The Sport Waitākere Excellence Awards have been a prominent fixture on West Auckland’s sporting calendar for 26 years. The awards have brought our sports community together in celebration and most importantly, provided an unrivalled opportunity to honour our outstanding sporting champions in the west.

Regrettably, due to ongoing disruptions from COVID-19, and the far-reaching implications for sporting events, fixtures and activities, we have made the difficult decision not to run the Sporting Excellence Awards this year.

We will be evaluating options to continue the successful legacy of the Sport Waitākere Excellence Awards in the future. As part of this, we will be reaching out to our community to help us evaluate the feasibility of a similar awards programme in the future. We may be in contact in due course and appreciate your input in this process.

Finally, a heartfelt thank you to our valued sponsors and everyone who has contributed to this wonderful event. We are extremely grateful for the important role you have played in celebrating our heroes, volunteers and sporting legends over the last 26 years.
