Posted on: December 20th, 2011 by Nathan Reid

On Monday 12th December 2011 Active8 Sheffield saw off the wet and windy conditions to host their first ever Corporate 6-a-side football tournament. The event took place at King Edwards Sports Centre and was a resounding success due to all teams that took part competing fantastically well!

Darren Roberts captained his Jack-in-a-box side to victory without losing a game and only conceding one goal throughout the whole tournament. They saw off Ross Brown’s Sheffield Hallam University outfit with a 1-0 win in the final under the floodlights courtesy of a goal from tournament leading goalscorer Jamie Roper.

Other teams that took part included James Taylor’s Sheffield University Officer Training Corps, John Champion’s Electrical Services, Gregg Lant’s Morrisons Side and Andrew Leonard’s Premier Sport guys.

Special Thanks go out to everyone who entered a team and took part in our event. A final Thank You also goes to Joe Mullen who gave up his own time to help us officiate the event, we couldn’t have done it without you all!

Active8 would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. We look forward to many more events to come!

King Edwards Tennis, Badminton & Fun Camp

Posted on: September 23rd, 2009 by Nathan Reid

Interserve Active8 ran their first tennis, badminton & fun camps during the summer period. Richard Furness a qualified tennis coach came into run the sessions and offer his expertise to the groups. Luckily all but one of the days the weather held up so we could use the outdoor facilities for tennis.

Throughout the day we did various relay and tag games to warm up, followed by the favourite dodgeball challenge before getting out the tennis rackets and practicing skills, shots then playing some games. There was a huge improvement over the weeks as the groups confidence rose and some of the group will now be attending some tennis coaching sessions. After lunch more warm up games were done followed by some badminton practice & a mini tournament. The tournaments allowed everyone to play each other no matter of age or ability in a short, fun format.

Again thank you to everyone who participated and showed support throughout the summer, for making these sessions enjoyable and we hope to see you all again on future camps.
