North East Disability Sports Awards
Each Year Tees Valley Sport, in association with the other North East Active Partnerships and a number of commercial partners, deliver the North East Disability Sports Awards. These awards celebrate the fantastic achievements that our athletes, coaches and clubs have made to disability sport across the region each year. The event is held in February or March each year. This year our winners and runners up have been presented virtually with their awards and we have compiled a short promotional video.
