Community Sport & Recreation Awards

Entries are now closed. Many thanks for everyone who has submitted an entry for this year’s Community Sport and Recreation Awards. The standard of entries we received this year was exceptionally high, and the judging panel were impressed with the impact and detail that was demonstrated.

Awards Ceremony

The next step for the fifteen shortlisted entries will be the awards lunch which will take place on 15 March at Edgbaston Stadium. Our President His Royal Highness the Earl of Wessex will present each category winner with their award and prize money. 

Want to be there on the day, celebrating with the shortlisted entries? You can book your tickets to the awards ceremony here.
