When our client approached us asking for an action packed, high energy and brilliantly fun sporting event, we turned to the classic game of dodgeball and organised an intra-company tournament. Set at the Downs School, Wraxall, the lower playing fields of the school proved to be the perfect site thanks for the extensive flat space and secluded location.
With coaches scheduled to collect our athletes and supporters, they arrived with great excitement and expectation about the afternoon. With a cash bar available throughout, it wasn’t long before the spectators were stood at the side lines cheering loudly.
A scrumptious BBQ was served at half time, ensuring the participants remained refuelled and energised. Provided by our incredible chef, guests were treated to beautiful salads and accompaniments to their core BBQ favourites.
Following a short set from our local band, the play resumed for the rest of the evening. After the winners were crowned, the acoustic band reclaimed their stage and helped guests to dance the night away. With a much wanted cold beer now available to those who had been playing, our guests were able to spend the evening dancing in the amber sunset or chilling in front of the band.
As a fundraiser for The Princes Trust, guests of this dodgeball tournament were encouraged to dress up within their teams. A competition almost as important as the dodgeball itself, everyone had a brilliant afternoon watching teams of super heroes battling it out.
As the sun began to set, guests were taken back to Bristol having had a hugely enjoyable afternoon raising money for this great charity.
