52 years of sporting excellence
The Marlborough Sports Awards has been the premier Sports Awards event in the Marlborough province since 1967.
Over the course of the last 51 years many Local, National, World and Olympic champions have been honoured for their achievements and their impact on our community. Since its inception, over 300 Marlborough people have attended this event annually.
In 2018, the Marlborough Sports Awards will be organised and presented by key partners; Blenheim Round Table, Sport Tasman and the Marlborough App.
The Marlborough Sports Awards is an opportunity to acknowledge some of our top sportspeople amongst family, friends and the wider community. We encourage all sports codes to get involved, to showcase the efforts of their leading performers over the past 12 months. Nominations are not limited to athletes; coaches, managers and officials may also be put forward.

Sportsman of the Year
The Marlborough Medal
A special award for Lifetime Contribution to Sport in Marlborough, known as The Marlborough Medal, was introduced in 2013. This prestigious award is also presented on the night, revealing the amazing dedication and community spirit of one of our local champions, who is more often than not a volunteer.
