Students from the following East London boroughs sent teams to compete; Barking & Dagenham, Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

All of the students had an amazing time at the event playing  boccia, fencing, archery, judo, street dance, tennis, inclusive cycling, swimming, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair slalom. One of the highlights of the event was the disco on the final evening. Hackney borough won the multi sport competition. Well done to everyone who took part.
