Herts Youth Games
The Herts Youth Games, sponsored by the Herts Sports Partnership has been taking place for 14 years. It attracts around 2000 young athletes, from the 10 local authorities of Hertfordshire. 20 competitive events Netball being one of these take place over two days at the stunning facilities of the Hertfordshire Sports Village, University of Hertfordshire. The Victor Ludrum Trophy is the ultimate reward for the winning local authority team. However the overall aim of the Games is to have a celebration of sport for its own sake. It is a celebration of sport development, seeking to raise the profile of sport, encourage the involvement and development of coaches, leaders and volunteers; and also to promote sporting attitudes of health, fun, fair play and enjoyment of participation.
