Over the last decade we have crowned countless worthy winners particularly in the world of amateur and community sport, honouring those who have made a sizable contribution to sport in the region.

“The CSW Sports Awards provide an opportunity to celebrate the fantastic achievements of sporting stars across Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire, but it is not just about recognising the elite performers, but also the successes and achievements of volunteers and unsung heroes at grassroots level.

“We would like to encourage members of the public to nominate teams and individuals they feel should be rewarded for their sporting achievements – at an awards ceremony that promises to be one of the highlights of the year.”
