Sports Awards 2012: Let’s celebrate sport in Calderdale

editorial image

In 2009 the Evening Courier launched the very first Sports Awards for Calderdale.

The awards continued to grow and develop in 2010 and attracted nominees across a wide range of sports with local clubs, teams and sportsmen and women competing for the top honours.

A packed audience attended the glittering ceremony at the Victoria Theatre in July last year and the feedback received has been tremendous. The audience loved the evening, which provided a mix of laughter, entertainment and one or two tearful moments on the way.

The Awards are now established as an annual event and we are pleased to announce that the 2012 Calderdale Sports Awards will take place on Thursday November 1st 2012 at “The Venue” Bowers Mill, Barkisland.

The Venue has very kindly agreed to be joint main sponsors of the event along with The Reactiv Group of Elland.

Both Reactiv and “The Venue” have close links with local amateur and professional sport in the area and are committed to supporting Calderdale Sport.

We expect over 400 people to attend the ceremony this year, with free entry for all shortlisted nominees and free food kindly provided by “The Venue”

Following their brilliant performance last year the awards will once again be hosted and presented by top comedian and former Halifax RLFC player Lea Roberts along with Presenter and Compare Pete Emmett.
