Staff from the Group Sales team at Leicester Tigers set a new benchmark in the Ultimate Big Boot during Friday’s European match against the Scarlets.
As Tigers secured a bonus-point victory in the Heineken Champions Cup, the club’s Group Sales team scored a season’s best mark of seven catches when they took part in The Ultimate Big Boot at half-time.
The Ultimate Big Boot, sponsored by De Montfort University, tests the catching skills of participants on the Welford Road pitch as part of the half-time entertainment in front of a big crowd.
After a combined team from the evening’s Flagwaver groups representing Bishop Walsh Catholic School and Downham Market Academy made one catch from their attenpts, the Tigers Group Sales took over on top of the leaderboard with a total of seven.
Team member Chris Anastasi said: “It was harder than I thought, but we all had a really good time, it was good fun.
“We’ll take seven, but now we’re thinking we could have another go and get 10 out of 10!”
Could you and your team-mates beat them to it? The Ultimate Big Boot is available for group bookings and all teams receive Big Boot T-shirts as a souvenir. Participants must be aged 14 or over. For more information, contact the Tigers group sales team by phoning 0116 2171 216.
