Last Thursday, 6 August, saw the young professionals host a table football tournament in celebration of the start of the new football season.
Doubles teams from a range of industries competed for a chance to take home engraved winners medals and bottle of champagne.
It was clear from the outset that the teams from Cranfield had been practising as they own the football tables. However, despite making up three out of four of the teams in the semi-finals, they didn’t quite make it to the top.
It was a close call in the final which saw Phil Ballard of Cranfield Recovery, ably assisted by Leonie Salter of Wright Hassall, take on Paige Howitt and Dean Cart from Stewart Fletcher Barrett. However in the end the SFB team took home the champagne and trophies.
Bringing up the rear were ‘Wright Hassall on Tour’ made up of Jeremy Hyde and Nathan Lapsley.
This month’s Myton Hospice raffle prize was two tickets to West Midlands Safari Park. These were won by Jeremy Hyde of Wright Hassall. The raffle raised £42 which will be added to our running total for the year. Don’t forget we also have the Wolf Run coming up and you can sponsor the Young Professionals team via our Just Giving page.
Finally, thanks should go to Phil Ballard, our Young Professionals Treasurer, for organising and running the event.
Our next event will be our Thirsty Thursday on 3 September in Leamington. Further details will be sent via our mailing list. If you’d like to be added please email me C.A.Duxson@warwick.ac.uk All our Thirsty Thursday events are free and open to young professionals of any age across Coventry and Warwickshire.
