Competition

In Sutton, we deliver over 70 competitions and festivals annually to primary, secondary and SEN schools throughout the borough. Our ethos is to provide young people of all ages, interests and abilities the opportunity of experiencing the excitement of taking part in a large scale event. The offer of a diverse range of events will hopefully ignite a love of physical activity, leading to an active lifestyle and lasting throughout adulthood.

Due to the restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic our usual competition calendar has been replaced with intra, virtual or personal best competitions and challenges.
