Team Epsom & Ewell is gearing up for the P&G Surrey Youth Games which take place this weekend on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 June at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford.
235 young people have been selected for the Epsom & Ewell squad. The biggest team from the smallest Borough in Surrey, will be taking part in all 17 sports - basketball, badminton, boccia, boxing, girl's cricket, girl's football, hockey, judo, lacrosse, netball, netball high 5, girl's rugby, swimming, squash, table tennis, touchtennis and tennis.
Councillor Jan Mason, Chairman of the Leisure Committee said, "Good luck to Team Epsom & Ewell who are the only Borough team taking part in all categories. We have consistently entered more teams than any other Borough and it is a credit to the young people who took part in the trials and coaching sessions, well done to all involved!
P&G Surrey Youth Games is a great opportunity for young people to try a new sport, or to improve their skills by taking part in high quality free coaching sessions. It is a great weekend for everyone and the young people really enjoy themselves, make new friends and get to try a sport that they may not have had a go at before."
Thank you to everyone who registered to take part, we've had a fantastic response this year with a record 494 young people aged between seven and 16 registered to take part in the free trials and coaching sessions organised by the Council in April, May and June.
The free training sessions for all sports were run by qualified coaches and the majority have direct links with local clubs' junior sections, offering youngsters who took part, a chance to get involved with a club on a more long-term basis.
