The Twedex Group were delighted to pick up a Silver Award for ‘Best Sports Event Organisers’ at the Sports Industry Awards (Asia) presented by TikTok and hosted at W Dubai – The Palm on Wednesday 26th May.
With lots of very impressive events taking place in the region over the last 18 months we are incredibly proud to have been recognised as one of the leading providers in the industry.
Speaking after the awards ceremony, director Andrew Cook says the award shows the dedication and hard work which has taken place throughout the business over the last year and thanked the schools and venues for their support during a difficult period with Covid restrictions.
“We are really thankful that we’ve been recognised with this award. We aim to provide young people with sports events that they can use as inspiration in their school and sporting life and it’s nice to have been rewarded in this way.
“Covid restrictions have put the brakes on competitive school sport this academic year and we are hopeful that we are now looking forward to a return to normality after the summer holidays.
“Our team at Twedex have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure that when the world is safe enough to organise international events we are ready to go again.
Below is a summary of the events which led to the recent award:
1. U11 & U13 World School Games (Dubai – January & February 2019 – 36 schools from 14 countries)
2. BSME Games (4 x events during 2019 – all in GCC – 64 schools from around the GCC)
3. World Schools Netball Cup (Loughborough – June 2019 – 40 schools from 8 countries)
4. World School Basketball Championships (New York University Abu Dhabi – December 2019 – 20 schools from around the GCC)
5. World Schools Football Cup (Barcelona – October 2019 – 38 schools from 8 countries)
With relationships built over a number of years it has been strange not seeing the students and staff over the last 12 months but we have been really impressed by the ways schools have adapted to the new circumstances they’ve found themselves in.
“We have been supported immensely by the schools and venues we work with on a regular basis and we’ve tried to keep in touch with everyone over the last year to ensure that we are supporting each other as much as possible in difficult circumstances.
“Hopefully with the continued success of the vaccine rollout across the world we will be welcoming young sports people to our events in the near future.”
