SPORTING BENEFITS GRANTED BY THE NATIONAL CONI
BRONZE STAR FOR SPORTING MERIT TO SOCIETY
ASD CIRCLE SKATER GROSSETO 1951
The Circolo Pattinatori Grosseto is one of the city’s sporting excellences. A company that in its history has given great satisfaction to the city, not least the seventh place last year, but also the qualification for the second round of the Champions League, which will be played from 14 to 16 December next in Diessbach, Switzerland, and for the current magical moment of the boys coached by Michele Achilli, who settled in third place in the standings and mortgaged a place in the Italian Cup playoffs. The company was founded in 1951 from the commitment of some enthusiasts and skating practitioners coordinated by the president Mario Parri, to whom the rink in the sports center in via Mercurio was named after him in 2021. Last spring, the first trophy of the Osti era arrived, the Under 11 Italian Cup. An extraordinary level of honors, which finds little comparison in the city.
