The Derbyshire School Games 2016
Hello sports fans,
Early this month I was commissioned to photograph the 2016 Derbyshire School Games on behalf of Derbyshire Sport and its partners including the School Sport Partnerships. The multi-sport Derbyshire School Games were held at Mount St. Mary's College, Spinkhill. The independent school offered fantastic sporting facilities for the 800 young competitors across eight different sports - cycling, cricket, tennis, QuadKids athletics, golf, rounders, Boccia and football. Another 200 young leaders volunteered as event officials, marshals and media leaders to ensure a smooth running of the event, which is the culmination of competitions across the school year.
The sunny weather complimented the sporting action and it was a pleasure to see all the young people striving to perform their very best. It reminded me of my previous work as a sport development professional where these young people loved what they were doing which hopefully will continue as they reach adulthood.
Due to the nature of event with young people, we at Xcite Images have decided not to publish images of the young people on this site. However, Derbyshire Sport have included a brief gallery online.
