Nominate your sporting heroes in the 2017 Active Wandsworth Awards

Published: Wednesday 6th December 17

Nominations are now open for the 2017 Active Wandsworth Awards for Sport and Physical Activity.

With 11 separate categories, the awards recognise people who have excelled throughout 2017 or shown an ongoing dedication to sport over a number of years.

Individuals are acknowledged for their achievements through the Sports Person of the Year category, however there are various other categories for those people who make sport happen namely the volunteers, coaches and sports clubs as well as specific Physical Activity projects that get more people participating in sport or activity. Disability Sport and Teams are also recognised at both a community level as well as school teams.

The Active Wandsworth Awards are run by Enable Leisure & Culture, which provides sports services on behalf of Wandsworth Council.

Cabinet member for community services Cllr Jonathan Cook said: “The Active Wandsworth Awards highlight some of the best sporting achievements in the borough and recognise those who make it happen. I’m sure this year’s awards will be no exception to the high standards we have seen in the past, so don’t forget to get your nominations in before the deadline and help recognise those who have made a big contribution to local sport over the last year.”

Peter Freeman, Sport and Physical Activity Manager at Enable, said: “This is a great way to credit talented local sports people for their efforts – I would encourage people to put a name forward.”

The closing date for nominations is January 8, 2018 and can be made online at To find out more please call (020) 8871 8154
