Global Fragrances Labs joined a new adventure in May. Our company decided to sponsor Club de Tennis Les Fonts, an indoor hockey team. The promoters of this project convinced GFL to get involved into the growth of a new team with a lot of hopes and inspired by a very touching story.
Four hockey players from Terrassa, all of them from the highest National Division, decided to create a team to participate in the Catalan Hockey Indoor League. These players are Roc Oliva (Atlètic Terrassa), brothers Pepe and Ramón Romeu (Club Egara) and Javi Garcia (Junior FC). Close friends since they were kids, they decided to make a tribute to their deceased fathers (Jordi Oliva, Ramón Romeu and Joan Carles Garcia ) by playing in the same club where it all started for them in terms of hockey, Club de Tennis Les Fonts.
Pere Autonell, Santi Morera (Atlètic), Oriol Peremiquel (Royal Antwerp), Franc Dinarès (Club Egara), Marc Pujal (Atlètic Terrassa), Marc Torredemer, Jaume Freixa and Roger Pablo; also very close friends and some of them teammates, decided to join the team and help them to start this new project.
Beyond having a good time playing alongside with their friends, their aspirations are to honor their fathers by converting this club into one of the best teams in the Spanish National indoor competition.
As a matter of fact, everything started very well this season. As a new club, they had to start in the Second Division and were forced to win the Championship to promote to the highest league. In the first round they just conceded one loss and were allowed to play the final, where they were crowned champions after winning Can Salas by 6 goals to 3. This means that the following season they will be playing in the First Catalan Division, with the aim to classify for the National Championship.
