17 teams from across London and the South East came together on the 18th December to compete in AIR Sport’s hotly anticipated Annual Christmas Cup.
Over 140 players from AIR Sports, the South East’s leading sports and development organisation put everything into the hotly contested 5 a side tournament with teams from CRI Newham and Camden
winning both the Plate and Cup competition’s after a dramatic day of skill, technique and the occasional shock exit. A Christmas dinner with all the trimmings ensured everyone went home happy at the end of the day.
AIR Sports Director Colm Whitty used a break in the competition to praise the commitment, hard work and dedication of the players and commend them on just how far they had come over their time with AIR Sports.
Skill & Determination
Not to be outdone by the footwork skills on show, 24 AIR players also battled it out across the table in AIR’s first ever London wide table
tennis tournament. After a thrilling display of skill and great technique both the singles and tournaments were won by players from Lambeth.
AIR Sports Director Colm Whitty also said “ We are hugely grateful to everyone who helped make this day a fantastic success, BOOTS who generously sponsored the prizes and player gifts and to 3 OF A KIND and the EDGE for their excellent live performances.”
