ONE EPIC COMMUNITY

What a weekend it was… We’ve spent the last two weeks reflecting on everything from the unreal Friday Night Lights Corporate Charity Cup to the epic battle between the Everyday and Elite teams on the Saturday. This year’s Under Armour Turf Games Summer Festival was beyond our imagination and we can’t thank each and every one of you enough for taking part, supporting, volunteering and believing in the Turf Games concept. The competition has stepped up yet again and the literal blood, sweat and tears poured on to the turf by this year’s team’s was amazing to watch.

Our headline partner Under Armour with supporting partners Beats by Dr. Dre, BLK BOX and Hearst allowed us to deliver on our dreams for a stand out event. Special thanks also goes to our arena gyms and studios (KXU, Third Space, Gymbox, Evolve353, Core Collective, Farm Fitness and WIT) who brought the enthusiasm, workouts and judges to test and encourage each and every team.  Huge thanks to our official equipment partner BLK BOX for helping find ways to test athletes with world class equipment.

Thank you to our awesome food and drink suppliers - The Green Grill, Fresh Fitness Food, Black Cab Coffee, Dappa, Bubble Brothers, Jubel, Tails and Actiph Water) and supporting brands - The Curators Jerky, Nocco, Barebells and Sport FX- for keeping everyone fuelled and hydrated through the days.  Also The Recovery Room for providing free massages and creams to all attendees.  And of course our bars – Jubel, Bubble Brothers and Tails Cocktails.

Also a big shoutout to FEEL GOOD LDN for providing running repairs to all athletes throughout the day.   

Your support and coverage on social media has been next level and has allowed us to relive the workouts all over again. As always we welcome any feedback so please feel free to email us (team@turfgames.com) with anything you’d like to say regarding the event or what you’d like to see moving forwards so that we can continually push the boundaries.
