London Sport Awards 2019: Nominations now open


Fast becoming a key night in the capital’s sporting calendar, the London Sport Awards are back for a fourth year in 2019 at the home of England Rugby, Twickenham.

The London Sport Awards are the biggest celebration of grassroots sport in the capital, celebrating the great work that makes up the best of grassroots physical activity and sport.

London Sport is delighted to be hosting another fantastic event on 14 March to showcase the incredible work that individuals and organisations are doing to use sport to change people’s lives.

Nominations are now open for our eight award categories which celebrate everyone involved in sport and physical activity across London – whatever their role.

The awards are free to enter with our online form making it quick and simple for people to nominate their success stories which will be judged by an expert panel.

Adrian Klemens, Coach of the Year 2018, said: 

“I felt very honoured and humbled that my fellow coach nominated me for the Award.

“Personally, the win is just as important for me as it is for my family and my fellow coaches. To see the work, I put in get recognised, it gives everyone a life for all the effort and challenges we face.

Nominations close at midnight on 13 January 2019.

Last year, Latin American Multicultural Group’s “LA LIGA” Female Recreational Football League picked up the London Together Award which has been renamed for 2019 to the Sport Unites Award.

Lucy Richards from The Running Charity, a 2018 finalist, said:

“To be recognised in the top tier of programmes operating in as an amazing city as London shows we are doing the right things and making a real impact on the vulnerable communities throughout the city.

“Being shortlisted allowed The Running Charity to shine a light on all of the hard work of our staff and volunteers in supporting homeless and at risk young people across London, to achieve their potential through the power of running.”
