2020 Competitions so far….

The 2020 competition started in November 2019 with the Cross Country event at Parliament Hill. The Wandsworth teams did brilliantly with the boys finishing 4th overall and the girls 3rd overall. The Boys under 11 team won Gold and the Girls under 11 and under 17 teams won bronze in their races.

After a short break in the winter, the competitions started again at the beginning of February where both the boys and girls Wandsworth cricket teams qualified for the finals at Lords Cricket Ground.

Well done to all those that have competed for Wandsworth so far.

Previous Results

Following 9 months of competition the 2019 season finished in July 2019. Wandsworth finished third overall and reclaimed the Inner London Trophy. Wandsworth took part in 46 events across 29 sports with over 500 young people representing the borough. A huge thank you to our team managers for each sport, who have created opportunities for young people to learn new skills and enjoy competing against London’s 32 boroughs.
