Success for Hounslow at London Youth Games 2019

The London Youth Games is Europe's largest annual youth sporting event where youngsters from 33 London Boroughs compete against each other in over 30 different sports at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre.

In the run up to the event, Fusion's sports development team work closely with local schools and clubs in the Borough to promote the London Youth Games across Hounslow. Traditionally, Hounslow have offered open trials in a variety of sports followed by 6-8 weeks of free training using local club coaches to ensure that every child in the borough has the opportunity to take part. Over 500 youngsters took part in the trials and training sessions.

At the finals event at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre over the weekend of 6th and 7th July, Hounslow entered over 50 participants competing in basketball, athletics, football, swimming, indoor rowing and aquathlon. Hounslow finished 28th overall this year.

The Sports Development Team would like to say thank you to everyone who took part,helped, coach and volunteered their time to help.
