Specsavers Surrey Youth Games

Published Monday, 2 July 2018

It was gold, silver and bronze for Waverley’s young people at the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games that took place on 23 and 24 June.

A total of 136 young people, across 18 teams of girls and boys from schools in Waverley, in 13 different sports, represented the borough at last weekend’s games. Between them they won two gold medals in the boys judo and junior boccia, a silver medal in high five netball, and bronze medals in senior football, boys judo and contact boxing.

As well as scooping up six awards, Team Waverley was also presented with second place for the Fair Play Award.

Councillor Jenny Else, Portfolio Holder for Health and Wellbeing, said: “The Surrey Youth Games was a wonderful weekend of sport and great sportsmanship. I am really proud of all the young people from Waverley who took part. 

“The games have been a priority for Waverley for many years as they provide young people with the opportunity to try new sports, get active and make new friends. The success of the team is down to the many weeks of commitment, practice and the hard work the competitors have put in and the dedication of the coaches and the council’s leisure team; I am so pleased all their hard work paid off.”
