Urban Gamez has been a free to attend sport event on the Grahame Park Estate since 2010.

The event aims to promote awareness and access to local sport activities, and encourage children, young people and families to become more actively involved. Although the event is organised by The Barnet Group it would not survive or exist without the ongoing support and involvement of so many partners and stakeholders.

We would like to thank you in advance for taking part and joining us in celebrating its 10th Anniversary on Heybourne Park
