and matches, and the way in which Roisin’s calm and cheery personality engaged the whole team from the beginning of the year. The feedback from the players (highlights below) regarding Roisin’s impact on their tennis experience speaks volumes of her exceptional contribution, and the Loughborough Tennis staff team is delighted to be recognising her efforts with this award.

On her experience of the sport psychology pathway, Roisin commented:
“The Tennis Psychology Pathway helped me to decide what I want to do with my future. Coming into my Sport and Exercise Psychology Masters I was unsure about where I wanted to go after it but after getting to work with such a great tennis team, incredibly helpful and friendly staff and learning lots from guest speakers I gained a better idea of where I want to go in my future career. The pathway experience was so valuable and I highly recommend being a part of it.”

Following completion of her Masters degree in September, Roisin will embark on her professional training as a trainee sport and exercise psychologist through the British Psychological Society under the supervision of Loughborough Sport & Performance Psychology Lead Dr Karl Steptoe. We wish Roisin all the best for this new chapter!
