Sport and Recreation Alliance annual Awards deadline

The closing date is fast approaching for the Sport and Recreation Alliance annual Community Sport and Recreation Awards for 2017. 

The Community Sport and Recreation Awards demonstrate the vital work that is going on at the grassroots level. From the organisations providing youngsters with a pathway from playgrounds to active adulthood, to the clubs making sure that their helpers and volunteers are supported and encouraged to continually develop, this year's winners will be a perfect advert for how sport enriches lives.

This awards programme has been running for over 20 years and this year's entries close on Sunday 30th April.

The awards are free to enter, the application form is quick and easy to complete and there is £1,000 up for grabs for each category winner. Winners will be announced at the organisation's AGM on 11th July where they will be presented their awards by HRH The Earl of Wessex.

Entries are welcomed from England Athletics affiliated Clubs, RunTogether Groups, Associations or Organisations in any of the 5 categories:

  • Added Social Value
