Nominees for this year’s Living Sport Sports Awards include three from the Fens.
Categories which could see Fenland come out on top are the Services to Sport Award and the Community Club of the Year award, sponsored by Lifeplus.
March-based all-rounder Colin Bedford is up in the Services to Sport Award for his contribution to the sport of badminton.
Mr Bedford is well-known in March and the surrounding areas for his history workshops and coaching badminton for more than 40 years.
Up in the Community Club of the Year category are two Fen clubs, Three Counties Running Club and the Wisbech Inline Speed Skating Club.

"Community sport would not exist without the significant contribution made by organisers and coaches, most of whom are volunteers.
"Their organisations and our sports awards are a great occasion for us to celebrate, recognise and reward this."
The ceremony will be held at Burgess Hall in St Ives on Thursday, November 28.
