Carlisle Sports Awards

Published on 12 August 2016

Carlisle Sports Awards

An event celebrating the outstanding talent, commitment and success of Carlisle sportspeople will be held for the fourth year running this autumn.

Following the success of previous events, Carlisle City Council and Carlisle Sports Council is holding the Carlisle Sports Awards on Saturday, 15 October and is asking residents to nominate local sporting stars who have contributed to a local sports club or achieved a high standard in their sport.

The nomination period for the 12 different categories is now open and should refer to sporting excellence between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016. The closing date for nominations is midnight on Monday, 12 September.

Ron Bell, Manager of Carlisle Squash Club and father of last year’s Personality winner Paul Bell said:

“We are pleased the sports awards are taking place again this year, after we have had such a bad year with the floods it is great to recognise what sport has taken place and look forward to the future with our re-vamped gym and squash courts.”

Jim Crowe, Chairman of Carlisle Sports Council, said:

“We are looking forward to celebrating our local sports performances over the past year following on from the outstanding successes regionally and nationally and internationally by our local sports people. Our awards will celebrate the fantastic work volunteers, coaches and players provide for our local clubs and communities. The support of Carlisle City Council and a host of local sponsors has been vital to ensure we acknowledge the quality of local sport and the people who support them in so many ways.”
