Burnley Community Sports Awards have been established to recognise and celebrate the contributions and achievements of local people and communities to sport, physical activity, and community development. The awards pay tribute to those who show dedication at a range of levels or those who work tirelessly to support individuals or community clubs, for the love of the sport or their community.
The prestigious annual awards ceremony takes place each July at the Mechanics Theatre in Burnley.
Nominations for each year’s awards are taken between January -April and are then shortlisted down to three nominees in each of the following categories: Club of the Year, Coach of the Year, Young volunteer of the year, adult volunteer of the year, rising star, School of the year, health Champion, Brian Fenn Community Award, Lifetime achievement award, Service to disability sport. All shortlisted nominees are invited along to the event.
The winners in 5 of the categories go forward to the Lancashire sports awards hosted by Lancashire Sport Partnership.
Burnley Community Sports Awards is made possible through the kind support of local sponsors, and is organised each year by the Get in2 team, in partnership with Burnley Council’s Graphics team, and the Mechanics Theatre.
