About the London Sport Awards
The London Sport Awards is our showpiece event for community physical activity and sport, recognising the best of the best of grassroots physical activity and sport in the capital.
The first London Sport Awards took place in January 2016 at Lord’s Cricket Ground and has since been held at prestigious locations including the indigo at the o2, Wembley Stadium, Twickenham and the Guildhall.
Each year, a collection of incredible individuals and groups are recognised for their outstanding work in helping Londoners to be more physically active.
The London Sport Awards recognises everyone from clubs and volunteers to those making an impact on the capital’s workforce, children and young people and those harnessing the power of elite sport.
Every single winner of a London Sport Award is celebrated with a spot in our illustrious Hall of Fame which can be found here.
