“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.
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.

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.
