Community Sport and Recreation Awards 2017 Open to UK Nominations18-Apr-2017
The Sport and Recreation Alliance recently announced they are taking nominations from across the UK for their 2017 Community Sport and Recreation Awards.
Is your league, team or club changing lives?
Do you represent the best that sport and recreation groups can offer within the community?
Designed to highlight the breadth of work that is undertaken in the community sport and recreation sector, this awards event from Sport and Recreation Alliance has been running for over 20 years, giving clubs the opportunity to be recognised for
the excellent work they do.
The awards changed their name from the Sports Club of the Year Awards to reflect the variety of members’ activities, and now include new categories to recognise the breadth of work that is done throughout the sport and recreation sector as a whole.
This year, awards and prize money will be presented for the categories of:
- Professional Community Programme of the Year Award – sponsored by The Professional Footballers' Association.
- Added Social Value Award – sponsored by Substance.
- Volunteering Award – sponsored by Join In.
- Mental Health Award – sponsored by Hiscox.
- Innovation Project Award.
The five category winners will each receive £1,000 to help boost their work.
Any club, programme, scheme or initiative representing any of the Sport and Recreation Alliance’s 313 members sports or recreational activities can apply, and the awards are free to enter.
Clubs can make multiple applications in different categories, and all shortlisted applications will be verified with governing bodies.
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony taking place in July 2017 in London.
The deadline for nominations is midnight on 30th April 2017.
