Greater Manchester and Bury Sports Awards


What are the Bury Sports Awards?

The Bury Sports Awards recognise the incredible achievements and dedication towards physical activity and sport across the borough. The winners are invited to the Greater Manchester Sports Awards where the Greater Manchester champions will be crowned.

Who is recognised at the event?

We aim to recognise the amazing work being done from the voluntary, community and faith sector supporting physical activity and sport in Bury; who's gone above beyond or gone that extra mile, who's had their greatest sporting year to date, who has changed their life for the better because of getting active.

This year we have made some changes to the categories and added two new ones. The categories are:

  • Changing Lifestyle Recognition Award
  • Community Club / Group of the Year
  • Community Initiative Award (New)
  • Young Sports Achiever of the Year
  • Unsung Hero Award
  • Volunteer of the Year
  • Workforce Advocate (New)
  • School Commitment to PE and Sport Award
  • 'I Will If You Will' Sporting Female of the Year

How to nominate an individual, club or school for a Bury Sports Award

Anyone can recognise achievements, commitment and dedication or thank someone for their efforts.

The nominations for the Bury Sports Awards are closed.

When are the awards?

The Bury Sports Awards take place in October at Bury Town Hall each year. The evening includes a three course meal as well as awards and special guests.
