The annual Greater Manchester and Bury sports awards recognise the incredible achievements and dedication towards physical activity and sport in the area.

All ten boroughs of Greater Manchester hold their own yearly ceremony to celebrate the hard work and achievement of those involved in sport in their borough. 

For each borough, the category winners are then put forward for the Greater Manchester sports awards.

Bury sports award nominations

The sports awards intend to celebrate the amazing work being done to support physical activity and sport across the voluntary, community and faith sectors in Bury. The awards aim to identify and acknowledge those who have:

  • gone above beyond
  • gone that extra mile
  • had their greatest sporting year to date
  • changed their life for the better because of getting active.

You can nominate a person, club or school to recognise their achievement, commitment and dedication or to celebrate their efforts.

Bury sports awards nominations are now closed.

Nomination information and applications for the 2023 Bury sports awards will be available soon.

We welcome anyone to post or follow on social media using #BurySportsAwards.
