Waterford Sports Partnership acknowledged at Mayoral Reception

The Waterford Sport Partnership Team was very proud and honored to be acknowledged last Thursday night by the Mayor of Waterford City and County Cllr. James Tobin at a Mayoral Reception in City Hall.


We were delighted to be joined on the night by Board members, past and present, as well as some of our great working partners and community representatives to celebrate the Pride of Place Award which we won in November 2014 for the ‘Community Health – Physical Activity Cities Category’. 

The Mayor said that ‘ Since inception in 2002, Waterford Sports Partnership has provided a leadership role for the co-ordination, development and delivery of sport and physical activity opportunities in Waterford. They achieve this through the provision of information and support, facilitation of education and training opportunities and supporting the development of programmes and events that encourage participation in physical activity particularly targeting lower participating groups such as people with a disability, women, youth at risk and older adults’.
