EWGA and EGU are shortlisted for sports award
5th February 2009

The English Women's Golf Association and the English Golf Union have reached the official shortlist for the Sport Industry Awards 2009.

They are among six contenders in the category of best promotion of a sport by a governing body. They will be challenged by the British Horseracing Board, cricket's ECB, basketball's NBA, the FA and the Football League.

The awards organisers describe reaching the shortlist as a stellar achievement. The EWGA and EGU won their place for their National Skills Challenge, the popular initiative which challenges youngsters to learn and improve their golfing skills, while having fun.  

The awards are Europe's largest and most prestigious commercial sport awards. They recognise and reward the best the sport business has to offer in marketing, PR, sponsorship, new media, publishing, advertising and design.

The awards ceremony will take place at a gala dinner in London on Thursday, April 30.
