Sports Awards


At the end of each academic year the Students' Union throws an annaul awards evening to celebrate and recognise the hard work of indaviduals, teams and clubs.

The 2017 Northampton Students' Union Sports Awards was a fantastic celebration of our sports clubs and individuals achievements throughout the academic year. This year the awards were presented by our fabulous returning host Beth Wilson, the night also featured a superb three course meal with photography to capture the celebrations of the special moments clubs recieve recognition for their years worth of hard work.

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. This years awards saw the introduction of the 'Stallion of The Year Award'. A new award designed to recognise one student who embodies the Stallions ethos and goes that extra mile not just for their club but the sport in general.

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

The evening was a huge success and we are already working on next years awards. Keep an eye out for infomation about Sports Awards 2018!
