Bounce City Cup - UK
The inaugural Bounce City Cup, already recognised as the City of London’s most coveted sporting event, was held in early October 2021 with over 200 bankers, fund managers, lawyers and accountants all battling it out for bragging rights, the trophy and a year’s free supply of Heineken. Our founding charity partner was The Charlie Waller Trust which supports young people in the UK suffering from depression. This was a cause very close to our hearts at State of Play given the mental health challenges that the whole hospitality industry faced during the pandemic with our businesses closed and our team members on furlough for long periods of time.
This year, Bounce City Cup 2023 celebrated the comeback of the City’s premier Ping Pong tournament. Teams from all around the Square Mile passionately competed for the top spot while wielding their paddles, all in support of the remarkable charity YUAF (Young Urban Arts Foundation). The City’s most prestigious trophy was up for grabs, with YUAF, a charity that has empowered and assisted more than 21,000 young people, as this year’s beneficiary.
