Emma Sadula, of CSW Sport, said: “The CSW Sports Awards ceremony is one of the most exciting occasions in the local sporting calendar.
“It is the perfect opportunity for us to celebrate sporting accomplishments and the rising stars of the future as well as recognising the successes of volunteers and unsung heroes who make a sizable contribution to sport.
“We have already crowned countless worthy winners over the last 11 years including our unsung hero of 2013 Sandra Price who was recently awarded an MBE for her services to netball in Coventry.
“We are now eager to reward the next wave of sporting prowess and would like to encourage members of the public to nominate teams and individuals they think would be worthy winners.”
