With just over one month to go until the London Sport Awards 2019, we’ll be focusing in on each of this year’s Award Categories to give you the inside track on each Award and the groups and people that are in the running.

The Children and Young People Award

The Children and Young People Award was introduced for the first time back at the 2018 London Sport Awards and recognises the outstanding work of individuals and organisations that help to enable more young people to build physically active lifestyles in London.

Children and Young People are London’s future and enabling them to enjoy the benefits of physical activity and sport from a young age is vital to growing the future health of the capital.

Whether it be in school or outside of curriculum, this Award celebrates the initiatives that are having the greatest impact on supporting young people to enjoy the benefits of sport in London.


This year, the Children and Young People Award is presented in association with PlayInnovation

PlayInnovation create innovative sport and play areas for both kids and adults of all ages and abilities. Since launching back in 2010 after their founder, Marco Boi, invented and patented innovative target game Street SnookerTM , their mission has been to break the mould of outdoor gaming.

Over the years they have grown from strength to strength, creating an array of similarly innovative and educational games, as well as designing, supplying and installing some of the most innovative large multi-use games areas (MUGA) and family-inclusive playgrounds on the market.

We are thrilled to be part of the London Sport Awards 2019 and in particular to support the Children and Young People Award.

It is vitally important to encourage young people to be active from an early age and we’ll be delighted to recognise those making an impact in this area at the event.
