Successful Street Soccer 3v3 Tournament and Golf Festival
- Friday, 17 February 2012
Over a thousand young people and over sixty junior sides recently participated in the unique Street Soccer 3v3 Tournament and Golf Festival that recently hit Cardiff at the Wales Millennium Centre Road Dahl Plaza in Cardiff during February half-term.
The event was organised by Street Games, C3SC, Great Outdoor Leisure Fun, Butetown Sports as well as local sports and volunteering groups from Butetown, Grangetown and Riverside.
Legendry boxing trainer Enzo Calzaghe MBE supported and attended the event along with Wales professional golfer Rhian Wyn Thomas.
The fast and explosive 3v3 tournament was aimed at boys and girls aged 11-17 years old and were played in inflatable pitches to aid enjoyment and fun. Urban street music was played to create a wonderful atmosphere, and freestyle football and Futsal workshops and tutorials were held throughout the day.
PGA Golf Nets were provided by Great Outdoor Leisure Fun (Golf) and the Celtic Manor Hotel 'Ryder Cup Legacy' where children and young people were able to learn new skills and golf tips from Wales professional golfer Rhian Wyn Thomas and Cardiff golf professional Chris Berry.
Football freestyler Ash Randall was also successful in completing a second world record by beating the original record of 'most neck catches in a minute'. Basketball freestyler Tom 'Con Man' Conners also achieved a world record for 'longest time spinning a basketball on a mouth piece'.
Enzo Calzaghe MBE and Rhian Wyn Thomas presented all players with medals, participation T-shirts and certificates.
