Active Harborough District Sports Awards 2019
The Harborough District Sports Awards are organised by the Local Sports Alliance, Active Harborough District to recognise the great sporting achievements and physical activity projects that are taking place across the District.
From athletes competing at a high level in their sport, to our Active Inspirational Seniors participating in their later years to the tireless volunteers that make sure that the pitch is ready and the administration is done. We also want to celebrate our invaluable coaches and instructors going the extra mile to ensure sessions are worthwhile and enjoyable. All of which contribute to making Harborough a great District for sport and physical activity.
The Sports Awards aim to reward and recognise these achievements, by inviting nominations for a number of categories, culminating in an awards celebration event which will take place on Wednesday 13th November 2019.
This is where we need YOUR help to make sure we get the most deserving nominees entered into the awards categories. Please complete the nomination form below, including the contact details.
