The Herefordshire and Worcestershire School Games Finals have been hailed as a great success.
Managed by the Sports Partnership Herefordshire & Worcestershire and district-based Schools Games Organiser, this inter-school contest aims to give young people a platform to achieve their personal best through competitive sport.
Over 1000 children aged seven to sixteen came together to go head to ahead in a variety of sports including new age kurling, dodgeball, badminton, netball, quicksticks hockey, sports hall athletics and pan-disability football.
Sporting Champions Lucy Walton, England hockey and golf, and Matt Richards, Welsh swimmer, opened the games and spoke to the children about their sporting journey, offering words of advice and encouragement.
