Nominate your Dales sporting heroes

sports awards logoWe want you to nominate for special recognition individuals and groups that make a real difference to the sporting life of the Derbyshire Dales.

Nominations are open now in 18 categories for the 2015 Derbyshire Dales District Council Sports Awards - and it's easier than ever to put forward the name of local sporting heroes.

Simply complete the online form or request a paper form by telephoning the District Council's Sports Development Team on 01629 761225.

Chairman of the District Council's Community & Environment Committee, Councillor Jo Wild said:

"This year marks the 10th anniversary of the prestigious awards and they get better every year.

"A nomination could be for a new club or team or for a new facility that has been developed or improved, resulting in more people being able to take part in sport.

"We are happy to receive nominations about people who live in the Derbyshire Dales, compete in the district or attend clubs or schools here. We welcome nominations from all walks of life, sports clubs, parish councils, schools, leagues, coaches, parents and from athletes themselves."

Individuals, clubs and organisations in the Derbyshire Dales that win at district level go forward to the county sports awards.

The closing date for nominations is 25 September 2015 and the shortlisted nominations will be invited to attend an awards evening in Matlock in October.
A selection of the winners will be invited to the Derby Telegraph sports awards at the Roundhouse in Derby on Thursday 12 November.
