Annual Sports Awards

We are proud to host the only event of its kind in Aberdeenshire showcasing the best of the area’s sporting talent in individual, club and team success but also the hard work and dedication of the athletes, coaches and volunteers who help deliver club sport here in the northeast.

We are absolutely delighted to welcome RenQuip as our Headline sponsor for this years event.

The standard of nominations is always quite staggering, with many National, European and World champions in the mix.  There are always new athletes shining through and new sports being highlighted. All very encouraging for sport in the area.

With the loyal support of our various sponsors the event itself has become a 250+ guest sell out.

We look forward to hosting once again Friday 15th March 2024 @ Thainstone Exchange, Inverurie
