Although still in lockdown, we couldn’t wait to get back on the River to assist with the filming of famous TV show ‘A League Of Their Own’. The celebs were on the boat in front of us, equipped with a football pitch and goalpost on the roof. With Jack Whitehall in goal our job was simple, get the perfect footage by using a drone launched from our boat… and fish the balls out of the river with a net! Something you’d not expect ex premier league legend Team Captain Jamie Redknapp to do, but we still did have to collect a few. Team Captain Freddie Flintoff was up against Jamie, but you will have to watch the TV show to see which team wins.
After various takes we heard “CUT!” and as usual, we had helped to get the perfect shots and footage in no time.
It was great to be working with Freddie Flintoff again having had him on board previously for Sports Relief. Back in 2012, Freddie was trying to eat smarties with chop sticks, on our #1 Fastest London Speedboats.
Going into 2021 in a national lockdown wasn’t how we at Thames RIB Experience or anyone for that matter wanted to begin the year! We’re itching to welcome everyone back and ready to blast you all along the River Thames past the iconic landmarks in the city and give you an Exhilarating High Speed Ride of a lifetime.
