On Friday 29th June 2018, Sports in the Street was held for the third year in a row. The event was organised by Manoj Parmar and the town centre was closed for this great sporting event.
15 sports clubs came together this year! There was a huge turn out from the children of Thame and the surrounding areas as well as a live steel band. The Town Mayor Ann Midwinter, SODC’s Lorraine Hillier, Oxfordshire Councillor Gill Sanders, and the Deputy Lieutenant of Oxfordshire Mrs Marie-Jane Barnett, all opened up the event and then went round to speak to all the clubs and even joined in with a few of the sessions!
Manoj Parmar had this to say about the event: “The event was a great success and it wouldn’t be possible without the continued support of the towns people and the town council. A special thank you to our sponsors Kubota and Lightfoots for sponsoring the certificates for the children. A final thank you to MP Sports for providing all the free sports gifts for all the children! I hope that the kids use the gifts to help them become professional players in the future!”
Every child received a FREE Sports gift, including tennis rackets, key-chains, badminton rackets, table tennis rackets, tennis balls and many more!
The next event Mr Parmar plans on holding is the Summer Holiday Cricket Course at his new cricket ground, Mp Sports Field, on Kingsey Road. For ages 6-13, for more information please visit www.mpsportscricketacademy.co.uk or call 01844 212226.
