Kingston brings home gold from London Youth Games
News Published Tuesday, 11 July 2017

Kingston is celebrating bringing home nine gold, six silver and five bronze medals from the London Youth Games summer finals this weekend (8 to 9 July).
Over 290 local young people took part in 35 competitions, including sailing, para athletics and cycling. Kingston was awarded an overall 14th place out of the 33 London boroughs.

The biggest improvement was in the Aquathlon competition, where Kingston leapt 13 places, from 21st in 2016 to 8th this year.

On attending the event, Mayor of Kingston, Cllr Julie Pickering, said:

“I joined the team on Sunday and was amazed at the dedication and effort on show. One of the fantastic stories of local sporting history that came out of the weekend was, Andy Wooldridge, a Kingston dad who competed in the squash finals at the London Youth Games in 1977, cheered on his daughter, Clara, who took part and won gold in the same sport over the course of the weekend, 40 years later!

“We’ve had a hugely successful result and look forward to seeing us progress even further next year.“

Also on attending the event, Cllr Chris Hayes, Kingston Council’s London Youth Games representative, added:

“Kingston has managed to hold it’s place at 14th for a second year running, which is fantastic. This is down to the commitment of our excellent sport teams in schools and clubs across the borough.”

Kingston Go Cycle News -  Portsmouth Road Walking & Cycling Route Officially Opened
Kingston Go Cycle News: Portsmouth Road walking and cycling route officially opened
The Portsmouth Road Go Cycle lane was officially opened last weekend, attracting families from around the borough to take part in the open day event.
official opening of the Portsmouth Road Go Cycle scheme
The official opening of the Portsmouth Road Go Cycle scheme
 
Over the past 15 months the council has been transforming the one mile stretch of road, as part of a £30 million investment by Transport for London and the Mayor of London to improve walking and cycling routes, and revitalise public spaces in the borough.
The Portsmouth Road scheme is one of 10 routes that form the borough’s Go Cycle programme to help create healthy streets and change the way people in the borough travel.

The event was officially opened by Deputy Mayor for Transport Val Shawcross and Walking and Cycling Commissioner Will Norman.

Val Shawcross, Deputy Mayor for Transport, said:
“Portsmouth Road is a brilliant scheme. Whether you want to pop down to the river, walk around the local area, or cycle safely into the centre of Kingston, these improvements will benefit everyone. We must help Londoners become more active and healthy, and this is a great example of how we can improve the physical environment, while encouraging more Londoners to make walking and cycling a part of their everyday routine.
‘We will continue to work closely with Kingston as they push ahead with their plans to get more people walking and cycling all across the borough.”
Whether you want to pop down to the river, walk around the local area, or cycle safely into the centre of Kingston, these improvements will benefit everyone

Will Norman, London’s first full-time Walking and Cycling Commissioner, said:

“It’s wonderful that Kingston shares the ambition of me and the Mayor to make cycling a safer and easier option for residents across their borough.
“This fantastic new scheme not only links Surbiton and Kingston with a calm and safe cycle route, but also improves their iconic riverside for pedestrians too. Getting more people walking and cycling can really improve quality of life for everyone – improving our health, tackling poor air quality, and improving our high streets.”

Ben Plowden, TfL's Director of Strategy and Planning, Surface Transport:
"This early scheme is impressive and when all routes are complete, Kingston will be more attractive, accessible and people-friendly so everyone can enjoy walking and cycling in the borough. A major cycle hub is planned, more high-quality cycling routes will be introduced and the area around Kingston station is set to be transformed."

Deputy Leader and portfolio holder for the Go Cycle Programme Councillor Terry Paton said:
“We have much to celebrate, as we mark the history of cycling and develop more healthy streets across our borough through the £30 million investment from TfL and the Mayor of London.
“This investment has created a direct and safer cycling link into the town centre, improved crossing points and has transformed the riverfront area around the Queen’s Promenade.”

Go Cycle member officer board Councillor Hilary Gander said:
“With the recent completion of the first Go Cycle lane along Portsmouth Road we’re hoping local residents will enjoy getting on a bike or walking into town along this route."
The day featured a bike market, penny farthing display and bike rides to Hampton Court Palace led by the sustainable cycling team.

