Bosley Tug Of War Competition
Bosley Tug Of War Club held their first main competition of the year at Chelford Activity Park on Sunday 6th April. On a cool, showery day there was a great turn out of sides from around the country, taking part in a very successful event.
Teams represented included; Bosley, Norton, Waterhouses YFC, York, Pontefract YFC, South West Yorkshire YFC, Lincoln, Two Dales, Holland and Widecombe from Devon. This isn't just a sport for strong tough blokes though, there were ladies and youth teams representing Gloucester ACF Junior Boys, Gloucester ACF Junior Girls, South West Yorkshire ACF Youth, Sheen Ladies, Bedford Ladies, Holland Ladies.
Competition was fierce and the results can be found here
Chelford is pleased to host the tug of war as it's a good honest sport and its events always have a great family atmosphere and sense of community. If you missed this event, there's another chance as Bosley will be hosting their charity competition in support of East Cheshire Hospice.
This will take place on Sunday, 13th of July at Chelford Activity Park, where you will be able to see some great sides in action, possibly including Norton from Stoke, who represented Great Britain in the 2013 World Games, taking a silver medal in the 640kg competition. You can also enter your own team for this event, too.
