The Surrey Para Games was established as a legacy to the 2012 London Olympics. Run at Charterhouse Club in Godalming in July, it's open to Surrey children aged 11‐15 (school years 7-10), who have special educational needs and/or disabilities.
Participants take part in a variety of sports including swimming, boccia, cricket, cycling, football, rowing, rugby, tennis and sitting volleyball. The aim of the event is to provide new experiences, build confidence encourage young people to continue being active in their local community after the Games.
95% of teachers said their young people are more willing to take part in activities in school.
73% of teachers felt that young people would be more willing to take part in out of school activities.
What an amazing day! Our children are absolutely buzzing! Thank you so much, can't wait to take part again!!! 😊😊
