2013 Cornwall Sports Awards - The Winners!

Date: 8 Nov 2013

The 2013 Cornwall Sports Awards invited our many unsung sporting heroes to take centre stage thanking them for helping to bring the Olympic legacy to life.

The annual event, held at The Headland Hotel in Newquay on Friday 8th November, welcomed over 200 of Cornwall’s dedicated volunteer sports coaches, officials, clubs, organisations and young leaders.

They were joined by special guests Chris Opie, Cornish born British cyclist with Team UK Youth and Robbie Hampshaw, Special Olympic Gold medallist in tennis who lives in Cornwall.

Organised by the Cornwall Sports Partnership, the event is now in its eighth year of celebrating and paying tribute to the many volunteers from across the duchy who dedicate their time and efforts to supporting our strong sports community and inspiring the next generation. 

Cornwall Sports Award organiser, Natasha Howard of the Cornwall Sports Partnership, says “ We are extremely proud to organise this event which recognises and rewards the many volunteers who give their time to inspire people to get involved in sport.  We encourage them to continue their great work creating a legacy of increased participation and enjoyment of sport throughout Cornwall.  We would also like to say a big thank you to all those who took the time to nominate, without which these awards could not take place”.
