Dis­trict Sports Awards nom­i­na­tions are now open un­til Fri­day, Septem­ber 23.

Each Waikato dis­trict will have its own awards event with cat­e­gory win­ners go­ing for­ward to be con­sid­ered for the pres­ti­gious Brian Perry Waikato Re­gional Sports Awards, held on Thurs­day, Jan­uary 26, 2017.

Sport Waikato gen­eral man­ager Mike Maguire said this awards sea­son came with a fo­cus around our Olympic ath­letes as well as an­other suc­cess­ful sport­ing sea­son for the Waikato re­gion.

‘‘We have lots to cel­e­brate, be­ing an Olympic year it cre­ates more in­ter­est in sport – it re­minds us to recog­nise sport­ing tal­ent and vol­un­teers within our re­gion,’’ Maguire said.
