A new event introduced and will in future be added to the yearly calendar of projects undertaken by Round Table Walvis Bay 36!
For the first time the Round Table of Walvis Bay organised and hosted a charity fundraiser in the form of a football tournament whereby companies were approached to sponsor a team consisting of 10 players to play matches in a 7-a-side format tournament – which spanned through Wednesday, 26th & Friday, 28th during the evening from 18h00 to 20h00 and then the final rounds on Saturday, 29th September from 12h00 to 18h00 whereafter a prize giving was held and dinner was served !!
A very special thank you to Lizelle and her team at Atlantis Sports Club, all the meals were prepared on site and the food was fantastic!!
In addition the venue was the best we could have hoped for!! Thanks to the effort by Oswaldo and the groundskeeper at the club for all their efforts!!
We were most fortunate and grateful to have some sponsors and donors for most of the food items – as this was an integral part of the organizing, and made this tournament original within its own right!!! each registered player received a meal EVERY day after their scheduled matches were complete!!
In addition to the medals, trophy and other voucher prizes – after each and every match was completed we had a $50.00 Multisave voucher award for the Man-of-the-Match!!
Sponsors that are greatly appreciated, must ALL receive a special mention and without whom such a successful event can not take place are namely:
Atlantis Sports Club
Namib Marine Services
Bay Fruit & Veg
NPC (Namibia Pie Company)
Another beneficial aspect of the food supplied, was that ALL unused food items were then distributed to Kids Haven, where the many children whom are accommodated would also get some great meals. This organisation is also an ongoing Round Table Walvis Bay 36 project.
The companies, to whom we are also grateful – that sponsored teams for the event were:
Walvis Bay Marine Engineering
Freddie Fish Processors
FM Investments CC
