City of Mandurah Sports Awards: nominations open in range of categories

THE search is on for local sporting successes – sports people, clubs or those behind the scenes – ahead of the second annual City of Mandurah Sports Awards in November.

The awards honour local individuals, clubs and teams who have achieved sporting success or have made a significant contribution to sport and recreation in Mandurah.

The eight awards categories are Sportsperson of the Year, Senior Sportsperson of the Year, Junior Sportsperson of the Year, Sportsperson of the Year with Disability, Club of the Year, Team of the Year, Volunteer of the Year – Male, and Volunteer of the Year – Female.

The winners will be selected by a panel of judges and announced at a special ceremony on November 9 at the Rushton Park Sports Facility.

Mayor Marina Vergone said the City of Mandurah Sports Awards were a great opportunity to recognise and honour sports enthusiasts in the community as well as thank sport and recreation clubs for their contributions.

“There are thousands of people in our community who are passionate about local sports and this is a great chance to highlight their dedication and thank them for their valuable contribution,” she said.

“Whether it’s a local player, a volunteer, coach or sporting club member, we’d like to see a large range of nominees represented across all sports in the awards.”
