The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games is the largest annual youth sports festival in the county with more than 2,000 competitors taking part in the event every year. The Games are open to children and young people aged between 6 and 16 years old who live or go to school in the Borough. It is a great opportunity for them to try out a new sport or enhance their knowledge and ability in their favourite sport by receiving coaching, tactics and skills from local qualified coaches, all for free.
The attendees of the training sessions then have a chance to represent Epsom & Ewell against the 10 other boroughs and districts of Surrey on the 15 and 16 June at the Surrey Sports Park (SSP) in Guildford, Surrey.
Team Epsom & Ewell had great success in 2018 securing more medals in total than any other borough or district in Surrey, we hope to continue this success in the 2019 Games.

Epsom & Ewell finished as overall runners-up in the Surrey Youth Games in 2016 and in 2017 and last won the trophy in 2015.
