For the next generation
At this year’s SportsBall the stars of British sport will help the country’s brightest prospects to make their dreams of sporting success a reality. This exclusive black-tie event is open to all – from sports fans and sponsors to anyone with a passion for helping young people to succeed. Its unique, relaxed atmosphere makes for a great networking event. Join SportsAid at this year’s SportsBall for a truly inspirational evening.
SportsAid’s much-anticipated One-to-Watch Award showcases the very best of the next generation of British sport. Chosen from more than a thousand young disabled and non-disabled athletes nationwide, past winners include diver Tom Daley, sprinters Sally Brown and Jodie Williams and heptathlete Morgan Lake. In 2013 the award was presented by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, SportsAid’s Patron.
By far the best black tie event I've been to and all of my clients emailed to say what a privilege it was to attend.
