Grace O'Malley-Kumar Cup Sponsors

Muscle Foods

We at the Grace O’Malley-Kumar Foundation are immensely grateful for the generous support from MuscleFood for the upcoming Grace O’Malley-Kumar Cup. This event, organized in loving memory of Grace and her friend Barnaby Webber, aims to celebrate their lives and continue their legacy of kindness and community involvement.

MuscleFood, a proud Nottingham-based company, their decision to support the Cup not only strengthens our event but also reinforces their dedication to supporting local initiatives and contributing positively in the wake of adversity.

We are touched and inspired by the support from Nick Preston and the entire MuscleFood team. May 4th promises to be a remarkable day, thanks to the incredible people organizing and participating in it. We are honoured to have MuscleFood by our side as we work together towards a day of remembrance, celebration, and positive change.

Thank you, MuscleFood, for your commitment and support. It truly makes a difference.

SIS Pitches

We are profoundly grateful to SIS Pitches for their invaluable support as we prepare for the Grace O’Malley-Kumar Cup. Hockey was a significant part of Grace’s life, a passion that saw her represent both club and country, and in her first year at university, she proudly played for the Nottingham University Ladies First XI hockey team.

SIS Pitches are deeply rooted in our Nottingham community and partner with BUCS, supporting the national university sports sector. Their support not only enhances the event but also pays homage to Grace’s remarkable hockey journey.

The commitment of the team at SIS to support local events and sports at every level is evident in their participation. It is through gestures like these that we can bring the community together, celebrate shared passions, and honour cherished memories.

We eagerly anticipate May 4th, confident that it will be an extraordinary day filled with sportsmanship and remembrance, made all the more special by the presence and support of SIS Pitches. Thank you to the amazing team at SIS for their involvement and enthusiasm in making this day possible.

Y1 Hockey

Y1 is the official kit partner for the Grace O’Malley-Kumar Cup. Helping design and produce kits for the whole tournament. They have created five amazing different kit designs which you can see below.

All the kits that have been created represent teams that Grace has played for in her life. England, Nottingham University, Southgate and Old Loughtonians.

We would like to thank Y1 for their amazing contribution to the tournament and the stunning kits that they have created. Thank you for all the amazing design work you have done and that you are going to do in the future

Core 37

Core 37 has been kind enough to supply all the players for the Grace O’Malley-Kumar hockey tournament with ¼ zip jackets and design the amazing training top.

Pre-orders for these items have been made but don’t worry there will be an opportunity to buy them at the hockey tournament!

“Being involved in this event means a lot to us as sport is in our DNA, without it we wouldn’t exist. The work that The Grace O’Malley Kumar Foundation is doing is incredible and inspiring. Putting on an event to commemorate and celebrate Grace, a talented athlete, shows that sport can be used as a tool to help do great things.”


During Grace’s time at the University of Nottingham, the highlight of her week was Crisis Wednesdays. No matter rain or shine after a BUCS Wednesday game she was always down there.

Crisis has been running student nights in Nottingham for nearly 20 years working closely with students of the University and hosting amazing nights out.

We would like to thank Carpre Noctum (CRISIS) for sponsoring the event and our foundation as well as organising and hosting the after-party for the tournament.


Boots is the UK’s leading health and beauty retailer with around 2,000* stores ranging from local community pharmacies to large destination health and beauty stores. Our purpose is to support our customers and patients through every stage of their lives.

We would like to extend our thanks to boots for the support with the Grace O’Malley-Kumar Cup, helping Grace’s legacy live on.

Ocean Nightclub

Ocean nightclub has helped sponsored more than one event, helping out with the cricket tournament.

Their club is an integral part of the Nottingham student’s nightlife and somewhere Grace often visited. We would like to extend our thanks to Ocean nightclub for sponsoring not just the hockey tournament but also the cricket tournament months ago.
