London Youth Games concludes at Copper Box Arena

10 Jul 2024
The London Youth Games Finals Festival took place at GLL's Copper Box Arena in London / GLL
After an incredibly competitive season, the London Youth Games Finals Festival took place at the end of last month at GLL's Copper Box Arena in London.

In the weeks leading up to this, young Londoners from right across the capital had met and competed at the city's most iconic sports venues including Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre and Lee Valley VeloPark, the London Aquatics Centre and CBA itself.

In this Olympic and Paralympic year, the LYG Finals Festival celebrated sport, culture and community and marked the conclusion of over fifty qualifying events across more than thirty sports.

London Youth Games Chair, Prof Geoff Thompson MBE FRSA DL QP JM, emphasized the holistic benefits of the Games stating, “The London Youth Games Finals Festival in this Olympic and Paralympic year provided a distinct opportunity for families, friends, coaches, officials, volunteers, and organizations to work together and be part of something special in the lives of young people and communities.

"The Jubilee Trophy is a reflection of a year-round exposure of sport for development and peace. The mental, physical, and emotional health and well-being benefits were evident as the teams went through the final rounds.”

David, Southwark basketball player said, “It means a lot to a lot of young people to compete in an Olympic venue like this. When we were told we were playing at the Copper Box, I was shocked, I was like 'The real Copper Box?!? This is obviously where the London Lions play and it hosted the Olympics back in 2012, so it’s amazing to play where they were.”

Congratulations to all those who took part, and especially the big winners, Bromley, who came away with the coveted Jubilee Trophy, while Wandsworth won the ParaGames Trophy, recognising their outstanding performances across an incredible calendar of sporting events.

Testimonial
“We made the decision to begin supporting the GLL Sport Foundation in 2015, and it is a pleasure to announce the renewal of our sponsorship with this incredible institution.

"Many bright and talented athletes throughout the United Kingdom are unable to chase their dreams of sporting glory due to lack of funding. We are passionate about helping GSF give equal opportunities to all young people and achieving their dreams of competing on the international stage.

"Our partnership enables both our brands to share the success of the UK’s most aspiring athletes who we are proud to have heard speak in such an inspirational way at our internal Sales Conferences and who have supported our marketing and brand development goals through representation and storytelling both in person and via social media”.

– Rod Tonna-Barthet, chief executive, Annodata

– Daryll Neita, Birmingham Commonwealth Games bronze and silver medalist, GLL Athlete

We look forward to together creating exciting new programmes and activities that draw on the strengths of both organisations.

As part of the partnership Lee Valley Regional Park Authority will continue to invest to ensure that they go from strength to strength, delivering real impact for communities.”
