About the london youth games
Your borough. Your sport. Your passion.
We believe London is the most exciting, diverse, and vibrant city in the world. Our vision is to create the world’s largest and most inclusive city-focused youth games that are accessible to all, multi-sport and reach all of London.
Primary and secondary schools right across London come together every year at the School Games. They face off in four kinds of competition: intra-school, local inter-school, county finals and the School Games National Finals.
The School Games are open to young peole who go to school in a London borough, with School Games Organisers in each borough organising teams to take part.
Every year, 33 London boroughs set their sights on the Jubilee Trophy, the ultimate prize in our Open Games. Your borough’s top scores in every competition all get added together. Whoever has the most points is declared the winner.
The Open Games are open to young people who live or go to school in a London borough, with Borough Team Organisers in each borough organising teams to take part.

Top talent starts here
For some of the biggest names in sport, it all started at the London Youth Games. Our Hall of Fame celebrates the ongoing success of our athletes, volunteers, coaches, officials and partner organisations. We’re proud to have known some the UK’s greatest sportspeople from the last four decades: including Mo Farah, Zoe Smith, David Weir, Rachel Yankey and Dina Asher-Smith.
Our Respect the Games campaign celebrates everything that makes London’s youth great. Values like fairness, ambition, inclusion and respect. And our regular events for disabled young people encourage everyone in every borough to get more involved in sport. Together, our values are helping us build a stronger London.

We’ve been inspiring young Londoners since 1977, when the London Youth Games were launched to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Since then, borough teams from all corners of London have been coming together every year to see who will win our Jubilee Trophy.
