Members of the City of Karratha sporting community gathered at the Red Earth Arts Precinct on Friday evening to celebrate the achievements of local clubs and codes at the annual City of Karratha Sports Awards.
The Awards acknowledges and celebrate the efforts and achievements of the City’s community sporting groups, recognising volunteers, players, officials and coaches. Nominations are encouraged from all members of the community.
City of Karratha Mayor Peter Long said sporting groups in the City contribute to the liveability of the region and are more than just a place to go to play sport.
“The City of Karratha’s sporting groups continue to thrive due to the commitment and hard work of their members and volunteers. Club sport contributes to the liveability of the region not only by offering opportunities to stay fit and healthy, but also fostering community spirit and pride,” Cr Long said.
