Sports Awards



The 2016 Northampton Students' Union Sports Awards was a fantastic celebration of our sports clubs and individuals achievements throughout the academic year. This year the awards featured a motivational speaker in Kriss Akabusi and a superb three course meal with a photography team to capture the celebrations.

Awards were nominated by students and then shortlisted by a panel made up of elected officers - both Sabbatical and Part-time officers - as well as Students' Union staff. For the first time ever, the students voted on their Sports Personality of the Year through a vote on the website in which over 250 students voted.

Winners are shortlisted and then announced at the annual Sports Awards, which this year was held on Tuesday 19th April at the Royal and Derngate.

Photos from the evening can be found here.
