The Bedfordshire County Awards are presented annually to say a massive thank you to our volunteers within the County who work tirelessly for netball through their dedication and to recognise their achievements in netball. 

Nominations will be considered by a panel of three adjudicators appointed by the County Committee.  The closing date for nominations for the 2022-2023 Awards is the 1st May 2023 and completed nominations forms should be signed and returned to the County Vice-Chair at [email protected]
