Nominate your local sporting hero

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

The Eastleigh Sport and Physical Activity Alliance (SPAA) is looking forward to celebrating the success of many dedicated individuals, players, volunteers, coaches, teams, officials and clubs throughout the Borough of Eastleigh during 2018.

The eighth annual event will be held at the Hilton at the Ageas on Monday 11 February 2019 and is supported by many local businesses and organisations sponsoring individual awards, giving the opportunity to recognise some of our local heroes. New for this year is the ‘School of the Year’ category to celebrate what local schools in the borough are doing to encourage children to be active.

Lou Gittens, Chair of Eastleigh SPAA said

‘It’s a fantastic event to celebrate a wide range of sporting dedication in the borough of Eastleigh. I would encourage local people to nominate volunteers, teams, officials, clubs, coaches and individuals from across the borough.’

Cabinet Lead for Health, Cllr Tonia Craig, said:

‘The Eastleigh Sports Awards are a great celebration of success highlighting the many talented and dedicated individuals, groups and teams that contribute to making so many sports possible in our Borough. This is a fantastic opportunity to put forward an individual or group that makes a real difference for these prestigious awards.’
