Hogarth Wins Sports Aid Wheelchair Basketball Tournament
Last month, five brave Hogarth staff members joined SportsAid’s wheelchair basketball tournament, held at the Copper Box in the Stratford Olympic Park.
Founded in Britain and first played at the inaugural International Stoke-Mandeville Games – the precursor to the modern Paralympics – wheelchair basketball is a challenging and intense game of speed, skill and cooperation. Following coaching from Paralympic medallist Ade Adepitan, teams from Hogarth and other companies that support Sports Aid went on to compete in a series of matches.
After a hotly-contested final, team Hogarth (made up of Scott Ng, Leo Buckley, Leo Thornborough and Luigi Palma) narrowly beat out competitors GLL to take home the trophy and win the tournament.
