The Sainsbury's 2014 School Games is a multi-sport event that takes place from 4-7 September 2014 in Manchester. It seeks to create an inspirational and motivational setting that not only provides our elite young sports people with the opportunity to thrive and perform at the highest levels, but encourages more young people to take part and succeed in sport.
