Vicki Askew, Sports Development Manager at Suffolk Sport said: “I am pleased to announce the launch of this year’s Suffolk Sports Awards.

“I would encourage all members of the public in Suffolk, who know an individual or a team that you feel deserves to be recognised, to nominate them for an award.

“Without nominations, people who deserve to be acknowledged are kept unknown”.

The awards will also incorporate the inaugural Suffolk Corporate Games during the afternoon, which will see local workplaces pitted against each other in sporting competition and challenges.
