Sports Awards

Welcome to the Farnham Sports Awards!

The annual Awards are a celebration of local sporting people and sporting achievements. Nominations for this year’s Awards  open on 1st December and close on Monday 15th January. The presentation evening will be held on 5th February at Farnham Rugby Club.

  • Please note that nominees must reside in Farnham and/or be part of a school, organisation or sporting club that is based in the town’s district to be eligible
  • Achievements must be between the dates of January to December [except for the Service to Sport category]. Entries are open each year from 1st December and the deadline for entries is midnight on 15th January
  • When completing the application, the nominee[s] should try to meet as many of the listed ‘specific criteria’ as possible because all nominations will be judged against this
  • As part of the sports council’s commitment to working in partnership with others, there will be two discretionary awards made each year for outstanding achievement – the Mayor of Waverley Award and the Mayor of Farnham Award
  • Farnham Sports Council welcomes nominations from all parts of the Farnham sporting family and let us know if you have any queries – but please nominate!

  1. The name, email address and [just if you know it] the contact number of the person [or club/team etc] being nominated – and please can you mention their sport/club
  2. The name, email address and good contact number of the person making the nomination [and your connection with the nominee if relevant]
  3. Outline in anywhere between 100-300 words how you think the nominee meets the requirements against the listed criteria. It’s the quality of the nomination [not necessarily the word count] that matters. If you want to include a relevant photo [it’s not essential] that’s fine. Good luck!
