Asian Champions Trophy: Dutch hockey coach Eric Wonink and his special connection with India

Dutch Eric Wonink has been coaching since he was 17 years of age. His work has taken him to Germany, Croatia, Belgium and India.

However, it was during his term in India as the National junior women’s team coach (2017-23) that Eric found his calling. India is even more special as his wife Neha, also a hockey coach, is from this part of the world.

Eric has hit the ground running after being appointed by the Sports Development Authority of Tamil Nadu as High-Performance Coach for Hockey on a year’s contract in June. He has started training SDAT coaches, conducted workshops and implored them to watch the Asian Champions Trophy hockey tournament here.
