Drenthe European Community of Sport 2019

The representatives of the 12 municipalities and the provence of Drenthe are rewarded with the title ‘European Community of Sport’ during the ACES Europe Award gala in the European parlement in Brussels. The evaluation committee found in Drenthe the example how sport can be used within the society and came to a positive judgment for Drenthe as Sport Region. De title ‘European Community of Sport 2019’ is a crowning on all activities that are being organised, often with many volunteers, in sport en exercise. This has been noticed, even over the national borders, that makes us very proud.

“Doing is in our nature, the sport stands strong in Drenthe and we want the title, because all those people who are so committed to the sport in Drenthe deserve it.”, Henk Jumelet.

“There is a lot going on in our provence, but modesty is our second nature. This is the moment we have to shine.”, Roger de Groot
