Adeje’s Sporting Stars

It was a very busy sporting weekend here in Adeje and as well as concentrated efforts on the pitches there was fun off the pitches too.
On Saturday the Club Ademi Tenerife were in action against a team from the Spanish peninsula. This wheelchair team showed their true form and were winning from the first basket against BSR Cocemfe Puertallano and never let up the pressure. This was a first division game and the home side showed why there are one of the toughest side in the division. The match was played at the Costa Adeje school, with cheerleading from the Tenerife Tigers.
The Tigers were in action the next day too at Tijoco, where they train. They were invited to cheer for local baseball side Halcones de Adeje – and this could be a ‘match’ made in heaven. The two teams sport the same colours and there was a real unity between the two groups, with some great performances by the Halcones and a sparkling after-match show by the Tigers. Against teams from Granadilla and Gran Canaria, the Halcones were triumphant too, but there was much applause and medals for all the players.
Amanda Lambert, the Tigers coach and owner, was also surprised and delighted to be presented with an award by the Adeje councillor for sports Adolfo Afonso Ferrera for the troupe’s support of Adeje teams, and local Tijoco councillor Esther Rivero was also on hand to cheer on her local sides.
Great to see such a multicultural sporting selection in our borough, and there will be more baseball and cheerleading action in two weeks in Tijoco.
