Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 2019

Congratulations to all those who participated in the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games Weekend!

SYG 2019
Team Guildford came second overall in the borough fair play trophy, demonstrating the excellent sportsmanship of our players and coaches. Guildford fielded 23 teams in the Games weekend festival, bringing home gold in the under 16 mixed contact boxing competition.


We hope all our young people from Guildford enjoyed the free local activities as part of the pre-Specsavers Surrey Youth Games taster session programme.

If your child wishes to continue participating in their activity, please see below a list of local SSYG recreational and club/coaching exit routes.

The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games is the largest annual youth sports festival in Surrey, involving over 2,000 young people over the course of the games weekend. In the lead up to the games, Guildford Borough Council, in partnership with local clubs and coaches, provides free taster sessions in various activities across the borough. These sessions are beginner level for young people who want to try a new activity, make friends and have fun!
