Cambridge Partnership Youth Games 2016 – Our Biggest Yet!


The music played, the sun shone and the smiles of the children enjoying themselves made a magnificent day for everyone taking part whether they were doing the activities or helping out with them everyone had a great day which they will be sure to remember. 

The Better Abbey Leisure Complex played host to 20 schools taking part in a range of different sports activities as part of the Cambridge School Sport Partnership’s annual Youth Games. This year’s theme was the Olympics, with the children wearing T shirts with the different colours of Olympic teams! Our many thanks go to GLL, who kindly sponsored the t-shirts.

Schools entered their year 3 and year 4 students in teams of 10, and each team took part in all of the different activities throughout the day. These were run by leaders from Netherhall, Chesterton, St Bedes, Park Street, Mayfield and Kings School. The standard of the leadership was absolutely excellent and they all were a credit to their school or college.

Some of the competitions available included Football, Athletics, Tag Rugby, Kwik Cricket, Quick Sticks Hockey and Tennis. The taster activities were, Multi Skills, Boccia, Cheerleading, Bootcamp Goalball, Rounders, Sitting Volleyball and Ultimate Frisbee.

Once all the children had finished their activities we held an award ceremony where our special guest of the day, paralympian Fran Williamson, shook the hands of the winning schools.

During her time as a GB team member, Fran competed at no less than three World Championships and two Paralympic games ( Athens, 2004 and Beijing, 2008).
