The summer of sport has officially begun and there’s much to look forward to. The FIFA Women’s World Cup kicks off in France in June, Wimbledon returns in July and England will be vying for victory in the Cricket World Cup starts imminently.


Excitement for the latter can be felt across the city as Nottingham prepares to host five fixtures, commencing with West Indies V Pakistan at Trent Bridge at the end of this month.


With sporting morale evidently high, there is no better time to launch the annual award ceremony which recognises the achievements of the local sporting community.


The Nottingham Post Sports Awards are a highly anticipated sporting affair and will unfold on Thursday 31st October at the East Midlands Conference Centre.


Nominations for the event are now open with those looking to enter able to nominate themselves, or on behalf of someone, in 15 specially selected categories.

The award ceremony itself will give hardworking sportspeople the chance to take a break from training and indulge in some self-celebration. Organisers are already busy working behind the scenes to ensure the evening is one winners and finalists won’t forget.


Olympic great, Gail Emms MBE will resonate well with the evening’s audience as host, a role she will share with TV personality Mark Dolan on the night. The night will also feature a Champagne reception, three course dinner and fundraising games all in aid of Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.
