At the recent EnergiseMe Hampshire Sports Awards, Lindsey Andrews from Shin Gi Tai Martial Arts in Jays Close won the coveted Hampshire Sports Coach of the Year award against entrants from Football, Sitting Volleyball and Skateboarding.
The Sports Coach of the Year award was sponsored by Energise Coaches who are part of EnergiseMe. There were over 270 nominations from across Hampshire for these prestigious awards split across thirteen categories. Lindsey was the only winner from Basingstoke in 2018.
Congratulations to all the members of our Karate squad from our Basingstoke Karate club, who competed at the 2018 Karate Wales Youth Nationals recently. There was fierce competition across all the disciplines with many competitors and coaches plus a few of the officials getting to grips with the new rules brought in by The World Union of Karate-D0 Federations. The standard and etiquette of competitors, coaches and officials was very good with only one example of poor etiquette seen during the day.
