North East Open/Tyne & Wear Invitational @ Nissan – Sponsorship opportunities

NE Open August 2016In March we ran the North East Open Karate Championships in Darlington. This was one of the largest Karate events ever held in the North East with over 1000 people attending, and teams entering from all over England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, many of these being children.  These high profile events will get bigger and better every year.

We are seeking sponsors and therefore partners to be part of these prestigious Karate events including the North East Open and the Tyne & Wear championships at Nissan. This is a fantastic opportunity for your business to support the local community and gain excellent exposure of your brand. With Karate earmarked as an Olympic sport from 2020 this is an exciting time to get involved as a sponsor. We also have additional prestigious events coming up, including International championships which you could become involved in.

I’m not going to talk about the achievements of TeamGB so far in the 2012 Olympics because I think they speak for themselves. I just thought I’d share this fantastic picture of a fantastic athlete, Jessica Ennis who got GOLD in the heptathlon today. Awesome.
It’s also interesting that TeamGB women are currently out performing the men too… hopefully inspiring millions in the process…
Just a final word, moments like these last forever, and they are well worth all the blood, sweat and tears behind the scenes.

Throston Primary School ‘Olympic’ Fun Day

 

 


Olympic Torch in Hartlepool (2)

Yesterday our little town on the North East coast of England was privileged to host the 2012 London Olympic Torch Relay as it makes its way around the UK. This is a fantastic was of generating interest in the Olympic Games and is a great way of raising peoples aspirations, especially the younger ones – some of whom will no doubt be future Olympians themselves.

Hartlepool Borough Council had organised the festivities which included a number of live bands etc… at the Maritime Experience on the Marina. This was a huge success with claims of up to 23,000 people, (including 6,000 at the Marina) lining the torch route through the town. This support is fantastic and shows how important sport is to everyone – even those that don’t take part themselves.

It was also great that the inspire athletes were all invited as VIP’s to the event, they were introduced on stage by the Hartlepool Mayor, Mr Stuart Drummond who gave a brief overview of each athletes competition successes – the highlight obviously being Savanna Marshall who is a member of the 2012 GB Olympic Team and favourite for Women’s Boxing. Our club also had two of it’s own represented there, with Sensei Amy and Jasmin who are both part of the inspire program.

For those of you that don’t know, the inspire program is a photography exhibition of successful female athletes from a variety of sports which include Regional, National, European, International and Olympic medal winners. The exhibition will be featured in the Hartlepool Art Gallery and across all the local schools, all of which will help ‘inspire’ more girls/women into sport.

There were opportunities to get some iconic photos too, including with a 1948 London Olympic Torch too!

Thank you to all the organisers, the torch bearers and the crowds for contributing to the electric atmosphere…

The K is on the way…!!!

 

I think the poster is self explanatory BUT in case you don’t get it, the Karate community are looking at getting the sport into the Olympics for 2020, which means that a lot of our young competitors could be serious contenders for the British Olympic Team! And why not? Karate is one of the most popular sports in the world with Sport England highlighting that Karate has four times as many known participants than Judo and two and a half times as many as Taekwondo (Active People Survey 5, 2011), both of these are Olympic Sports already.
