The Gazette and Sportspace are calling for more nominations for this year’s Dacorum Sports Awards as we look to make them the best yet.

The search is on for talented sporting individuals, teams and clubs in Dacorum and there is still plenty of time to get your nominations in by following this link

As well as recognising those that actively participate in local sport, the Dacorum Sports Awards are also an excellent opportunity to reward those who work tirelessly behind the scenes in a coaching, administrative or official role.

The Sportspace sports development team are behind the organisation of the Dacorum Sports Awards and they need local people to get involved to make the awards a success.

Any award ceremony is only as good as the quality of nominations so they are calling on all Dacorum-based clubs, teams and individuals to support the event and send their nominations in.

Rebecca Dukes, Sportspace sports development manager said: “We have a huge amount of sporting talent locally and the awards enable us to acknowledge and highlight this.

“As we prepare for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, the awards serve as a reminder of the fantastic sporting achievements and opportunities in our borough.

“By raising the profile of the awards we hope to improve awareness of sport in Dacorum, and encourage more people to get involved and also more active!”

The local awards come at a time when the focus on sport is at an all-time high following the amazing success of last year’s home-grown Olympics in London.

Sports Clubs in Dacorum are thriving, thanks in main to the dedication of volunteers with a passion for their chosen sport.
