December 1, 2020 | by Matt Halfpenny


Entries for the Community Sport and Recreation Awards 2021 are now open – with cash prizes and national recognition up for grabs.

The awards, hosted by the Sport and Recreation Alliance, showcase the very best projects and initiatives at the grass roots level in the sport and recreation sector.

They are free and simple to enter, and there is a top tips document to help get started with an entry.

There are five categories in which entries are invited, with each winning project picking up a £1,000 prize at a virtual awards ceremony in February.

The five categories are:

  • Youth Development Award
  • Resilience in Adversity Award
  • Mental Health and Wellbeing Award
  • Diversity and Inclusion Award
  • Sustainable Programme Award

Hear first-hand from 2020 winners, Active Life: She’s Ready, about what winning an award has meant to them, and why people should apply, in this video.

Applicants must either be a member of the Sport and Recreation Alliance, be affiliated or work in partnership with a member to be considered for an award.

For more information and to enter, go to the Sport and Recreation Alliance website and complete the relevant form by Monday 21 December.


Sign the petition to #SaveOurSports. We at England Boxing, along with UK Active, the Sport and Recreation Alliance, other national governing bodies of sport, and a host of others in the sports sector are calling for the government to instigate emergency funding in the form of a Sports Recovery Fund to ensure sport clubs, fitness and leisure facilities – the lifeblood of communities across the nation – can remain open and survive the coming difficult months of the Coronavirus Pandemic.
