Goals Eltham are proud to be holding the 5th annual Canary Wharf Contractors Fund (CWCF) 5 a-side football tournament on 22nd March 2013.
The 5 a-side tournament has now been running for five years and has raised over £100.000 but this is the first year that Goals have been involved in this very worthwhile event and we are planning to add to the success the CWCF have had in the past.
The CWCF has raised and donated in excess of £600k to very worthwhile causes such as: The Great Ormond Street Hospital, the 2012 Paralympics Weightlifting squad, The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, St Joseph's Hospice, Providence Row, Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, Demelza Children's Hospice, The Royal London Hospital, as well as supporting individuals who have specific needs.
The evening will be a festival of football with a 32 team champion's league style competition with a round of 16 and a 16 team plate competition. Players will also get the chance to test the speed and power of their shot by shooting into an inflatable cage with their score displayed on an LED Screen.
Each shot will receive an instant reading displaying the speed of the ball to an incredible accuracy of +/- 1 mph.
Being the fastest shot of the day is an accolade that is highly cherished. Once we have crowned a winner, they will get the opportunity to test their power against our celebrity guest!
Past winners of the tournament include:
2009 – EMS
2010 – Radii
2011 – PAD
2012 – PAD
2013 - Who will be crowned the winners this year!?
