Essex School Games

In regards to recent updates and in line with current guidelines, it is with regret that Active Essex made the formal decision to postpone all Level 3 School Games events up until the end of May 2020.

  • Mini Hockey, Felstead School, Friday 27 March
  • X-Country, Hadleigh Park (Team & Individual events), Friday 24 April
  • Archery, St Thomas Moore School, Thursday 21 May

We can also confirm that our Special School Games, in partnership with the Multi Schools Council (Wednesday 17 June) has also be postponed.

We will continue to work closely with our Education colleagues and School Games Organisers through this difficult time and follow updated CMO and government guidance responding accordingly.

We will keep you informed of any future plans and in the meantime hope you can stay ‘active and well at home’

Please stay safe, stay at home!
