The London Youth Games was inaugurated in 1977 as part of The Queen’s Silver Jubilee Celebrations. Now entering its 40th year, the Games provide competitive sporting opportunities for young Londoners. The Games are attended by more than 100,000 children from across London competing in more than 30 different sports.
For the last 12 years Harlequins, and now the Harlequins Foundation, has sponsored ‘Team Richmond’, enabling 450 local children to compete. The partnership represents a significant and positive investment into the local community, encouraging children to participate in sport, as well as reinforcing our commitment to physical and mental health. Team Richmond consistently competes at the highest level, coming in the top three for the last few years: http://www.richmond.gov.uk/london_youth_games
