Who are the finalists as Sussex prepare to crown their sporting heroes?


The awards, organized by Active Sussex, are made up of seven categories celebrating sporting excellence, the dedication of volunteers and the role that sport and physical activity can play in tackling social and health inequalities.

Hundreds of people have been nominated for this year’s awards across Sussex.

Event organizer Ed Bartram said: “The awards, which celebrate individuals and organizations who excel in Sussex sport and physical activity, have seen a high level of nominations; both in quantity and quality.

Defiant Sports of Eastbourne won a Sussex Sport Award in 2020 – and they are shortlisted again

“The judges had the unenviable task of selecting just three nominees for each category, with the winner being crowned at the prestigious annual event on November 24. Congratulations to all who were nominated, but especially to our finalists. »
