TenCate supports the indoor street soccer tournament in Hengelo

Provide children the opportunity for sports and games

The fourth Rotary Street Soccer tournament took place in Hengelo from Tuesday, 31 January to Friday, 3 February 2017. More than 130 soccer teams from classes 6, 7 and 8 of primary school played indoor soccer all week and the sponsorship proceeds went to the Youth Sports Fund. TenCate Outdoor Fabrics contributed to the event by providing beanbags, poufs and a tipi for the decoration. 

The indoor street soccer tournament was organized by the Rotary Club Hengelo Driene along with Hengelo Sport and ROC van Twente. The tournament is gaining popularity: this year no less than 139 teams signed up from 23 different primary schools. The aim of the tournament is to let kids play sports and encourage respect for each other through fair play. Therefore there is- in addition to prizes for the winners of the competition - a Rabo Fair Play Award  per category to the team that have been the best sport.

Sports Opportunities for Children
Through sponsorship, the organization strives to collect money for the Youth Sports Fund (district Hengelo-Borne). Youth Sports Fund gives sporting opportunities to children and young people from families with insufficient money to pay for participating in a sports club. Former football player and commercial manager/general affairs manager for FC Twente, Jan van Halst is one of the ambassadors of this fund. The support of TenCate Outdoor Fabrics stems from its CSR policy. TenCate supports the goals of Youth Sports Fund. They want to offer children less fortunate the opportunity to play sports and experience the pleasure of being in a team.
