Hockey fever grips Marinetech
Marinetech at the German Chair Hockey Masters
On 29 November, the office chair hockey championships took place for the eighth time in hall 7, hosted by BKE-Fislage, Ritterhude.
Marinetech sent 9 active team members onto the field, supported by 20 highly spirited colleagues. In total, 64 teams representing over 100 companies from all over Germany battled it out.
The first matches kicked off at 2 p.m. We started the match with our "Rost - FREI" rallying call and pushed ourselves to the peak of performance. The result wasn't too bad at all: we won the first of the 3 group games 6-1, then although we lost the second 1-5, we went on to win the decider and go through to the intermediate round with a whitewash: 6-0! We only narrowly missed out on the quarter final, coming second in the group with a 1-2 result against LBS. We should have the chance to get our revenge in November 2021 though. We'll definitely be taking part then as well!
The Circus Roncalli performance and an energetic dance routine by the cheerleaders of the EWE Baskets from Oldenburg helped to create a great atmosphere. The Chair Hockey Masters are not just about sport and having fun though. As in previous years, charitable causes were also firmly in the spotlight. All donations go to the Bremen branch of the "Balu und Du" project, where trained mentors look after children who don't have it so easy in life.
After the final we descended on the buffet to recharge our dancing feet before DJ Toddi launched the 'after chair hockey party', ending at around 2 o'clock in the morning ...
Our conclusion: a successful event and we'll be sure to take part again. Thanks to all players for their great efforts and to BKE-Fislage for the outstanding organisation!
