Bingara Sports Awards nominations open

December 2, 2018

The Bingara Sports Awards for 2018 are open for nominations with categories for Sub Junior, Junior, Senior, Sporting Team, Senior Sportsperson of the Year and Veteran Sportsperson.

  • The Sub-Junior awards are for children who attended a primary school during 2018.
  • The Junior section is generally for older Children (18 years and under as at the 1st Dec 2018).
  • Seniors sporting persons qualification is for any adult not eligible for the Junior sections or the veteran’s sections.
  • The veterans will be eligible if they are 50 years or older as at the 1st Dec 2018.

The committee managed to recover the original Veterans trophy last year and are very keen to promote this section to showcase the many excellent senior competitors who still actively compete in an array of sports across the district.

The most popular section from previous year’s awards was the Services to Sport awards where individuals who work tirelessly to deliver sporting competitions, facilities, fundraising, administration, refereeing, coaching and mentoring can be recognised. Without these precious individuals, sport in the local district, sport could not function.

The individual Bingara Sportsperson of the year can be awarded to the winner from any individual section.  Last Year’s winner, Erica Dixon, was successful after qualifying through the junior categories.

The Awards will be hosted again by the Bingara Sporting Club and a dinner presentation is planned for Friday 22nd February 2019. It was decided to hold the event early in the New Year to avoid the Christmas party frenzy.

Nominations Close at 5.00pm on Friday 7th December. For more information on the awards, selection criteria, rules and eligibility please phone Judy Northcott on 0428241415
