Take a bow! An inspirational weekend filled with medals galore, sportsmanship and team spirit!

The School Games National Finals 2022 has once again shown that the future is bright for British sport!

It has been a cracking weekend in Loughborough University for the School Games National Finals, featuring the next generation of British sporting stars. It was a lively four days on campus that saw a world record broken, gold, silver, and bronze medals galore and the spirit of the School Games National Finals fully on display with sportsmanship, teamwork, and fair play throughout.

It was wonderful to have a roaring crowd return to watch the event creating an unforgettable atmosphere that gave the athletes that extra bit of encouragement. The competition was fierce but in the true spirit of the National Finals, we witnessed some fantastic sportsmanship and teamwork. We were beyond thrilled to see the School Games National Finals at full capacity once again and to see all of the smiling faces both on and off the field of play!

This year’s event closed out with an epic battle in Wheelchair Basketball that saw England Orange Boys take home the top prize while Commonwealth Games medallist Charlotte Moore was on hand to present the wheelchair basketballers with their medals. It was a fantastic year for Ulster and England Hockey who were both victorious today while Manchester Pulse took home gold in Netball.

It takes an enormous amount of hard work and courage to compete at the School Games National Finals and all participants gave a great account of themselves. From all the team at School Games National Finals, we want to give a huge thanks to all the competitors, the coaching staff for their guidance, the respective schools for allowing the talent to flourish and to all the wonderful volunteers, officials and event staff who made it happen.

We are already looking forward to seeing the progress from this year’s athletes and for those who were competing at the SGNF for the final time, a massive thank you for all of your hard work, effort and for participating. We hope that you will carry on this experience and the many positive lessons from participating in sport into your next chapter and help to spread the word about the benefits a sporting life can have both physically and mentally.

Until next time!
