The awards have been celebrating grassroots sport and recreation for over twenty years, and we champion grassroots work on a national scale, using examples of best practice to drive positive, societal change.

We promote the work of grassroots clubs on our communications channels, If you run a programme which you would like us to highlight, email or follow us @sportrectweets on Twitter.
