Abdal Ahmed, Football Development Manager at Osmani Trust, said: "The THCC started off as being a small tournament for the residents of the borough back in 2005, it is now a household name for many teams across the UK.
"I feel it is a great opportunity for us to show that Tower Hamlets is a multi-cultural borough and a great place to live and work.
"Osmani Trust is at the forefront in delivering community cohesion projects in Tower Hamlets."
Ashik Maih, manager of Shadwell BBK, added: "The tournament was extremely well organised compared to others we have played in the past, there was also a great friendly atmosphere throughout the whole day which was good to see with so many young people from all over London."
Lead Councillor for Culture and Leisure, Rofique Ahmed, was on hand to present the awards to the winners and runners-up.
