Networking with a difference proves a hit
In March we held our first wheelchair basketball tournament in partnership with SportsAid at the University of Birmingham Sport & Fitness centre.
16 teams made up of clients, intermediaries and colleagues battled it out for the coveted Spark trophy. The final pitted Lambert Smith Hampton against the eventual winner Team SportsAid (Tim Lawler, SportsAid CEO, Ama Agbeze MBE, gold Commonwealth medallist, and Kelly Sotherton, former heptathlete, long jumper and relay runner).
This inclusive event followed the 3x3 format which proved a hit at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games and all proceeds were donated to SportsAid to fund the next generation of sporting talent.
SportsAid is a national charity that support over 1,000 athletes each year. Their mission is to encourage, enable and empower the next generation of athletes to achieve their ambitions in sport and life.
