Active Durham Sport & Physical Activity Awards

Nominations are now open for the Active Durham Sport & Physical Activity Awards.

Exceptional work is happening in our communities to support local people of all ages and abilities to access sport and physical activity, and these local events seek to recognise the talent and commitment of individuals, coaches, volunteers, clubs and schools for their contribution over the year. There are 13 categories and we would like to encourage you to nominate.

Anyone can be nominated from across the County provided they fit the criteria. Nominations are submitted to one of four local areas. They will be judged by an independent selection panel and those successfully shortlisted will be invited to attend, with a guest, to a local celebratory awards evening where a winner will be announced for each category. Local event winners will be automatically entered into the next stage to compete against other area winners, within their category, at the County Awards event.
