The National Awards is an event that is designed to reward all those stand out performers and contributors to the sport of Gymnastics throughout the year.

Some winners will automatically be announced, but in other cases and based on the calibre of entries Gymnastics Ireland may decide to shortlist 3 finalists with the winner being announced on the night.

Gymnastics Ireland will invite at its cost all winners, which will include in the case of individual winners two tickets (winner + 1 guest ticket) and in the case of clubs, two tickets per club. Additional tickets can then be purchased whereby, for example, a club will have the opportunity to take an additional 8/10 tickets thereby securing a full table of 10/12 persons on the evening. Information regarding ticket prices and dress code will be provided shortly.
