A club that was on the brink of folding six years ago has taken out the top gong in the 2020 Sportscover Clubbies Awards!
The Sports Riders Club of Tasmania (SRTC) earned a place in Clubbies history as the first entrant from the island state to nab the BEST CLUB title. The extraordinary turnaround was achieved by a just a handful of dedicated volunteers. The impact of COVID-19 meant the highly anticipated awards luncheon had to be called off, with winners videoing their presentation moment. Here's Chris Price, president of SRTC.
The nationwide search for the most inspiring stories from sport’s grassroots attracted more than 1100 nominations.
Over 30 sports were represented by the 80 finalists, with dragon boating, swimming, football, motorcycling, rugby league, golf and surfing among the trophies. Five states contributed to the winners list but it was NSW which walked away with the biggest haul, taking four of the eight awards on offer.
Up for grabs, a total prize pool worth more than $10,000! The outcome was decided by an expert panel and thousands of online votes.
