The Derbyshire Sports Awards is one of the showpiece occasions of the county's sporting calendar.

Celebrating the county's outstanding achievements

The Derbyshire Sports Awards were back for an 11th year 2016 - the second time they were run by the Derby Telegraph in partnership with Derbyshire Sport and Champions UK.

All of the local authorities in Derbyshire ran their own local Sports Awards nomination process, where the winners filtered straight through to be considered for the Derby Telegraph Sports Awards, which were held on November 10 at The Roundhouse, Derby.

The Sports Awards evening itself was organised by Champions (UK) plc, who have vast experience of organising Sports Awards events in other parts of the country.

Young, achieving people take centre stage

On a similar basis, the Derbyshire Schools' Sports Association (DSSA) Awards recognise the efforts of children and young people in sport within the educational environment.

They, too, are put forward for consideration at county level having first been selected as winners in their respective local areas.
