Cricket Scotland is today excited to announce our annual Awards Dinner is set to hit Edinburgh on Friday 7th February 2020 at The Village Hotel.
An evening of celebration for the 2019 season both on and off the pitch, guests will have the opportunity to mingle with our national team players as we revisit the highs of the cricket season and beyond.
Guests will enjoy a three-course dinner, entertainment and award ceremony with a cash bar open throughout the night. Awards will span the domestic game, international players and we’re pleased to add five new participation awards at the event.
Nominate your club
For 2020, nominations are now closed.
This award will be presented to a club who has implemented a good communications campaign or strategy to interact with their members and the wider cricketing community. This could be via a club website, social media platforms or use of team communication apps. Have you revamped your club communications in 2019? We want to hear from you!
The Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Award
This award will be presented to a club that has; demonstrated an EDI approach to growing club membership, interacted with new groups or perhaps internally diversified their structures or membership to enhance their club culture. This could have been done by implementing a CS initiative (such as CricHIIT or Allstars) or a community engagement initiative that’s helped your club strive for better inclusivity.
Volunteer of the Year
It’s no secret that volunteers are the unsung heroes of the sports world, often committing hours of work and commitment to a variety of tasks, all for the love of our sport. Cricket Scotland would like to recognise someone who has given a significant voluntary contribution to their club in any area – be it coaching, officiating, club committee duties, or fundraising for example.
Young Volunteer of the Year (under 25)
In addition to the above, Cricket Scotland have decided to award a Young Volunteer of the Year too in recognition of ensuring clubs encourage the ‘next generation’ to get involved and contribute to their own clubs from a young age.
Ground & Facilities Award
This award will be presented to the club that has worked hard to develop and improve their facilities overall – perhaps creating social hubs within their local area, linking up with other social/sports groups to maximise their ground usage, or building and enhancing existing structures and facilities for members & players to enjoy.
Tickets for the event are now sold out.
