APCOA’s drive to promote health through sport was a key factor when it sponsored Titans U13s girls’ basketball team to the tune of €500 for a new kit, which was presented by the company’s operations manager Maggie Hornibrook.
The sponsorship proved timely for the Westside Community Centre basketball club – based off Seamus Quirke Road in Newcastle, Galway – who travelled to Sweden on 13 May 2015 to compete in the Gothenburg [basketball] international tournament.
After successfully progressing through the group stage, Titans’ U13 girls convincingly beat the host [Gothenburg] city 34-9 in the quarter finals, only to narrowly lose in the semis to their Danish counterparts.
Neil Cunningham, Managing Director for APCOA PARKING Ireland, said: “When we heard about Titans basketball club; especially their work with young people, we were inspired to get involved.
“As with other sports, girls’ basketball is becoming more and more popular in Ireland. However, corporate sponsorship is important in helping the team to continue to prosper, plus provide a platform for future generations, which really struck a chord for us.
“It goes without saying that all of us at APCOA would like to wish Titans’ girls the very best for the new season,” added Cunningham.
