Winchester District Sports Awards
Press Release: 07/12/2015
Nominations are now open for the Winchester District Sport & Physical Activity Alliance (SPAA) 2015 Sports Awards.
The Sports Awards are in their seventh year and nominations are being taken across seventeen categories.
Local clubs, organisations and residents are invited to nominate a person who has achieved in their field or who has been recognised for going above and beyond, whether individually or as part of a team.
All nominees must be either: a resident; attending a local establishment; or linked to a sports club in the Winchester District.
The awards are organised by a partnership involving Winchester City Council, Hampshire County Council, Sport Hampshire & IOW, PFP Leisure, Sparsholt College and The University of Winchester.
Pete Leamore, Chair of the Winchester District SPAA, commented: “The sports awards are a fantastic opportunity for our local clubs to nominate those who contribute significantly towards their respective club as well as the athletes who perform exceptionally well throughout the season.
“This event brings together such a wide array of sporting talent across the District which is enough to inspire anyone to participate in sport and physical activity. We are expecting the competition to be very high this year so I would like to urge clubs to nominate as early as possible to avoid disappointment.”
The closing date for entries is Monday 11 January 2016 and the awards will take place on Thursday 4 February 2016.
