British Ethnic Diversity Sports Awards 2018
The 4th Annual British Ethnic Diversity Sport Awards 2018
The British Ethnic Diversity Sports Awards (BEDSA) established by Sporting Equals in 2015, to celebrate sporting excellence within Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities and help inspire the next generation.
The BEDSAs are designed to recognise and celebrate the contributions made by BAME communities. The Awards will help drive change in the sport sector where more role models from more communities are required to decrease under representation in the sport sector from grassroots sport to elite athletes. The recognition of hard work and dedication stimulates interest and unearths talent on and off the field of play.
