The Sports Quiz launched a series of events to raise much-needed funds for the New Ground Pavilion.  An electric atmosphere, enthusiastic audience and, of course, the wonderful singing of the 1st XV, all contributed to making the event a huge success.
Thursday, 03 March 2011

An enthralling evening of sporting knowledge and prowess was possibly being held somewhere on Thursday 3rd March, but at the Brighton College Sports Quiz the name of the game was definitely fun and fundraising.  Ian Braid kicked off the evening showcasing the fantastic work of SportsAid, joint recipient of the evening’s proceeds, who offer financial support to talented young sportsmen and women at the beginning of their careers.  John Inverdale was magnificent as quizmaster, encouraging competitive spirit and berating those underhand or rather under-table tactics being employed by certain teams.

Particular mention should go to our winning teams who were awarded commemorative medals for their achievements, and of course the valiant losers of the evening who were awarded the coveted Wooden Spoon:

1st place:  The Andy Gray & Richard Keys Appreciation Society (Team Captain: Alexia Walker)
2nd place: Hutch’s Heroes (Team Captain: Mark Hutchinson)
3rd place: Kevin O’ Brien (Team Captain: Nigel Lambe)
Wooden Spoon:  Meet the Ruckers (Team Captain: Alex McKeown)

The evening gave the chance to unveil revised plans for the New Ground Pavilion to an enthused crowd, including details of site improvements such as coach parking facilities and floodlighting of the netball and tennis courts.
