The Charnwood Sports Awards
What is it?
Charnwood is very fortunate to be blessed with a strong sporting history and community. The Charnwood Sports Awards celebrate the sporting success of individuals and teams throughout the Borough.
The awards are a fantastic way to give recognition to committed athletes, dedicated volunteers who give up their spare time to coach, and those behind the scenes who work tirelessly, often unnoticed, to help clubs run smoothly.
The 2017 Awards focus on the achievements gained from September 2016 to 31st August 2017. The exceptions to these are the Contribution to School Sport Award and the Outstanding Contribution to Sport and Physical Activity Awards which are not restricted to this 12-month period
Why do it?
The Charnwood Sports Awards is now in its 9th year! Last year's event was once again a fantastic evening that brought over 180 people from Charnwood together to celebrate successes and recognise achievements and commitments in sport and physical activity.
Councillor Jonathan Morgan, Charnwood Borough Council's Cabinet member for Community Cohesion is encouraging residents to submit their nominations for the 2017 Charnwood Sports Awards.
He said: "The Sports Awards are a fantastic way to recognise achievements at all levels, from grassroots right through to people competing at an international level. The awards also recognise the efforts of the coaches, administrators and volunteers who support the many sports clubs in Charnwood which make a massive contribution to the community."
