The Maiden Edition of the Odwira Beach Soccer Cup ended successfully with Asenema Community winning the trophy. Twenty(20) Communities around the Eastern Region participated in the tournament organized by the Beach Soccer authorities led by Yaw Ampofo Ankrah with support from lots of sponsors and the local assembly.
The occasion brought a lot of dignitaries to the area and the tournament eventually marked the highlight of the Festival, with Nana Okuapemanhene presenting the trophy to Asenema, who defeated Mampong on penalties after a 1-1 draw in regulation time.
The DCE of the Okere area Hon. Kenneth Daniels was very excited about the novelty and thanked the organizers for being the area on the beach soccer map, promising to do more to help the youth embrace the project and promote developmental projects in the area.
Hundreds of people also visited the area during the two-day event which was hosted near the Asenema Waterfalls, which also attracted tourists and sightseers to the local communities.
