Last year’s inaugural tournament at Weighbridge Place was deemed such a success that it is being repeated, this time on Saturday 28 April.
Autism Jersey’s Fundraising and Marketing Manager Caroline Moody said: ‘For me, the great joy of the tournament was that it was so inclusive. Last year we had some adults who have autism, players from the Jersey Learning Disabilities Football Club and Youth Inclusion taking part, as well as big strong lads from the construction industry and some corporate teams. Any age, gender, shape and size can take part.
‘We are really grateful to Normans for supplying the materials to build the pitch, Camerons who construct it, and CPA Global for organising everything on the day, including the entertainment and refreshments.
‘We have listened to feedback and we are shortening the games to eight minutes, adding some netting to prevent the ball going out into the crowd, and we have dropped the entry fee.’
Last year, the trophy, which is sponsored by Normans, was won by a team from Camerons.
Human table football is considered to be one of the best team-building activities.
Players are restricted in movement by putting their hands into some heavy-duty gloves which are fixed to a scaffolding pole.
Teams need six players to take part. The entry fee is £180, with a commitment to raise a further £150 in sponsorship. To book a team, contact Caroline Moody as soon as possible by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
