02 Oct Stafflex’s Footgolf Foundation Challenge
Calling all golfers and footballers, male and female from across West Yorkshireâ€¦
Huddersfield Townâ€™s club partner Stafflex will hold the first ever Footgolf Charity Challenge Cup on 22 October at Bradley Park Golf Club, Bradley Road, Huddersfield from 2pm to 4pm.Â
Money raised from the event will go to the Town Foundation; Huddersfield Townâ€™s official registered charity that aims to improve the lives of children and young people in the area.
Taking the nation by storm, Footgolf is played the same way as golf, except players use a football instead of a golf ball. As with golf, the person with the fewest shots wins.Â

â€œWe are looking for a dozen or so teams of four. Each team can be made up of individuals from the same company or a mixture from various organisations joining together as one team.Â
â€œThe idea is to give people an opportunity to experience this fast growing sport, whilst having the chance to raise valuable funds for the Huddersfield Town Foundation, a charity that is helping to provide breakfasts for hundreds of children across the region,â€ says Nadio Granata, Head of Marketing at Stafflex.
â€œThe competition is open to anyone. Each team will kick off at 2pm and will play the nine holes with the lowest scorers getting crowned as champions. We are also having some side competitions such as â€˜Best Dressedâ€™ and â€˜Blindfold Challengeâ€™. The whole event finishes at around 4pm with refreshments, nibbles and an awards ceremony back at the 19th Hole (clubhouse for any â€˜none-golfers reading this)â€ adds Nadio.
The organisers are keen to hear from anyone around the region who wishes to take part. The cost is Â£25 per person or Â£100 per team with any profits going to the charity. Celebrity players are especially welcome as the organisers are looking to build the event into an annual competition with the hope that it will become a significant fundraiser over the years.
