Sports Awards 2017 (1)

Local people will again have the chance to nominate deserving individuals or teams in the prestigious annual Eastleigh Sports Awards.

The Eastleigh Sport and Physical Activity Alliance is looking forward to celebrating the success of many talented and dedicated players, coaches, teams, officials and clubs throughout the Borough of Eastleigh during 2017.

The seventh annual event will be held at the Hilton at the Ageas on Thursday 8th February 2018 and is supported by many local organisations sponsoring individual awards, giving the opportunity to recognise some of our local heroes.

Lou Gittens, Chair of Eastleigh SPAA said “It’s a fantastic event to celebrate a wide range of sporting talent in the borough. I would encourage local people to nominate talented sports people from across the borough including volunteers, officials and coaches.”

Video clips of the nominees in action were a highlight for many at last years event, with one guest stating  “The videos for the nominee's were great in bringing their achievements to life. The venue was excellent and the social media engagement was facilitated really well.”

Nomination forms are available on the Council’s website www.eastleigh.gov.uk/sportsawards. If you would like a hard copy of the nomination form, please email sportworks@eastleigh.gov.uk
