Hockey on office chairs – what was initially a crazy idea has turned into a serious event over the last ten years. And it's something that we at Marinetech are always very enthusiastic about!
The seventh 'German Chair Hockey Masters' was a resounding success. It was a terrific experience, attracting almost one thousand participants and fans. Once the sporting competitions had come to an end, everyone came together for the after-show party, which was great fun and provided a wonderful opportunity to spend time together – both within the teams and with the other competitors!
This year's event was the first time that a team won the coveted title for the second time. Having already taken the top spot on the podium back in 2011, the 'Chairleader' team from the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials (IFAM) repeated this triumph on 10 November in Hall 7 of Bremen Exhibition Centre.
Securing a clear 7:1 victory, the second-time winners prevailed in the final against 'Die Automatisierer' from Aukos. While the atmosphere was very much one of celebration, the focus was really on the charitable cause. The proceeds generated by the seventh 'German Chair Hockey Masters' will be donated to Bremer Fonds e. V. The association devotes its energies to educating and training young people and to working against violence and crime.
