Bedford Sports Awards

SPECTACULAR EVENING CELEBRATING SPORT IN BEDFORD BOROUGH

An impressive array of local sporting heroes gathered at the Bedford Corn Exchange, on Monday 8 December, to celebrate their success and dedication over the past year at the annual Bedford Sports Awards.

 

Over ninety local nominees were put forward for awards in a number of different categories demonstrating achievements, commitment, team work and passion for a range of different sports.

 

More than 250 audience members watched as winners were announced in eleven different categories. The Adult Sports Personality of the Year went to Alex Edwards – freestyle kayaking and the Junior Sports Personality of the Year went to Bethany Dix – dodgeball and netball. A special commendation was awarded to Alan Johnson for recognition of his long service to rowing.

 

The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “Bedford Borough has a rich sporting heritage, and this year’s Bedford Sports Awards was a fitting celebration of the continued sporting excellence being achieved by locally by many individuals, teams and clubs.  Congratulations to all the winners and nominees. 

 

The commitment and passion of volunteers at sports clubs and groups across the Borough in helping to provide opportunities for all to enjoy sport is remarkable, and it is right that we should thank them all for their efforts on behalf of the community.”

 

The event, which is organised by Bedford Borough Council, is now established as an important date in the local sporting calendar. This year it attracted nominees from dodgeball to dressage, and from blind bowling to basketball.

 

Nominees ranged from local community clubs to international standard performers.
