People across Daventry District are being encouraged to nominate their local sporting heroes for an award.
Run by Everyone Active in partnership with Daventry District Council, the annual Daventry District Sports Awards aim to celebrate the wealth of sporting talent in Daventry District.
People are encouraged to showcase their club, team or school or to recognise local athletes, coaches or volunteers by nominating them for an award.
There are eleven categories recognising the best community club, activity group, team, coach, volunteer, young leader, school, young sportsperson and disabled sportsperson of the year. There is also an award for best overall sportsperson, and a Lifetime Contribution to Sport award.
The awards, which feed into the regional heats of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year, will be presented at a formal evening celebration at Daventry Leisure Centre on Thursday 24 October 2019.
Councillor Alan Hills, Community, Culture and Leisure Portfolio Holder at Daventry District Council, said: “Daventry District boasts a very active sporting scene with some incredibly talented individuals, who are often backed by talented coaches, nurturing clubs and schools, and a huge network of volunteers.
“Our annual Sports Awards aim to highlight everyone’s contribution, and are an excellent opportunity to give recognition to anyone involved in local sport who you feel deserves a public accolade for their achievements. Please get in touch and submit your nominations.”
