Free tickets for Mansfield Sports Recognition Awards

Posted onPosted on 28th Oct

People are being urged to get their free tickets for the annual Mansfield Sports Recognition Awards – and nominate sportspeople for an accolade.

The event is held to find the district’s next big sporting stars to follow in the footsteps of local sport heroes, Rebecca Adlington, Ollie Hynd, Sam Hynd, Charlotte Henshaw (pictured winning the top award in 2019), Ben and Tom Birchall, Elliot Clogg, and the many others who have represented Mansfield nationally and internationally, winning world titles and Commonwealth and Olympic medals.

The Armchair Club, with the support of More Leisure Community Trust and the News Journal, are behind the awards that recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements by sportspeople from throughout the community between 1 October 2021 to 30 September 2022.

Nominations are invited for 10 categories: Junior Team of the Year, Junior Sportsperson of the Year, Junior Sports Leader of the Year, Junior Disabled Sportsperson of the Year, Club of the Year, Disabled Sportsperson of the Year, Sportsperson of the Year, Coach of the Year, Team of the Year, and Volunteer of the Year (this also includes referees, officials, administrators etc).

Further information and a nomination form to download are at or call the Armchair Club on 01623 707017. In view of continuing concerns around Covid-19 nominations are only being accepted by e-mail with a scanned or photographed application form and must include a photograph of the nominee, and preferably a 45-second video of the nominee in sporting action.

Nominees must either live (or have lived) or pursue their sport within the district of Mansfield.

Free tickets for the awards night on 5th December at the Civic Quarter, Mansfield, can be obtained here by registering your interest.
