Rushcliffe Sports Awards

The Rushcliffe Sports Awards are an integral part of the sporting calendar in Rushcliffe and a great opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the borough’s sports people.

The Sports Awards aim to mark the achievements, dedication and determination of our athletes and the invaluable contribution of our voluntary coaches, officials and administrators.

The awards were organised in partnership with the Rushcliffe School Sports Partnership and the 2017 awards took place on Wednesday 22 November at The Becket School.
