14th January 19
We are happy with the I Parents and Children Paddle Tournament LAUDE El Altillo School – Cogesur which took place last Saturday 12th January in the paddle courts of our Sports Centre.
The day began at 9.15 am with the first matches. Although it was cold to start with, the players soon warmed up thanks to the game and motivation from the lines.
“This is a privilege for me” were the words of one of the parents who took part in the tournament, referring to the wonderful opportunity to play a paddle match with his son. It is difficult to find a sport where parents and children can compete together, but paddle is one of these. What is more, children usually make their own plans to play and they find it difficult to share moments like this with their parents, especially adolescents.
So they were grateful and happy. They enjoyed a fantastic day with good feeling, sportsmanship and eagerness to be part of a team and give it all on the courts.
All this was possible thanks to the sponsorship of Cogesur and the organization of the El Altillo School Paddle Academy, headed by Paco de la Serna, who opted for a sports event in order to promote healthy habits in young people, communicating values, teamwork and sportsmanship, strengthening familiy ties through practising sport.
At the end of the day the prize giving ceremony took place (See below) and a raffle when players could get paddle material (racket, racket case, sports clothes etc) followed by an aperitif with friends and family.
Final results of the tournament:
– Berta Fernández
– Gabriel Fernández
