Cerebral Palsy Sport shares a round-up of its National Finals 2016:
On Sunday 4 December 2016, Cerebral Palsy Sport held its National Table Cricket Community Finals at Edgbaston Indoor Cricket centre. Top table cricket teams in the country battled it out to see who would become the National Community Champions of 2016.
It was an early start for the volunteers, who made sure the stage was set for the competitors and officials. The competition was a round robin to ensure as many games played as possible.
Seven teams took part in the finals: Linkage Lemurs, Kingsmill Knights, Foresight Foxes, Clare School, Bradley Stoke Community, Portland College and Wilson Stuart Daredevils. It was an intense morning session with all to play for, followed by several tight games in the afternoon, with matches being won in the last over.
In the end it was the team from Wilson Stuart Dare-Devils who came out on top and were crowned National Table Cricket Community Champions 2016. Portland College and Clare School came second and third. Player of the Tournament was awarded to Bailey Spiller from Bradley Stoke Community School, and the Fair Play Award was given to Kingsmill Knights School.
Cerebral Palsy Sport would like to thank the support of DM Thomas Foundation whose funding provided the awards for the finals day.
The 2017 National Finals will take place on 2nd December 2017 at Edgbaston. If you are interested in taking part or would like more information, please go the Cerebral Palsy Sport’s website, or contact Cerebral Palsy Sport on 0115 925 7027 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
