The Vitality Goalden Globe Awards are an annual celebration of our netball volunteers who have delivered outstanding contributions to netball across the country.
Whilst usually an evening of glitz and glamour, things are a little different this year as a result of COVID-19. Determined not to let that stop us, the Goalden Globe Awards will instead be a virtual awards ceremony that will take place on Thursday 10 December, following the postponement of the national event from earlier this year.
The awards will start at 19.45 with the ceremony lasting approximately 75 minutes. We will be joined by some special guests on the night as we present the prestigious awards and look back on the inspirational efforts and achievements of our volunteer family over the last year.
Being a virtual event means that the awards ceremony is open to all and will take place on the England Netball YouTube account, with a link to access the awards being circulated in advance of the night.
The following awards will be announced on the night, with nominees being put forward from their Regions:
- Young netball volunteer award
- Outstanding netball club award
- Mary Bulloch administrator award
- Muriel McNally award
- Grassroots coach of the year
- Sheelagh Redpath grassroots officials award
- Netball teacher award
- Unsung hero award
Additional National Recognised awards include:
- Pass on your passion volunteers completing 400 hours
- National long service award
- Inclusion and diversity award
- Rose award
- #RiseAgain Champion
We will also award Honorary Life memberships for individuals who have given exceptional service to England Netball as well as announcing any new inductees into the England Netball Hall of Fame on the night.
We very much hope you will be able to join us on the night as we recognise and celebrate the efforts and achievements of our volunteers.
In the coming weeks and months, regional Goalden Globe awards will take place up and down the country in the nine netball regions, with winners of each regional award being shortlisted for the national awards.
