Hammersmith & Fulham Community Sports Awards

2018 awards at the Lyric Hammersmith

The eighth annual Hammersmith & Fulham Community Sports Awards will be taking place on Friday 12 October 2018, from 5.30pm to 9pm. Venue: The Lyric Hammersmith, Lyric Square, King Street, W6 0QL. This is an event to celebrate everyone that is helping to make sport and physical activity popular, fun and successful for the community.

Our last sports awards event in 2016 was a great success with some great winners receiving trophies from the special guest Jenna Downing, ex-World and British skating champion, who matched the previous guests’ inspirational stewardship which has included Olympic champion Peter Wilson (London 2012 shooting gold medallist), Tasha Danvers (Olympic bronze medallist in the 400m hurdles), Ade Adepitan and BBC presenter John Inverdale.
