Nominations have opened ahead of the Isle of Wight Sports Achievement Awards 2023, which shine a light on both our committed sports people and the volunteers who keep the clubs running.

The annual event recognises outstanding achievements and service. Competition is fierce and the winners never fail to impress.

Organisers from the Isle of Wight Sports Foundation said: " We would like to see as many sports and clubs as possible represented in the nominations. 

"Putting forward a nomination is acknowledging in public, the success that a member or team has achieved in 2023, or the contribution that a volunteer or officer has made to the progress of the club."
