Sporty youngsters are wanted to take part in this year's Surrey Youth Games.

Epsom Council is encouraging all those aged 7 to 16 to represent the borough at the event, which will be held on June 15 and 16 at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford.

Free trials and coaching sessions will start in April to choose the borough squad, which will compete against teams from 10 other Surrey boroughs and districts.

There will be a huge range of sports played at the games including badminton, basketball, boccia, non-contact boxing, contact boxing, cricket, football, hockey, judo, lacrosse, netball, high five netball, rugby, squash, swimming, table tennis and tennis.

Councillor Jan Mason, chairwoman of the council’s leisure committee, said: "Last year, the Epsom and Ewell squad came away with the best ever medal haul and came out overall sixth out of the 11 Surrey boroughs and districts, entering teams in 13 different sports.

"The P&G Surrey Youth Games is a great opportunity for young people to try a new sport, or to improve their skills."

Entrants must live in, or go to school in, the borough and must be of sub-county level.
