Sadie Mason MBE, Active Sussex Chief Executive, commented:
“After the challenges that our sector has faced over the past couple of years, celebrating our Sussex Sports Awards in person again was a fantastic experience. We had a tough time judging the nominations this year, and the winners should be very proud to have come out on top of such a high-quality field of nominees. I would like to congratulate all who were nominated in this year’s awards and wish everyone the best of luck for the future.”
