Dundee Sports Awards 22-23 Short-Listed Nominees Announced

Leisure & Culture Dundee has announced the shortlisted nominees for the 22/23 Dundee Sports Awards, which will celebrate the success of sporting clubs and individuals in Dundee. Previously Leisure & Culture Dundee has held two separate awards evenings, one to celebrate school sport and another to celebrate community and performance sport. For the first time, tribute will be paid to the success of our elite and community sports clubs, schools and athletes on the same evening, recognising the work that is taking place to provide sporting opportunities to more people in schools and communities across Dundee.

Judy Dobbie, Managing Director of Leisure & Culture Dundee, said, 

“We are delighted to announce the short-listed nominees for the Dundee Sports Awards 22-23. The nominations were of a very high standard and I know the judging panel had to make some really tough decisions. We have some exceptional talent and hard work being undertaken in the city and the dedication to sport in Dundee is an inspiration to us all. Congratulations to everyone who has been shortlisted, we now can’t wait for the awards ceremony to take place.”

The Gym Rental Company will sponsor the awards ceremony taking place on Saturday, May 20, 2023, at the Apex Hotel in Dundee.
