We are thrilled to announce that once again we are hosting one of our most favorite events, ”ITS A KNOCKOUT!!’
This is always a fantastic day of fun, foam, and lots of laughs, and all for a wonderful cause – our special babies and children at Zoë’s Place.
WHERE IS IT HELD? – The event will be held at the TIBS sports ground ( Thornaby and Ingleby Barwick Football Club, Thornaby Road) on the way into Ingleby Barwick
WHEN? – Saturday the 21st of May 2016.
HOW MUCH IS IT TO ENTER – Registration is just £10 (NON REFUNDABLE) which helps us cover the cost of your team teeshirt which we will have printed with your chosen team name, water, sponsor sheets and fundraising pack
DO I NEED TO RAISE MONEY?Although this is a fantastic fun day, the ultimate aim is to help us raise much needed funds for Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice. We do realise however that times are hard, so we ask each of you to pledge to raise £50 which we think is a reasonable amount – although if you raise more than that then brilliant!
We kindly ask you to send any raised funds to us within 8 weeks of the event – either send it to us in a cheque, or you could pop in with the money. You can also register with Justgiving and do all your fundraising online if you prefer!
HOW MANY PEOPLE DO I NEED IN MY TEAM? We need TEN people per team, and ask one of you to be ‘team captain’ as this makes it easier if we need to contact you for any reason. We also need you to come up with a team name – it can be as simple or as wacky as you like – as long as we can fit it on the back of your teeshirts!
WHICH COMPANY SUPPLIES THE EQUIPMENT FOR THE DAY? Your safety and enjoyment is of paramount importance to us, so we naturally only use the very best! ‘Graham Fisher’s International ‘It’s A Knockout’ team were the very first company to take the ex-BBC props on the road from the original Its A Knockout TV programme. They have continually developed new ideas and equipment every year, providing highly individual inflatables,games and challenges.
They are without doubt the biggest & most professional It’s A Knockout company on the road. and always put on a brilliant show.
DO I NEED TO BE REALLY FIT? You need to be in good health, but this isn’t the Great North Run! As long as you are reasonably fit you shouldn’t have a problem – if you can manage on a bouncy castle then you can manage this course!
HOW CAN I REGISTER? It works best if one of your team takes on the role on of ‘Team Captain’, to give us a main point of contact.
Your Captain will be sent a pack which will contain ten registration forms, one for each team member taking part. We need the name, address, age and teeshirt size of EACH individual taking part in the event.
The forms must be returned with the £10 pp fee ( This seems to work better if the Team Captain collects the forms and fees altogether and then gets them to us so you can make sure everyone has signed up and paid!)
Once we have the £100 total team fee, your team place is confirmed. We can then send out sponsor forms and teeshirts to each individual, or if you prefer we can post them all out to the Team Captain who can then distribute them among your team (this helps us save on postage costs!)
We will contact you nearer the date of the event to give you a specific registration time. This will depend on how many teams we have taking part, so we may not be able to give you a time until a week before the event.
For an ITS A KNOCKOUT pack of Registration forms please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your FULL POSTAL ADDRESS INCLUDING postcode. You can also reserve your team places immediately over the telephone by calling 01642 457985 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
PLEASE NOTE THAN WE CANNOT GUARANTEE YOUR TEAM PLACES UNTIL WE HAVE RECEIVED YOUR £10 PP REGISTRATION FEE. Places will be filled on a first come first served basis, and as they tend to fill up quickly we recommend that you make payment as soon as possible to secure your entry. REQUESTING A REGISTRATION PACK DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY GUARANTEE YOU A TEAM PLACE, YOU MUST RETURN THE FEE TO GUARANTEE YOUR PLACE!!
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST? We will have two shows -(* THE FOLLOWING TIMES AND TIMINGS NEED TO BE CONFIRMED!) the morning show will require participants to register by 9.30am for a 10am start, and it usually takes around two hours to complete the competition. The afternoon show requires registration by 1.30 for a 2pm start.
IS THIS FOR CORPORATES AND COMPANIES ONLY? No! It IS a great team building day, so is perfect for companies, however if you want to get together with your family or your friends then that’s fine!
IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE LIMIT? Yes, for insurance purposes you must be at least 16 years of age on the day of the event.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING ON THE DAY? A change of clothes/shoes and a towel! It is best to compete in something you find easy to move in such as shorts or leggings. You will be provided with a teeshirt with your team name printed on the back. We will have changing facilities available for you to change into something dry after the event. YOU WILL GET WET!!!
CAN MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS COME AND CHEER US ON? Of course!! The more the merrier! There will be refreshments available from the clubhouse ( hot and cold drinks, bacon butties etc)
IS THERE PARKING AVAILABLE? The venue does have parking, however if this fills up we would suggest you park on Teesside Industrial Estate and walk over to the venue. We would ask you to car share where possible.
