New for 2017 - MYG Opens Series

We are launching a series of Mini Youth Games Opens, starting with three sports in spring/summer 2017.

  • Tag Rugby - Wednesday, 26 April - Anchorians Sports Club
  • Athletics - Tuesday, 20 June - Medway Park
  • Tennis - Wednesday, 12 July - Avenue Tennis Centre 

The Open events are open to primary schools across Kent and Medway and for a contribution of £50 per school for any Medway school and £75 for non-Medway schools. The tournament will run in the same way as a regular MYG event, with prizes up for grabs at each event.
