Wychavon Sports Development Recognition Awards
The 27th January 2010 was the evening of the Community Development Sports Recognition Awards. The awards recognise those individuals and teams who have shown outstanding achievement or contribution towards sport, talented performances, dedication to coaching or have made a notable contribution towards organising the club.
There are 14 categories and adaptive rowing won two of the awards. Disabled Sports Personality of the Year went to Scott Ballard-Ridley, a leg, trunk and arms rower from Evesham Rowing Club who won the award for his outstanding achievement in rowing since he joined the club in 2008. Scott has gone from strength to strength in 2009, competing at Evesham’s golden mile and British Indoor Rowing Championships and now has plans for 2010.
Mark Dewdney Scott’s coach won Volunteer of the Year for all his dedication and hard work at Evesham Rowing Club, not only coaching Scott but the day to day running of the club and organising the ever successful annual regatta.
All the winners will be entered in to the County Sports Partnership Awards in March 2010 – fingers crossed for our rowers.
