Tafisa awards

TAFISA RECOGNISES THAT THE GROWTH OF THE SPORT FOR ALL MOVEMENT, AND TAFISA ITSELF,
OVER THE LAST HALF CENTURY WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE
WITHOUT SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTIONS FROM INDIVIDUALS
AND ORGANISATIONS ACROSS THE GLOBE.

Awards

To honour those individuals and organizations, TAFISA established its Awards Scheme with categories as follows:
