Introducing the NTU Sport Excellence Awards 2022

We are thrilled to announce the NTU Sport Excellence Awards for 2022. This prestigious event will present athletes with awards to reward their achievements and contributions to their sport at Nottingham Trent University. These awards see the introduction of NTU Sport colours and two individual awards, Volunteer of the Year and Sportsperson of the Year. All nominations will be assessed by a panel of staff from NTU Sport and NTSU and those who are to be given an award, will be notified of this directly.

Please note, meeting criteria for an award is not a guarantee that an award will be made. The panel will also assess an individuals’ contribution and impact on their club, NTU Sport programmes and the wider university. Nominations can be made by anyone and you can nominate yourself if you wish. A nominee can also be put forward for multiple awards, using the form at the link. 

Nominations are now closed.
