Southend Activity Awards 2019

Published: Thursday, 18th July 2019

Southend is proud of its active and sporting community. So much so, that we hold the annual Southend Activity Awards, sponsored by the Lions Club of Leigh on Sea.

Nominations have now closed!


Local sport and activity achievements are set to be recognised again this year, as we launch our search for those successes over the past 12 months.


The awards are a way of recognising achievements of local athletes, clubs, schools, and those involved in sport and activity at all levels, who either live in Southend or who attend clubs or schools within the borough. All ages welcome.    

This event is sponsored by the Lions Club of Leigh on Sea - a group committed to community service and charitable fundraising to help local organisations and individuals, epsecially those experiencing challenges. Their motto is "We Serve".

The awards are split into seven categories, including:

  • Community Hero
  • Coach of the Year
  • Club of the Year
  • Olympic Hopeful
  • Paralympic Hopeful
  • Sports Personality of the Year
  • Young Sports Personality of the Year

Each category is up for grabs!


Any problems accessing the online form please contact or call 01702 215410 


The deadline for nominations is Sunday 20th October at 11.59pm. 


In each category there will be a winner and a runner up. Those candidates who are shortlisted for an award will be contacted by Friday 1st November 2019 and invited to the awards ceremony, which will take place during the evening of Wednesday 27th November     


As the categories suggest, the event celebrates and recognises the best community and school sport within the borough, the people who participate, support its provision and invest in its ongoing development.

Those shortlisted for an awrd are also referred to Active Essex, to be considered for the Active Essex Sports Awards.
