TEAMBrookes Sports Awards 2021

TEAMBrookes Sports Awards 2021

This year has been a whirlwind of “you’re on mute”, “can you see my screen” and “unprecedented circumstances”.

With all this, we are so proud of the way our TEAMBrookes Sports Clubs have still found ways to engage their club members, complete challenges and raise a lot of money for charity.

So now it’s time to celebrate the people who have made this all possible! In normal years a lot of our awards would be performance-based, but for this year, we have made the decision to have fewer awards and have them celebrating the individuals and clubs who have made an impact.

We are excited to announce that nominations for the 37th Annual Sports Awards are now open.

This year we are celebrating the following awards:

Strength and Conditioning Award(s)

This award is given to the student(s) that our Lead Strength and Conditioning Coach and Interns feel have put in the most work and shown the most progression and dedication to their sport and supporting training over the past 12 months.

Rookie of the Year Award

This award is given to a student who joined a TEAMBrookes Sports Club during the 2020/21 academic year and made an impact (does not have to be a first-year student).

Committee Member of the Year Award

This award is given to a member of a TEAMBrookes Sports Club Committee who went above and beyond over the last 12 months for their club.

Club Spirit Award

This award is for the club that has championed inclusion, engaged its members and given back to the community and charities.

Sports Personality of the Year Award (Marc Thompson)

This award is in memory of Marc Thompson, a prominent member of the Rugby Club and founder of the Croquet Club (a social club designed to bring sports teams together).

A nominee for this award should epitomise Thommo’s enthusiasm, motivation, sense of fun and love for sport both on and off the field of play. They should be heavily involved within their club, as well as other aspects of sport at Oxford Brookes.

The deadline for nominations is 12 (noon) on Friday 23rd April and you can submit your nomination.

Unlike last year, this year we will be celebrating the whole event on Friday 14th May on our Instagram Stories.
