2015 Broxtowe Sports Review - East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham

January 18, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Hello sports fans,

On Sunday evening, I travelled east to the East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham for Broxtowe Borough Council to photograph their 2015 Annual Sports Review celebrating the achievements and successes of their volunteers, coaches, clubs and athletes.

The East Midlands Conference Centre is the ideal venue to welcome and showcase the annual Sports Review and this evening over 350 people attended to share in everyone's success. The sports development team at Broxtowe Borough Council had done a splendid job of dressing the venue and making everyone welcome with food and refreshments upon arrival. The build-up allowed the various guests to meet and discuss their achievements in a relaxed atmosphere before they were formally invited in to the banqueting room for the main event.

During the build up I was able to capture a number of images of the event from people arriving to the staging area. I was also able to view the various demonstrations that were planned and this enabled me to pick the best locations in the room to follow my photographer brief. The main event started, and it was a constant process of moving to the various locations at the correct times to minimise distraction and capture the speakers, guests, recipients and demonstrations.

It was a great evening of entertainment as well as some thrilling demonstrations including TEK Academy showing various kick boxing demonstrations; contemporary and graceful dance from Unity and from StyleBycyle a mixture of BMX flatland where riders perform rolling or spinning techniques and also to modern club dance.

The awards being presented included:

  • Sports Person of the Year
  • ​Young Sports Person of the Year
  • Disabled Sports Person of the Year
  • ​Volunteer of the Year
  • ​Young Volunteer of the Year
  • Team of the Year
  • Club of the Year
  • More than Sport award

As always, it was a pleasure to work with my colleagues at Broxtowe Sport and a selection of images can be seen on this website. The image below is of all the nominees to recognise the achievements of all present regardless of whether they were an award recipient.
