Community Sports Awards 2017

SASSOT’s Community Sport Awards 2017 saw some of the county’s finest sporting clubs, coaches, aspiring athletes, projects and volunteers coming together to be honoured. Held at Staffordshire County Council, on 8th November 2017, the event recognised the achievements and commitment of local people in developing local community sport.  Awards were up for grabs in six categories and proved a challenging task for the judging panel in selecting county winners.
