At the Comet we know just how much sport means to you because we live it too.
We know the dedication, time, effort – and let’s face it blood, sweat and tears – each and every one of you put into giving your all for your chosen sport.
As competitors ourselves we know the sacrifices you make to achieve the best you can – for your team, your team-mates, for yourself – to ensure you leave
everything ‘out there’. We know the satisfaction which comes from a hard-fought victory, we know the camaraderie generated in the tired but victorious winners dressing room afterwards.
We also know the hard work volunteers, mums and dads, grandparents and pals put in behind the scenes to ensure everything runs as smoothly as it can off the pitch. individual, a group, a team – who fits the bill then get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
To paraphrase a famous quote: ‘Sport is the most important of least important things’ - and it’s an ethos we live by at CometSport.
Because sport teaches you the value of team-work. Of loyalty, of respect – for yourself, the game, your colleagues and opponents. But most of all sport is about fun and enjoying yourself – and when the time comes celebrating wonderful victories, and people and teams.
