About the BEDSA?
The BEDSAs are designed to recognise and celebrate the contributions made by black and minority ethnic communities. The Awards will help drive change in the sport sector where more role models from more communities in more sports are a priority to increase participation.
The recognition of hard work and dedication stimulates interest and unearths talent on and off the field of play.
