After the success of last year's World Cup sweep, we wanted to recreate summer sporting fever in 2019.

It's a massive summer with the cricket world cup, women's football world cup (come on you Lionesses tonight!), The Ashes .....the list goes on.

But we've opted for tennis - and here's our Will Ainslie getting in the mood with a nod to legendary angry man John McEnroe. And can you guess who is in the mask below?

Over Wimbledon fortnight the Engagement Team will be on their travels at both hospitals and visiting colleagues in community as we have some fun lined up - and some fab prizes kindly donated by Huddersfield Lawn Tennis and Squash Club and Queens Sports Club in Halifax.

So if you see Sam, Charlotte or Anya on your travels - make sure you get involved. They may even have a Wimbledon themed treat for you!

Here's what's happening:

  • A roving ‘how many balls in the bin in a min’ game - including sessions in the hospital restaurants (Thurs 4th at HRI and Tues 9th at CRH)
  • Give us your best grunt or 'you cannot be serious impression' - you can also send your photos to the team. Email:
  • Guess the (f)ACE in the selfie frame - follow @CHFTThecupboard on Twitter to get involved
  • Strawberry and cream lollipops for all

We'll be sharing photos over the fortnight and announcing our competition winners on the 18th of July in CHFT Weekly.

Want to know what else is going on around our Trust? Take a look at our Engagement Calendar which can be find in The Cupboard.
