Energise Me Awards
Winners were announced for the Energise Me Awards 2017, proudly supported by Irwin Mitchell.
Rewarding achievement in sport
Every year, the Energise Me Awards, proudly supported by Irwin Mitchell, focuses on celebrating the achievements and dedication of our local heroes across so many different sports and activities. The wide range of categories ensures that recognition is given to participants, elite performers, as well as teams, clubs and supporters of the local sporting community; the coaches, officials and volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to help athletes and clubs succeed and get people active. In the past, we’ve recognised achievements at the awards from athletes who have gone onto triumph on the world stage including Olympic gold medallists Dani King MBE (cycling) and Chris Mears (diving) and Paralympic bronze medallist, Olivia Breen (athletics).
Southampton Football Club has been our host for the last few years, a fitting place to celebrate sporting dedication and achievement. In 2016 a record number of athletes, coaches, teams, clubs and volunteers were nominated – 320 entries for just 18 categories. Not only does this show how much varied talent there is across the county but also the dedication and passion of those unsung heroes – all the people out there in all weathers, at all times and alongside busy lives to make sure individuals, teams and clubs reach their full potential.
The Energise Me Awards, proudly supported by Irwin Mitchell, recognise so many different sports which reflects our commitment to inclusivity; everything from para swimming to wheelchair rugby and angling are represented. We promote the awards with the hope that people of all ages and walks of life are encouraged to get involved – and perhaps one day have the chance to join the prestigious list of nominees.
