Charity Pool Tournament – The results!

pool 2










On 26 January we held our first dedicated charity fundraiser for the SIA, a pool tournament which took place at Allstars Sports Bar. Kindly sponsored by Anexsys and with equally kind prize donations from our sponsor, the venue and Wessex Searches a truly pot-tastic time was had by all!

32 players of all abilities were randomly pitted against each other in a singles knockout competition. First round casualties had a second chance to impress in the doubles plate competition and the ever-competitive legal community didn’t disappoint in the speed pool competition. Great networking, great sportsmanship and great fun!

Thanks to all involved and congratulations to the winners; Richie Rees of Paragon Costs in the individual competition, Michael Dendy of DLG Legal and Ana Matos of Paragon Costs in the doubles and Michael Dendy who potted 10 balls in a minute to win the speed pool. I can also now reveal that the team winners on the night were…….drumroll please…….Paragon Costs!!!

Final totals are yet to be confirmed but we believe around £450 was raised for the SIA. Watch this space for similar events later in the year.
