This year, the Otago Secondary School Sports Association (OSSSA) ran Have-a-go days. And we, from Foosball Dunedin, offered a foosball tournament for interested pupils.
The foosball tournament was kindly hosted by the Unipol. In total, 50 pupils from 4 Dunedin high schools joined and played on 5 Leonhart Tournament Foosball tables.
After a short introduction into foosball and some basic rules, the pupils tested their newly gained knowledge via a quick quiz. We then started with a practice tournament until lunch time. And after lunch, the real tournament started. The tournament style was MonsterDYP (Draw Your Partner) where the partner and opponents were always randomly drawn by the tournament software kickertools.
The three winners of the tournament came from King’s High School (1st and 2nd place) and Bayfield High School (3rd place).
Overall, this year’s tournament went very smoothly and we are looking forward to running another foosball tournament for secondary schools again next year.
