Football for Kids at Planet Football
PATTAYA SPORTS CLUB ALWAYS HAPPY TO PROMOTE SPORT
As most of the members of Pattaya Sports Club play golf and have possibly played various sports throughout the world during their early life, we are all aware that playing sport has many advantages not only to maintain a healthy body but to build relationships, team spirit and an active mind. Here in Thailand many young children, very often through boredom, turn to drugs, alcohol and other activities which are, perhaps not on the straight and narrow.
For many years now, Pattaya Sports Club have, not only been donating funds to the underprivileged we have promoted sport to children of all ages. Badminton, table Tennis, athletics, fencing, volleyball and, of course, football. Providing sports equipment to schools is an ongoing exercise but there are many opportunities to be involved in promoting sport.
One such event took place recently when 24 teams and 300 plus children under the age of 15 entered a tournament along Siam Country Club Road in various age groups. As you can imagine, the competition to win the trophy was fierce but the standard was unbelievably high even amongst the under 9 years old. If their promise is maintained, the future of Thai football looks very bright.
The best player in each group and leading goal scorer were recognized with a trophy presented by the Mayor Of Nongprue, Khun Mai, as of course were the winners and those that were in the frame.
The tournament was arranged by the Perfume House and played at the Planet Football Stadium and Pattaya Sports Club were, once again, a major sponsor and acknowledged with a banner along the side of the pitch. Substantial sums were raised and donated to the Fr. Ray Foundation.
