Sporting event with a twist (or a spin) coming to the North East.
Over the weekend of Oct 26th, 27th, 28th some of Europe’s best Table Football players will be taking part in an international table football tournament at the Dolphin Centre in the main hall.
There will be a range of competitions spread over the three days for people of all ages and abilities.
There will be a beginner’s doubles event starting at 12pm on Saturday 27th and organisers are urging work colleagues, wives’, husbands, fathers, sons, mums, bosses, councillors to grab a partner and take part.
Anyone wishing to enter the Beginner’s Doubles they will need to pre-register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the names of both players. Entry fee is £5 per person pay on the day.
The beginners event will be based on the 2018 World Cup with participants divided into 8 groups of four and designated a country that took part in this summer’s world cup.
The whole event is open to the public and tournament organisers have declared Saturday 27th as a Family Day where members of the public are invited to walk around and watch matches or compete against the world’s best players.
Children can play alongside adults in the world cup event but there is also a separate Children’s event on Sunday at 11am for under 15s.
