The hotly anticipated Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 2018 is gearing up for another successful year.

BBC Radio Surrey features the Games

On Tuesday 13 March, the Breakfast Show on BBC Radio Surrey interviewed organisers from Active Surrey and a couple of participants from last year's games. The interview promoted the upcoming Games and encouraged young people across the Surrey county to get signed up.

The largest multi-sport youth competition in the county

The event will take part at Surrey Research Park over the weekend of the 23-24 June. Specsavers stores across Surrey provide the necessary funding to ensure young people get to trial a new sport for free and to enable the Games to continue its quest to bring together 7-16 year olds from Surrey's 11 districts and boroughs.

How it works

Children can sign up to receive free training in a sport of their choice via their local district or borough council web pages. The idea is to encourage people to try something new and then represent their community at the games in the summer.

Most of the action will be on 'Super Sunday', with borough and district squads battling it out at Surrey Sports Park. Girls' cricket and football will take place on Saturday, as will badminton and senior squash.

Get registered

Young people are being encouraged to enter now via their local borough and district web pages. You can also find more details here. Last year, the Games received a record number of girls entering and everyone is hopeful to exceed this in 2018.
