The high numbers of nominations we receive every year indicate the high quality of sport in the Borough. This is a reflection of the many opportunities that exist in Elmbridge to get involved in sport. Now is the time for you to nominate anybody who you feel plays an important role in community sport. I strongly encourage you to get online and put your favourite sports person’s name forward.”

Although it is important to build on local sporting achievements, it is also vital to recognize and celebrate the individuals who make a real difference in the local sporting community, be they coaches, young athletes, teams or volunteers.”
