The Sports Forum is also responsible for the annual Sports Awards. Clubs, coaches and family members of sportspeople are given the opportunity to nominate them for these awards.

Nominations for 2024 closed on Monday 11 March 2024.

The Sports Awards are aligned with the town’s Merit Awards within the Annual Town Meeting. This places all of the town’s annual awards under the same banner whilst giving local sports a much wider audience and greater exposure.

You can see the winners for the 2024 Sports Awards in our News section.

These are a range of Financial Awards focused on those either already achieving, or who have the potential to achieve, sporting excellence. Applications open once a year and are available for local residents.

The Sports Excellence Grants for 2024 were shared between two sportspeople: Aiyla Warner and Grace Winchester, both for gymnastics. This funding will enable them to continue progressing in their sport and achieve their goals. You can read more here.
