Sports News – March 2012

Dear all,

I’ve recently received some interest about the return of the CIPA Informals softball league.  If anyone would be interested in participating in such a league then please drop me an email and we’ll get some teams together before the summer burns out – so hopefully by the end of April so that the league can commence in May. 

Matches will most likely be played in Hyde Park on a weekday evening and are open to all so please ask any support staff who may also be interested.  Lastly, the people on a single team need not necessarily be all from the same firm so if you can’t get a group together drop me a line anyway and I’ll put you in touch with others in your situation.  From what I’ve been told teams should “comprise” a minimum of six people.

Best wishes,


New Sports Coordinator appointed

Steven Charlton (a keen runner and a frequenter of the South Bank University gym located in London’s delightful Elephant and Castle area) has now taken up the role of sports co-ordinator for the 2011/2012 CIPA Informals committee.

Steven would like to remind all readers (in case they weren’t already aware) that this year is a big one for sport.  How could anyone forget that the Olympics will be taking place in our beloved capital London, that Bruno Senna will be driving for Williams, the European Football Championships are coming up this summer,  and probably most importantly of all – wait for it – Newcastle United are sixth in the league at the current time of writing.

Readers can now look forward to another occurrence of the annual five-a-side tournament which takes place towards the end of July/August.  Furthermore, with Steven as our sports co-ordinator we can also look forward to some paintballing events and perhaps a day of outdoor sporting activities at one of the Go Ape centres located nationwide if you’re feeling strong.

Keep an eye out for notices of upcoming events in later editions of the Yellow Sheet and if you have any suggestions for a sporting event that you would like to see organised Steven invites you to get in touch with him (via the “Contact” tab at the top of this blog).

Sports Update – November 2011

The sports activity for the 2011/12 committee year will continue as usual. We will have inter-firm softball in the summer as well as the main event of the year – The CIPA Informals’ Football Tournament.

The football tournament will take place in late summer, so if you are interesting in taking part, keep an eye out on the Yellow Sheets to watch for the announcement. Additionally there are both the squash ladder and the CIPA cricket team. If you would like to know more about any of these sporting events please email Candice.Terblanche[at] and I will send you more information.

Additionally the role of sports co-ordinator is still open. If you are interested in this role, please contact me at the above address.
