UK School Games

The School Games (former known as UK School Games) is an annual sporting competition for elite school-age athletes in the United Kingdom who started in 2006.

The event was based on an Olympic Games model, with multiple sports events held across an intensive four-day period. The Games were organised by the Youth Sport Trust, sponsored by Sainsburys, and from 2008 received funding from Legacy Trust UK, a charitable trust set up to ensure that the 2012 Summer Olympics generate a lasting legacy across the UK.

In 2011, 1600 elite school-aged athletes participated in the event across 12 sports: Athletics, Badminton, Cycling, Fencing, Gymnastics, Hockey, Judo, Rugby Sevens, Swimming, Table Tennis, Volleyball and Wheelchair Basketball.?.

Famous quotes containing the words games and/or school:

    As long as lightly all their livelong sessions,
    Like a yardful of schoolboys out at recess
    Before their plays and games were organized,
    They yelling mix tag, hide-and-seek, hopscotch,
    And leapfrog in each other’s way all’s well.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I go to school to youth to learn the future.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
