Both Lindsay and Greg have given over 20 years’ service to volleyball in the Poole-Bournemouth area. Rather than decreasing with time, it seems to be increasing.

2024 Contribution to SW Volleyball – Camille Kok

Camille has been an instrumental part of the University of Bath volleyball club for the past 3 years, particularly over the past two years where she has both been the club’s treasurer and then secretary. She is the first point of contact for anyone in the club to make things happen, from court bookings to helping with invoicing, to even helping in the organisation of numerous club events that have proved vital to the club’s growth and development – always with a smile on her face and a warm tone which brightens everyone’s day.
