About the Games
The games are spread over a single weekend every year and it brings together children from all over the county, where each of the eleven districts and boroughs in Surrey compete against each other in a variety of activities.
Children in the district get up to seven weeks free coaching in a range of different sports and then get selected to compete for Mole Valley.
