The 2nd Tshwane Women in Sports Awards is returning, and, on Monday 22nd November, The Tshwane Sports Council (Confederation) hosted the official launch which was held at the HPC (High Performance Centre), at the University of Pretoria.
The Tshwane Women in Sports Awards which will take place on 16 February 2022, will give recognition to women and girls achievers of sport in Tshwane. It will recognise all the hard work and commitment of the athletes participation in sports, on and off the field and more specifically the development of sport on grassroots level as well as management of sport within club and federation structures, not just in Tshwane but South Africa and the globe as a whole.
As we all know the sport world was forced to not only postpone events but cancel many events due to the COVID-19 pandemic which threatened the momentum gained on matters such as gender parity which raised awareness on women’s participation and leadership in sport, equal pay, safeguarding and incentives for women and girls to participate. And these are just some of the reasons why we feel it necessary to uplift our women in sport, ensuring that their importance and value are recognized. And in doing so, TSC publicly announced the official nomination categories where we will see our athletes honoured.
With 20 award categories for consideration and nomination, TSC, ÇOT and GSC will award big achievers within Tshwane for their incredible accomplishments.We, (TSC) are excited to be able to host this prestigious event says Mr Winston Meyer, President of Tshwane Sports Confederation. The women and girls in Tshwane are the force behind the building of resilient communities within in our borders, he continues.
Backed by Spar and the HPC and sanctioned by CoT and GSC, let’s empower them through sports as a powerful tool to challenge the gender stereotypes, to regain ownership of their bodies, rebuild their lives after trauma, further develop skills that are transferable to the work environment and find a safe meaning of purpose with the ability to express their talent and passion freely.
TSC is fiercely committed to Spearheading Sports Excellence. As we continue to build a consistent, solid Confederation and platform to connect with, support and build the sporting community in Tshwane, while celebrating and deepening our relationships with brands such as Spar and the HPC we officially invite nominations from qualifying and eligible athletes, media, sponsors, management and the public to come forward.
