King’s House Sports Ground, Chiswick

Visit event website


Established in 2008, with 10 hotels playing football in Hyde Park
with jumpers for goalposts and scores on a whiteboard we started
something that we had no idea would turn into a major event for
hospitality workers across London.

The Dorchester Hotel become the first Champions of the Hotel
& Catering Challenge Cup

Over and over the next nine years the event grew every year  raising
money for Charities within the industry, we have worked with
Springboard, Hospitality Action, House of St Barnabus and the Janus
Foundation.

We included live music to entertain the friends and colleagues,
we added free face painting and bouncy castles to entertain the
families. For several years we have used Kings House School sports
ground in Chiswick and Big Bus Tours have Kindly transferred players
from Hammersmith tube station to the ground.


This year is our 10th Anniversary! And we are planning the biggest party ever.
