Maidenhead Round Table host human table football fundraiser

A human table football tournament has raised funds for disability sports club SportsAble.

The event was organised by Maidenhead Round Table and held at the SportsAble club in Braywick Road on Tuesday.

Six other Round Table groups from across the Thames Valley took part including from Twyford, Ascot and Basingstoke.

The annual event, held at a different location every year, was attended by Round Table national president Steve Glaister.

Maidenhead Round Table chairman Adam Fitt, from Lassell Gardens, said: "It was hilarious - a bunch of guys giving each other a shinning to try to play some sort of football.

"Your movement is restricted so you can only go sideways and you end up on the floor."

The evening, won overall by High Wycombe Round Table, raised a total of £601.50 through match fees and a raffle.

Round Table is a national voluntary organisation for men aged between 18 and 45 and focuses on giving something back to the community.
