Shetland named European Community of Sport 2013
by Deborah Leggate -
Shetland's outstanding sporting facilities have received international recognition in the shape of the European Community of Sport award for 2013.
It follows a visit by a team of inspectors from the European Capitals of Sport (ACES) this week. The award will be formally presented at a special ceremony in Brussels on 7th November.
The four-strong team pronounced themselves hugely impressed with the range and standard of facilities available to residents. They were particularly taken with the high quality of activities and services on offer at Clickimin and the other leisure centres operated by Shetland Recreational Trust (SRT).
