The winners of the Surrey Heath Sports Awards 2019 have been announced.
The Surrey Heath Sports Awards celebrate local talented athletes, coaches, volunteers and organisers for their achievements and commitment over the past year.
Dozens of nominations were received across a wide range of sports, which made the Surrey Heath Sports Council’s job of selecting the winners harder than ever.
The list ranged from national and European champions to devoted volunteer coaches who are the beating heart of their local clubs.
On 21 October at Camberley Theatre those nominated attended a special awards ceremony, alongside invited guests.
The full list of category winners is below – they will now be shortlisted for the county-wide Active Surrey Awards.
Portfolio Holder for Places and Strategy, Cllr Dan Adams, said: “Huge congratulations to all of those nominated for the Surrey Heath Sports Awards, and the worthy winners.
“I am so in awe of the talent we have here in Surrey Heath, from youngsters taking up a new sport, to volunteers that stand on the touchline on a rainy Sunday morning, to the elite athletes and coaches.
“This awards ceremony is an important opportunity to celebrate a great year of sport in the Borough – well done to everyone involved!”