Kingston Approves Innovative Plans For New Sport & Wellbeing Hubs


New council-owned sport, leisure and community hubs in New Malden, Kingston and South of the Borough and a replacement building at Kingsmeadow Centre were approved at Growth Committee on 13 October 2016.

Kingston’s approved Indoor Sport and Leisure Facilities Strategy proposes combining sports and community services, such as healthcare, to create integrated hubs across the borough.

The proposed replacement hubs for the Malden Centre in New Malden, the Kingfisher Leisure Centre in Kingston, as well as the new facility in South of the Borough, will all include swimming pools.

Supporting both the local community and homegrown sporting stars, the strategy also highlights the potential to include a martial arts facility in the plans due to uptake of the sport in Kingston.

Councillor Andrea Craig, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Sport and Leisure at Kingston Council, said:

“The Indoor Sports Strategy has highlighted what we all know, our existing facilities are much loved, with huge demand, but are in need of further investment and more centres need to be built to meet the growing demand in the borough.

“There is a huge appetite for sport in our borough. Together with the Mayor of London, we launched a pop up swimming pool in Chessington during the summer - the uptake was incredible. Over 1,200 people used the pool, 841 were local to South of the Borough and a fantastic 68% of school children achieved a swimming award. The recommendation from the report is for a new swimming pool and leisure centre in the South of the Borough. The council, with residents, now needs to investigate further potential options on where that could be.

“The new strategy demonstrates the need for more facilities across the borough, as well as allowing closer links with schools, which is brilliant. Residents play an integral role in shaping our community spaces and we will make sure that local people are kept up to date as these exciting plans progress.”


The approved Indoor Sport and Leisure Facilities Strategy will run from 2016 to 2028.

In our ongoing commitment to providing students with best possible experience of training, play and competition, Kingston College Women's Football Academy is proud to announce that is has formed a new partnership with Fulham Football Club Foundation.

The new Academy will add to the already flourishing Academy provision at Kingston College and aims to provide players with an unforgettable experience where they can grow and develop as footballers in a nurturing environment. Players will have the opportunity to demonstrate their talents in front of some of the top coaches and scouts in both England and the USA.

Sports News - Virgin Money Giving Mini London Marathon
Kingston hot-foot their way to glory!
Kingston's finest young athletes tightened their laces, donned their running vests, calmed their nerves and took to the streets of London on Sunday 13th April to represent the borough in this year's Virgin Money Giving Mini London Marathon. Our young marathoners set off at 6.30am to run the last three miles of the Virgin Money London Marathon course.
Under 13 Girls
The weather couldn't have been better and every member of the Kingston Squad ran the race of their lives against 32 other London boroughs. With 41 runners there were
many great performances and all contributed to Kingston's overall placings as follows:-
U17 Girls Team - 11th U17 Girls Mini Marathon - Kingston
U15 Girls Team - 4th
U13 Girls Team - 18th
U17 Boys Team - 14th
U15 Boys Team - 18th
U13 Boys Team - 8th
 
There were a few notable performances within the above categories:
U15Girls - Mollie O'Sullivan finished 3rd and Lucie Fletcher finished 10th;
 U13 Girls - Kathryn Bartle finished 49th;
U17 Boys - Aaron Farr finished 19th;
U15 Boys - Joshua Hall finished 23rd;
U13 Boys - Matthew Kossatz finished
21st;
But probably the best individual achievement was that of Phoebe Law
who finished 1st in the U17 Girls category with a time of 16:34 and received the Borough Trophy.
Phoebe (pictured above) represented Kingston last year in the U15 age category and finished 5th but as this was to be her final Mini Marathon she certainly finished on a high!

Out of the 41 runners that took part, many of them seasoned members of the Kingston squad, 31 finished in the top half which is a great achievement for a borough of our size and considering that each race had approximately 220 runners it proves that Kingston certainly does have a lot of dedicated and talented young athletes.
 
Under 15 boys
 
Kingston is also very proud to have clubs in the borough such as the Stragglers Running Club who once again managed the Kingston Squad this year, with Phil Davies taking on the Manager's role! Their team of committed and experienced volunteers looked after our squad throughout the day and supported them throughout the event, without them it would not have been possible for our young athletes to take part so a big thank you goes to the Stragglers!
