Leicester Toto vs. University of Birmingham 2

Toto set off in high spirits (or is that “full of spirits” as Luca told me, his Captain?!) to Birmingham after a very long winter break.  But ten minutes from our destination there was a sudden change of venue! With Luca and Chloe on the phones in the mobile HQ, this was no problem and Toto arrived before the […]

Leicester Tempest vs. University of Birmingham 3

The Beast from the East 2.0 wasn’t going to hamper us getting to Birmingham. Saying that, Captain Sense of Direction a.k.a. Jordan was having a battle with his sat nav having gone to two other places before finding the right sports hall. While Jordan was taking in a scenic tour of Birmingham, we were neck […]

LCKC Summer Tournament 2018: Russia

It’s been six months since the Big American One came to a close having been the best weekend we have ever hosted. Living up to it’s name, we had been hoping to host 24 teams but we were full by mid April with 36! It was a brilliant weekend with loads of new faces and […]

Leicester Toto vs. Nottingham Magic

After a couple of losses in a row, Toto were keen to get back to winning ways starting against their rivals Nottingham Magic. After a fast-paced warm up, Toto were raring to get to the court to get straight into the opposition. This showed with a goal straight from the start from Ant. A couple […]

Leicester Toto vs. University of Nottingham 2

Grab a shirt. Just over a week after a bittersweet defeat by Nottingham Magic, Toto were primed and ready for a home game against a team they had not yet faced this season – Nottingham Uni 2. With strong support from the sidelines, including all 4 club coaches, and another rousing pre-match talk from Captain […]

Leicester Tempest vs. De Montfort University 2

Following a formidable performance in their last game (with a full 3rd team squad no less!) Tempest were slated for another game yesterday. Even up until Saturday, the team was looking dangerously sparce. Thankfully, availability came through and Tempest were bolstered by only two other on-court LCKC players (save for Luca’s brief stint as injury sub). […]

Leicester Tornadoes vs. Sheffield Trotters

A new year and a new set of fixtures await. The first game of 2018 saw Tornadoes take on Trotters at home. The last clash had been a closely contested draw on Sheffield soil. Down by 4 of the squad, Tornadoes borrowed Emma from Toto and, taking to the court were captain Jenny, Vik (just […]

Leicester Toto vs. University of Birmingham 2

Toto started 2018 the way they mean to carry on: Winning! The first game of 2018 against Birmingham University certainly did not disappoint, with everyone bringing their strongest game, heaps of energy and an abundance of enthusiasm. Toto started the match with Matt, Luca, Spargo (c) and Elle in attack and Joe, Andy, Paula and Aine in […]

University of Nottingham 3 vs. Leicester Tempest

Competing in their last game before the Christmas break, Tempest took to the court at David Ross Sports Village, Nottingham – bolstered by a handful of Leicester Tornadoes. The team consisted of Chloe, Claire, Jordan, Hannah, Neil & Emily (on debut) with a helping hand from Tom, Pete, Dan, Abbie & Rachael. At the first […]

Birmingham City 3 vs. Leicester Toto

A glorious start to season saw Toto enter the arena that is Moseley college sports centre, with spirits high and confidence soaring. A little bit of fixtures live pre-match analysis en-route informed Spargo of the ones to watch and led us into battle more prepared (even if half the team got lost after missing the […]
