Phallic-shaped trophy for beach volleyball winners

Unusual Beach Volleyball Trophy

Unusual Beach Volleyball Trophy

Since its big reveal on Tuesday, this unusual design for the Beach Volleyball Championships held this week in Klagenfurt, Carinthia has been the target for an array of crude jokes via social media.

The award, which is to be rewarded to the triumphant women’s team, has received mixed reviews regarding its phallic structure.  One Facebook user joked, “Is the base a charger, the rod removable, and does it vibrate?” while other users expressed concern over the ill-considered form of the trophy. Stating that, the award was an embarrassment to the sport and not an appropriate way to reward the wining ladies team.

Winning Awards for the Nottingham Forest 2015 Corporate Golf Day

Winning Awards for the Nottingham Forest 2015 Corporate Golf Day

The Nottingham forest Corporate Golf day 2015 has been hailed a huge success for yet another year. The event, which took place at Nottinghamshire Golf and Country club, saw 23 teams assemble away from The City Ground in a bid to win the Claret jug.

Challenge Trophies are proud to announce we were an official sponsor for the event. We were lucky enough to provide the Claret jug, along with other Golf Trophies – which were a hit with the winners!

The event was attended by Nottingham Forest’s own Collin Barrett and Kenny Burns, along with Nigel Jemson, the 1990 league cup winning goal scorer. After battling it out in Stableford format, the competition was won by Jemson’s Alea Casinos team (87points). The team won a variety of prizes, including a box at Windsor Racecourse, a meal for eight, and of course, the Claret jug supplied by us at Challenge Trophies. We look forward to next year, where we hope to continue this partnership!

Sergio Ramos being courted by Manchester United

With the transfer window about to open, many teams are vying for players from around the world. Over the last few weeks, Manchester United have shown a whole lot of interest in Sergio Ramos. The 29-year-old player has also suggested that he has an interest in moving from his current club, Real Madrid. The Spanish football club did not offer the player an extension on his contract. The current contract will expire in 2017 when he would need to look for a new club. The summer period will be crucial for this player, whose current career hangs in the balance right now.

Raheem Sterling Leaving Liverpool?

England’s fifth youngest international player has had quite a career already. At just 20 years old, Raheem Sterling has already achieved a great deal more than some footballers do in their entire career. At the moment, he is having issues with his first club, Liverpool FC. When he was just 17 years old, the team took him on to play for them. Since then, Raheem has had many successes and played well for the one-time successful club. Now, though, it would appear that the player has his sights set on new goals. Liverpool’s manager, Brendan Rodgers, has to face the fact that the footballer no longer wants to stay with the club.

By 9am, the stadium was already so full that they could not let anybody else enter it.

It would now appear that the team have their sights set on lifting the trophy. Manager, Mark Sampson, glowed with pride after his club’s win in Vancouver on Sunday.
