LOCAL ORGANISATIONS READY TO DO BATTLE IN IT’S A KNOCKOUT
Local people are being urged to support the teams from local businesses, organisations and groups as they do battle over giant inflatables at ‘It’s a Knockout’ in Congleton Park on Sunday 10th
Teams of 6-10 people will brave the water, foam and humiliation of the commentators as they attempt various games in a fun-packed competition organised by Team Congleton as part of the Olympic Year Celebrations.
The games will start at 12 noon and the teams will be organised into three competitions starting at 12, 2pm and 4pm. The winners of each group will have a final play off to be crowned over-all Congleton It’s a Knockout 2012 Champions. The teams competing include:
Congleton Rugby Club 2nd Team
Congleton Rugby Club 1st Team
Plus Dane Housing Group
Congleton Marks and Spencers
Congleton Town Council
Mattroe – based in Park Lance
Congleton Youth Council
Congleton Cycling Club
Congleton Tennis Club
BoAlloy Running Club
Cheshire East – Leisure Services
Cheshire East – Pupil Referral Unit
Team Congleton is still waiting for a few companies to send in their registration documents, and some other teams have had to drop out – meaning there’s a few final places up for grabs! Contact Glen Williams on 01260 277384 to claim one of the final spots!
Teams consist of 6-10 people – those with only six members will need everyone to enter every game! All participants need to be aged 16 and over.
Spectators will be able to join in a range of subsidised activities including a climbing wall, trampoline trailer and bungee tramps. Cyclists will be able to try out their skills on a cycle obstacle course run by Congleton Cycling club as part of the Olympic Year Celebrations.
Organiser Glen Williams from Team Congleton said: “Many people can remember BBC’s ‘It’s a Knockout’ TV programme coming to Congleton in 1972! Forty years on the sentiment is still the same – people having fun, creating a spectacle and enjoying some light-hearted competition. It promises to be great fun and I hope lots of people make the effort to come down to the Park, join in the fun and cheer on the teams.”
Entrance to the park is free. The competitions start at 12 noon and are expected to finish by 6pm.
