It’s not just his coaching prowess that makes him stand out. Kale’s dedication also extends to organising and directing tennis tournaments, that has seen him successfully oversees more than 40 tournaments a year at Hume Tennis.
Accepting the award in front of his coaching peers, the sheer pride and joy in Kale’s eyes were palpable. It’s always a significant moment when one’s hard work and dedication are acknowledged by the very community one serves.
