The Belfast Telegraph Sports Awards are all about rewarding people from all walks of life for their sporting achievements over the past 12 months.

That includes sports people of all ages, and some of them will be honoured with the Young Team of the Year Award, which is kindly sponsored by We Are Vertigo.

One young team who achieved sporting greatness last year will be acknowledged at our Awards ceremony at Belfast’s Crowne Plaza hotel on Monday, following in the footsteps of last year’s winners, St Ronan’s College, Lurgan, who lifted the All-Ireland Hogan Cup in 2018.

In the running for the accolade are horse riders John McEntee and Niamh McEvoy, Schools’ Cup rugby winners Methodist College Belfast; the Northern Ireland Schools football team; and last year’s Hogan Cup winners St Michael’s, Enniskillen, who all have credible claims to walk away with the prize.

Sponsors We Are Vertigo are passionate about team building and creating an unforgettable experience for people of all ages and abilities from the moment they enter their doors.

We Are Vertigo is home to Ireland’s largest Inflatable Park, with two indoor activity centres; one in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter and a second site at Newtownbreda in the south of the city.

The former houses Ireland’s only indoor skydiving tunnel, which attracts thousands of visitors from across the UK and Ireland each year.

In 2019, We Are Vertigo opened the largest Inflatable Park in the world in Newtownbreda, followed by a second incredible Inflatable Park in the Titanic Quarter. Both venues provide a great workout for those who want a different kind of fitness session, working on both strength and cardio.

The Titanic centre also features a state-of-the-art Ninja Master Course, where teams from ages 6+ can challenge each other to the ultimate obstacle course, where balance and determination are key to success. The Ninja course is an intense workout that challenges all aspects of fitness and agility, from the jungle bars to the warped wall.

The Newtownbreda premises also includes the Adventure Centre and Boulder Wall, which are ideal for younger teams who want to build their strength and coordination, whilst having immense fun at the same time.

The Ski Centre at Newtownbreda is, meanwhile, the perfect solution for those that are keen to learn to ski or snowboard, or for the ski enthusiasts who need a refresher. The Vertigo slopes are less forgiving than the real thing, so they are perfect for beginners who have never experienced the cut and thrust before.

There is something for people of all ages at We Are Vertigo, who can accommodate teams of any size.

Getting out and away from technology to enjoy quality time together with friends, family or colleagues in a playful environment is what the Vertigo experience is all about.

The staff are passionate about creating exciting, exhilarating adrenaline experiences that leave a lasting impression.
