It is time to remember all the sporting achievements and those that have help to make Sport in Luton a success.


Luton Sports Network

The Luton Sports Network is a voluntary body, operating under delegated authority of board of Active Luton, has been representing sport in Luton for over 30 years. It promotes and encourages sport and physical activity within the Borough and provides the local forum for sport.


Membership is open to all sports clubs and other interested organisations and individuals within the Borough.  It has a varied programme of activities and provides grants to sportsmen, women and clubs in the Borough.


Luton Sports Awards

The Luton Sports Network Annual Sports Awards provide a fantastic opportunity to recognise and reward talented local sportsmen and sportswomen, coaches, volunteers, teams and clubs for their outstanding achievements in sport over the past 12 months. Nominations will be accepted from anyone, including members of the nominee’s family or club.  Self-nomination is acceptable.

The nomination process is now open and will close on 31st December 2017.


In addition, the Annual Sports Personality of the year award will be open to the public via our now popular on-line poll of the nominated individuals. The poll will open on 7th December 2017.

The Sports Awards will be presented at an event to be hosted at Chalk Hill Academy on 2nd February 2018.

Attendance will be by invitation to short listed nominees and their supporters. We will extend the rewards made at last year’s event. This year the winner and runner of each category will receive rewards to the value £250 and £100 respectively. Those entitled to the rewards will be notified of how to apply for the award. There is a real incentive to submit those nominations.
