What Is It?

Charnwood Sports Awards 2013 Winners & Runners UpCharnwood 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.

It is not just about recognising those who compete, they also celebrate the volunteers who give up their spare time to coach or those that often go unnoticed but work tirelessly behind the scenes to help a club run smoothly.

WHY Do It?

2012's Awards were the 4th annual Sport Awards! It was a great evening that brought the people of Charnwood together to celebrate their successes and recognise their achievements and commitments in sport and physical activity.

Councillor David Snartt, Charnwood Borough Council's Cabinet member for Neighbourhood Services has said:

"The Charnwood Sports Awards provide a brilliant opportunity for the community to recognise and reward local sportsmen and women whose achievements and leadership inspire and motivate others in the name of sport"
