Freedom Leisure and Sport Worcester celebrate the city's sporting talent by hosting the annual City of Worcester Sport Awards.
Nominations for the 2017 City of Worcester Sport Awards will be coming soon. We have 16 awards to nominate across. Be sure to nominate if you know a team, individual, school, volunteer, coach or club from Worcester who has shown great dedication or excelled in sport since August 2016 to give your local hero(s) the recognition they deserve.
The evening is held in September at the University Arena and is hosted by Olympic legend, Steve Cram CBE. The evening is a wonderful celebration of the City’s sporting talent in grass roots sport. Winners are nominated in the County Sport Awards where winners of specific categories are nominated in the regional BBC Midlands Awards and then the BBC Unsung hero is nominated in the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards.
