Like all clubs, our volunteers at Goodwood Saints work extremely hard. The Clubs SA awards are a great opportunity for us to put pen to paper and reflect on all we achieve together, and to celebrate the positive impact we have in our community. We found the process of entering easy and straightforward, and really welcomed the chance to celebrate being a finalist and award winner with our incredible volunteers and valued sponsors. The recognition that comes from being an awards finalist buoys our volunteers and helps us to retain our vital sponsors. Thanks Clubs SA for the time and effort to run the awards.

Entry is open to all Clubs SA Members

Being a nominee in any of the 19 categories available in this year's Awards provides a wonderful opportunity to promote your Club, celebrate the work it (and the individuals within it) does for the Community, along with being part of the industry camaraderie and friendly competition at the Annual Gala Dinner.

Each category provides a specific list of questions to best draw out the information our judging panel will need when adjudicating.  These questions are based on information that is easy to access for all Clubs, whilst also providing space and opportunity to 'boast' about the Club that you and your Members are so incredibly proud of.

Take a look at the list of categories below and their descriptions to see which best align with your Club and the work you have undertaken over the last 12 months.

The award process culminated in an amazing dinner at Adelaide Oval where the Ardrossan Bowling Club received the ‘Clubs SA Small Club of the Year Award’ bringing with it wide exposure, including an interview on the ABC Radio and local newspaper, articles in our town magazine and general talk within the community..... Give it a go as we never expected the accolades which we received.
