Join us at the Awards

Each year, PLA acknowledges excellence in our industry through its prestigious Awards of Excellence. These annual awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding initiatives and innovative efforts of 'the people behind the places' which promote good use of leisure time for a number of social, environmental and economic benefits to the community. 

Our Awards of Excellence presentation will include a keynote from  Rachael Sporn OAM, Icon of Australian Basketball and Women’s Sport, Operations Manager – AFLW at Port Adelaide Football Club

From shooting hoops in Murrayville, to Operations Manager at Port Adelaide’s AFLW – and everything in between. Rachael Sporn OAM will share reflections on her pathways and career as an elite athlete, and visions for the future.
