The Blackpool Sports Awards event will recognise, celebrate and reflect on the role that sport plays for so many within our community from grassroots to the elite.
This is a celebratory event giving our local sporting stars young and old a chance to be recognised.
The Fylde coast has had some wonderful sporting success over the past 12 months and this is the time to celebrate them.
The awards will recognise volunteers who have delivered amazing service and opportunities in the community, those that ensure the pitch is ready, that their sport happens and that the club runs efficiently. It will recognise some of our talented young individuals, who are working so hard to achieve their ambitions. It will recognise those coaches who give so much time and dedication to ensure the athletes can be the best they can, regardless if they take part recreationally or at an elite level. We will also recognise some of the outstanding work that sport is doing in our schools, helping to create happy healthy lifestyles too.
This year's event will take place on 5 March 2020 at the prestigious Winter Gardens.
The sports awards looks to recognise people from all sports and below are the links and criteria for each award.
