Sporteducate tournament gets the summer off to a great start for over 70 young people

To celebrate the first anniversary of the sporteducate programme, Sported and Deutsche Bank teamed up to host a summer table tennis and football tournament.



The event saw over 70 young people from 10 sporteducate clubs across London come together for a day of sporting festivities and gave the respective club leaders a rare chance to meet and share ideas. The event was kindly hosted at home of sporteducate member club, Crown and Manor Boys Club, in their brand new purpose built facility in Hoxton.



In keeping with the central ethos of the sporteducateprogramme, Deutsche Bank volunteers were an integral part of the proceedings with 24 enthusiastic staff members coming down for the afternoon to lend their support, meet some of the beneficiaries of the programme and, of course, get involved with some of the sporting activities. The DB volunteers were also given the chance to ‘Adopt a Club’ for the day, which saw them team up with a club and support them in their quest for tournament glory!
Although all of the young people and clubs were winners for their attitude, competitive spirit and teamwork, Rap Aid Youth FC from Edmonton ultimately triumphed, coming out on top of the leader board with superb performances on the football pitch and the tennis tables. Football Beyond Borders and Samuel Lithgow Youth Centre edged out the competition for second and third place, respectively.
