BASKETBALL ENGLAND AWARDS.

.

This annual programme of awards was created to properly recognise the selfless dedication and efforts of various members and organisations/clubs across the basketball community.

There are 13 awards available within each region, covering all aspects of basketball. After the nomination window has closed, regional winners will be picked for each award. From the regional award winners, three will be shortlisted to receive the national award. All members and organisations can apply and submit nominations for awards. Judgement is made based on quality of applications as opposed to the number of applications. 

Below is the list of the awards that are available for individuals and organisations/clubs to nominate for.

You can also find the button below to submit your nomination (note that the form does not save and must be completed in one visit). You can only nominate one awardee per submission.
