The Service to Sport Awards is a flagship event in the Herts Sports Partnership calendar. It represents an opportunity to bring together the dedicated, enthusiastic and life-changing individuals, projects and clubs that make up the sport and physical activity landscape of our county.

On the 19 November 2019, we welcome over 500 guests to celebrate the great work and unwavering commitment volunteers bring to the leisure sector, the innovative ways of keeping our residents active and the life long service many of the workforce has made.

Nominations are now open, so until 30 September, we invite you to tell us who should be filling this year’s seats!

Nominations can be made in the below categories:

Nadine Mehta Unsung Hero
