Sheffield Workplaces Encouraged to Sign up for Sporting Challenge
8th January 2016
The South Yorkshire Workplace Games is back for 2016 and business and organisations from Sheffield are being encouraged to enter a team.
Almost 150 people have taken part in the two previous South Yorkshire Workplace Games and a number of teams have already signed up to challenge for the 2016 title. The English Institute of Sport in Sheffield will play host to the games on Friday 5 February, from 5pm to 9pm, which will comprise of a variety of sporting challenges for teams to tackle including mixed netball, Tug of War, Sitting Volleyball, New Age Kurling, Duathlon and the Athletics Relay. All entrants will receive a free water bottle and food, with trophies for the winning team and other spot prizes on the evening, for just £100 per team. Teams can have between six and ten members, a minimum of three of which must be female. -We had a great time, got to do some different activities and have a laugh we really enjoyed it, said Matt Bray, social inclusion manager for the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme, which won the last South Yorkshire Workplace Games in June 2015. -It was a good way to get all the staff together rather than just going out for a few beers. It was really good and everyone played in a good spirit. For more information or to sign up visit www.sysport.co.uk/WorkplaceGames.
