Congratulations to the winners of the It’s A Knockout Tournament 2013, Team 50% Black.
 
ALL RESULTS of the teams are now displayed on this page, please note that they are displayed on the graphs, there is ALL of the scores on the green graph and individual game result graphs displayed as you scroll down the page. You need to click on the graphs to see them clearly. The tournament was really tough and tested all physical skills as well as being fun. Well done to EVERYONE who took part. (Below Left Coopers Troopers were 2nd with 159 points, Below Right with 152 points The Bish Boppers with their adopted member for the photographs Cressida from her Zumba Team)
 

Any feedback from participants and public watching will be gratefully received to be able to improve on the event next year, if we are successful in getting funding. Please email thefriendsofhednesfordpark@aol.com to leave feedback or visit our Facebook page for a LOT MORE photographs of the event.

 
The Friends of Hednesford Park did not get the funding applied for and the event was rescued by Hednesford Town Council and Staffordshire Community Fund money from George Adamson and Christine Mitchell (our present County Council elected representatives) We are very grateful for their support and from the support on the day we can assure everyone that it was community money well spent.

The chart below shows all of the results of all team scores in all of the 10 inflatable It’s A Knockout Games. 24 teams took part. We have displayed the results in charts so that people do not feel so disappointed with their achievements. If you scroll down we have shown each game team results as well so that teams that did not do so well overall can take away their achievements from individual games. We are extremely proud to be able to support all ages and abilities in our tournament, the whole aim of the day is for everyone to have fun alongside all members of our community.
