Premier Sport hosts floorball cup
Premier Sport hosted the areas ‘largest ever’ floorball cup for schoolchildren in Farnham, Surrey.
Activity and sport franchise Premier Sport has hosted Surrey’s ‘largest ever’ floorball cup for 11 teams of enthusiastic school children.
The sport, which is similar to hockey, is a popular choice for children as it’s much easier to pick up and the tournament was a fantastic chance for children to test their skills.
Hosted by Premier Sport and Farnham Uni Hockey & Floorball Club, the event at Farnham leisure centre saw 29 matches being played in just two hours! Ultimately Rowledge Primary School scooped the top prize, but it was a close battle with 2nd place Walsh Primary School’s nipping at their heels. Walsh’s net minder showed incredible reaction times to see off plenty of close calls and in the end, a single goal was all that separated the two teams.
Premier Sport instructs many of the children in their PE lessons or after school clubs and floorball was chosen as an excellent sport for them as it’s a much easier version of hockey. Rowledge’s success was partly in thanks to Premier Sport, which runs an after-school floorball club for budding players in the school.
