Active Wandsworth Awards 2023

Active Wandsworth Awards 2023

The Active Wandsworth Awards exist to recognise and reward the Wandsworth community for their talent, commitment and dedication in inspiring others to get active and stay active. The Awards have been an annual celebration of Sport and Physical Activity in Wandsworth for the past 26 years. As one of the major highlights in the local sporting calendar the event recognises the achievements of local sports people, clubs and teams and the dedication of local coaches, volunteers and organisations. Over 200 people from around the borough attend the awards evening, alongside the nominees and their guests, we welcomed local councillors and guests from key Borough and London sporting organisations to celebrate our local heroes on Friday 1st March 2024.

This year we introduced a new category; the ‘Connecting Wandsworth Award (sponsored by Enable)’ which aims to recognises a physical activity project that has increased activity levels, improved residents health and wellbeing and strives to break down barriers, make physical activity and sport accessible to all people and communities across Wandsworth.
