Do you know someone who does a lot for sport?

Maybe you’re a member of a local community sporting team or club – or maybe you take your child to one.

If so, it’s likely you know someone who goes above in beyond to keep that group going – whether it’s through putting the hours in during training or doing all they can to ensure the upkeep of grounds and equipment.

Or are you a coach or trainer who’s seen one of your athletes smash barriers and train hard in order to achieve amazing results?


Either way, we want to hear from you.

The Wrexham County Borough Council Sports Awards 2018 supported by Active Wrexham,will take place on Friday, February 23, 2018.

Nominations open November 1, and we want to hear from individuals, sports clubs, schools and volunteers.

We’re keen to hear from as many people as possible to make sure we recognise and honour all those athletes, coaches and volunteers doing their best to make Wrexham a centre of sporting excellence.


The categories are:

  • Junior Sports Personality of the Year
  • Sports Personality of the Year
  • Service to Sport Award
  • Coach of the Year
  • Disability Sports Personality of the Year
  • Volunteer of the Year
  • Organisation of the Year
  • NERS Achievement in Health Award

The closing date for nominations is Friday, December 15.

Cllr Paul Rogers, Lead Member for Youth Services and Anti-Poverty, with responsibility for Sport and Leisure, said: “This is an absolute must for anyone who knows someone who’s put the hours in or trained hard at their local sports club.

“There are scores of people out there helping to consistently improve local sports in Wrexham, and a lot of them are unsung heroes who don’t get the credit they deserve.

“The Sports Awards aims to give them that recognition, but we need to hear about them first – so I’d urge anyone who knows of someone who would merit that recognition to get in touch and nominate them.”
