Knox Sport and Leisure Awards

2017 Knox Sport and Leisure Awards

Guest speaker - Tammy Van Wisse

Knox Sport and Leisure Awards 2017 acknowledge the hard work and dedication of individuals and sporting clubs who contribute to the happiness and wellbeing of the community. The Awards 2017 are an important part of Knox community and reflect the ongoing commitment of our local sporting clubs, volunteers, and young leaders.

Every day hundreds of volunteers work tirelessly to keep clubs running, resulting in the opportunity for people to become active and engaged in the community. These volunteers are the life blood of many organisations, and Knox City Council would like to say thank you and acknowledge the efforts of these fantastic people.

Nominations for the Knox Sport and Leisure Awards 2017 have now closed.
Finalists in each category will be notified prior to the awards ceremony and will have the opportunity to invite friends, relatives and team members to be present at the ceremony. The Awards ceremony will be held on Wednesday 21 June 2017.

Guest Speaker - Tammy Van Wisse

We are proud to have Tammy Van Wisse as our guest speaker at this year's award ceremony.

Tammy is a marathon swimming champion who has set six World Records; swum the English Channel twice (the success rate is only seven percent); is the only person to have swum Bass Strait; and spent three and a half months submerged in the mighty Murray River - just to mention a few of her milestones.
