Barford Lakes proudly hosted the Angling finals for the Sainsbury’s Norfolk School Games. 

All eight of Norfolk’s School Sports Partnerships entered two teams of three, so 48 young anglers competed in this Level 3 competition.  The Summer School Games has seen around 2500 young people compete in various sports over this week.  Angling successfully entered into the games through the work of the County Angling Action group organised by the Angling Trust (angling’s governing body)

Norfolk’s one of the few School Games to have angling within the school games structure giving young anglers an opportunity to compete at county level, most had never represented their School Sports Partnership in sport.

Sarah Thomson (Barford’s Level II angling coach and tackle shop manager) “It’s been great that their sport has been mainstreamed by having it in the School Games structure and very positive for angling for us to be involved”
