The GREATER SUSSEX SPORTS
WALL OF FAME
Comprised of the very best "athletes", "teams" and "builders" of their respective sports, the Greater Sussex Sports Wall of Fame is proudly on display in the entrance hallway of the the Nutrien Civic Centre. Inaugural Inductees were honoured on August 27th, 2013.
Our most sincere congratulations to the families of Johnny Quigg & Ellen Watters on their 2017 induction to the Greater Sussex Sports Wall of Fame. The Selection Committee would like to extend our thanks to everyone who was able to attend the ceremony on a beautiful Wednesday evening. It was a celebration of the many values that athletes all share and the joy and passion for sport. It was great to see our honoured invited guest, excellent speakers as well as the extra special showing of support by the Sussex Swordfish Swim Team in their #4LNH2O T-Shirts.
As our event grows and we strive to do bigger and better things for the Greater Sussex Sports Wall of Fame we must thank our excellent sponsors for this year's event and their continued support.
