We are delighted to welcome World Champion table football player, Francesco Bonnano to this year’s Extreme Medicine Conference, invited by conflict mediation specialist, Emily Knox, who is also an international standard table football player and promotes the sport to improve social cohesion across the globe. Emily in her role as President of the International Table Soccer Federation (ITSF) Education Commission, works in partnership with Peace & Sport to introduce table football into public schools and centres that promote disaster preparedness, most recently in the Great Lakes of Africa and is currently working on a new project for Nepal.
Foosball for wheelchair users, ‘wheelfoos’ is already a big sport in Italy and the Extreme Medicine Conference is delighted to offer Emily and Francesco a platform to highlight how it could be fantastic addition to hospitals and recovery centres across the UK.
Francesco has offered to train any wheelchair users who would like to try out the table at the exhibition stand and has offered up a ‘Beat the Champ’ challenge, playing two non-disabled people, if you feel you’re ready for him!
