Welcome to the London Sport Awards 2021
The London Sport Awards 2021 are here!
After an incredibly difficult and disruptive 2020 and early 2021, the Awards is back to congratulate and thank London’s pandemic heroes from the grassroots physical activity and sport sector for keeping London moving over the past 18 months.
The London Sport Awards returns for its sixth edition to, once again, recognise and celebrate the efforts of volunteers, physical activity projects and sports organisations who have helped so many people in the capital over the last 18 months, not just with their physical health but their mental and social wellbeing too.
The London Sport Awards will be supported, for the second year running, by title sponsor the City of London Corporation with an in-person ceremony set to take place at the stunning Guildhall on Monday 6 December, subject to covid-19 guidance
Thank you to our 2021 Awards category sponsors:
