The 8th Get Berkshire Active Awards
The Get Berkshire Active Awards celebrate sport and physical activity achievements in Berkshire over the last year. The awards go not only to people who have excelled in sporting achievement over the previous year, but more importantly to people who have made sport possible for others.
This could include coaches, volunteers, employers, teachers/schools or any other organisation that makes sport and physical activity accessible and enjoyable.
The 8th GBA Awards ceremony took place on the 28th February 2020 to celebrate Berkshire's achievements during the year 2019.
We are opening nominations for the 9th GBA Awards on the 1st October 2020. Watch this space for the nomination criteria and the weblink to nominate.
