Our borough is fortunate to have a very strong sporting community, which is often demonstrated in competition. The borough council, Local Sports Council and Basingstoke Sports Trust all play a big part in recognising and supporting this at the annual Sports Awards.
The annual Sports Awards are coordinated by the Local Sports Council and are hosted by the Apollo Hotel. The awards ceremony celebrates the achievements of clubs, teams, coaches, officials and individuals involved in sport locally
