CITY residents are being urged to come forward and nominate individuals and teams who have excelled in sport over the last year.

The City of Worcester Sport Awards are delivered in partnership with Freedom Leisure Active Communities and Sport Worcester and supported by Worcester City Council.

At the 16th annual awards evening, at the University of Worcester Arena on September 12, long-standing supporter Steve Cram MBE will host 120 sporting VIPs, award nominees, clubs, businesses and sponsors.

Those honoured will include local sporting heroes, high achievers and ambassadors with 14 sponsored award categories including support from main event backer Heart of Worcestershire College.

Categories are designed to recognise achievements of sporting participants, schools, volunteers, coaches, clubs, teams and organisations, and this year’s full list of award categories include:

Matthew Rogers, Freedom Leisure active communities manager, said: “These awards are the highlight of the city’s sporting calendar and we want to reach out and remind local sports organisations, schools, clubs and athletes to nominate their worthy students, coaches and teams for these wonderful awards.

“So, if you know a volunteer, coach, club, team or individual from Worcester who has shown great dedication since August 2018 then show them the recognition they deserve by nominating.

“These awards really are a celebration of the city’s talent in grass roots sport, and one we are extremely proud to produce”.

The deadline for nominations is midday on Sunday, August 4.
