Active Lives Community Awards


The Active Lives Community Awards will recognise, celebrate and reflect on the role that sport plays for so many within our community from grassroots to the elite. The past 2 years have been difficult for most, getting told to stay indoors before the introduction of bubbles and daily exercise. Despite many challenges sport and physical activity has bounced back and remains a huge part of many people’s lives and that’s largely down to the fantastic teams, individuals, schools, colleges, and volunteers across Blackpool who have continued to ensure that physical activity has flourished over the past 12 months. This is a celebratory event giving our local stars young and old a chance to be recognised.

This year’s event has now been re-scheduled to Wednesday 28 September 2022 will take place at the prestigious Winter Gardens. If you have any queries about the change in date or your ticket please contact

The Awards looks to recognise people from all areas of sport and physical activity and below are the links and criteria for each award.

Nominations are now closed, thank you to everyone who has sent in a nomination.
