IT’S been a busy month for Mooloolaba Ten­nis Club head coach Adon Kronk, claim­ing a bevy of coach­ing awards at both state and na­tional level.

He was re­cently named the best club coach at the Queens­land Ten­nis Awards, now Adon Kronk has nabbed the coun­try’s high­est club coach­ing ac­co­lade.

Last week Kronk won the Coach­ing Ex­cel­lence – Club Award at the 2018 Aus­tralian Ten­nis Awards, the high­est club coach­ing hon­our in the coun­try.

“Win­ning the Queens­land award ear­lier this month was amaz­ing and it was an hon­our just to be named in the top three fi­nal­ists for the coun­try,” he said.

“But to ac­tu­ally win, I couldn’t be­lieve it. It’s such an hon­our.”

Kronk has been at the helm of the Mooloolaba club for three years, us­ing his global coach­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to help grow the club, which picked up Queens­land Club of the Year.

“For the club to have that suc­cess as well, win­ning the Queens­land award and be­ing a fi­nal­ist in the Aus­tralian award, is great and shows how far it’s come in the last few years,” he said.

“We’ve been kick­ing goals and hope­fully we can use this mo­men­tum to con­tinue to ex­pand and im­prove.”
