Kanoo Travel's Team B wins Runner-Up Trophy at Delta Foot Golf Challenge

Delta Foot Golf Challenge 2018 ended with an awesome display of Tee to Hole accuracy from Kanoo Travel's Team B which finished with the Runner-Up Trophy held at the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club on 9th November 2018.

The Foot Golf Challenge was hosted by Delta Airlines with the participation of its major travel partners including Kanoo Travel, a member of The Kanoo Group. Every year, Delta Airlines has been organising such various sporting challenge event, attended by its industry partners across the UAE.

Foot Golf is a precision sport, in which players kick a soccer ball into a cup in as few shots as possible. The game is played similarly to golf, with the exception that players use a soccer ball instead of a golf ball, and the ball is kicked rather than struck with a club, working toward a 21-inch "cup" in place of the usual golf hole.

"We were excited to play in the competition with extremely talented players and excellent coaches from across our partners and customers, leading to this award. This gathering also continues to nurture the bond between us", said Aubrey Heldt, General Manager, Kanoo Travel – UAE & Oman.

The winning teams were awarded with trophies, and players from the teams as well as participants emphasized the importance of physical fitness and staying physically active, in such a fun environment.
