George Logothetis named Table Tennis Australia’s Coach of the Year


George Logothetis has been named the 2022 Community Coach of the Year by Table Tennis Australia (TTA).

Logothetis is the first ever recipient of the coach award by TTA.

“Congratulations George… you’re a worthy winner,” the TTA said in a Facebook post on Monday.

The Greek Australian coach started his table tennis career in Greece as a player at six years of age. His achievements include playing table tennis for the Greek National team, and he was also crowned Greek champion in the junior age group.

Since then, he has taken up a full time career as a table tennis coach. This role has taken him to three Australian states and territories so far and he wouldn’t have it any other way.

“It’s a challenging job. It’s a nice job. For sure it’s not a 9 to 5 job. So you have to have the passion and drive to create good conditions for your athletes,” Logothetis said in a YouTube video.

“It’s a long journey. But at the end of the day, it’s very rewarding.”

What about his future plans in an ever-changing sport industry? Logothetis said he doesn’t like to plan ahead.

“Everytime I try to imagine where I will be [in the] next five years, most likely I fail. I am moving in the right direction but there are so many challenges that actually you don’t know,” Logothetis said.

“The only thing I know is that I will never stop trying to become a better coach.”
