Closely supervised by qualified referees, the finals were full of excitement with Spain succeeding in breaking Germany’s winning run over the last few years. The presence of an enthusiastic crowd added to the atmosphere. The tournament continues to be a success combining networking, teambuilding and competitive spirit.
