The Spurs Zone was a big hit again as thousands of people flocked to the Tottenham Carnival on Saturday.

The Club was a headline sponsor of the event and our Tottenham Hotspur float joined the parade from Eade Road through Tottenham and into Bruce Castle Park.

The Spurs Zone was one of the main attractions situated in the tennis court area at Bruce Castle Park, where coaches from the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation were on hand to pass on their expertise to budding footballers of all ages.

Visitors were also able to learn more about the work of the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation in the community and the Carnival Inclusion Zone ran a number of exciting sports opportunities for disabled people.

One of the biggest community events in the borough, festivities also included six stages of music, a giant inflatable galleon ship and 80 business and entertainment stalls.

Trevor Duberry, Community Development manager Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, said: "The Tottenham Carnival is all about our community coming together in celebration. We've been involved as sponsors in the carnival for a number of years now and it's always a highlight in the calendar.

"We had a wide range of people visiting the Spurs Zone to test their skills and it allowed us to showcase the activities that the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation deliver all year round within our local community."
