Exciting ‘Bubble’ soccer tournament this weekend

2016-10-26 06:00

HAVE you heard about this exhilarating new activity, well this weekend you will be able to try it out right here in Greytown.

Letcee is holding a Bubble soccer tournament, as a fund-raising event, on Saturday 29 October at the Greytown Junior School's sports field in Becker Street.

Bubble soccer is a fun sport activity where teams of five play soccer while their upper bodies, arms and heads are encased in a big plastic bubble or ball.

Instead of tackling the other team, you bump them with your bubble-ball. As you can imagine no soccer skills are needed, in fact in some games the soccer ball isn't even touched.

Teams will be divided into children, youth and adults. This will ensure that youngsters are not bumped by people bigger and stronger than themselves. The children’s group is limited to those of a school-going age and will start at 8.30am with teams of similar ages scheduled to play each other. The adults (16+ years) will start at 11.30am and finish at 4pm.

Throughout the day, there will be food and drinks on sale, so remember to bring some cash.

Teams must pre-register so that match scheduling can be done. Entry per team is R500, which can be done EFT, cash or credit card on the Letcee website. This will give you the chance to play a minimum of two games (15 minutes each).

Email ecd@letcee.org for more information or to enter your team.

Funds raised will contribute to Letcee's projects running in the neighbouring communities of Eshane, Mbuba, Njengabantu and Matimatolo. These projects aim to support vulnerable children and empower families and communities to build a safe, supporting environment in which the children can learn.

We look forward to having you with us on the day, and appreciate your support.
