Here at the Cape Town Corporate Games office we understand that everyone has busy schedules existing of deadlines, meetings, kids, exercising and still finding a moment to spend time with loved ones. This is why we have decided to help.

Instead of adding more pressure to your already hectic lives we have decided to give you an a- z guide into the Corporate Games to ensure you know exactly what to do to be apart of The World’s largest multi-sport festivals for businesses and organisations.

So sit back, relax and follow the easy steps.

1. Learn more about the Corporate Games

The Corporate Games is the world’s largest corporate multi- sport festival for everyday athletes who love health, fitness and sport.

It was established to encourage companies to help their employees to live healthier and more active lifestyles.

The Corporate Games is an exciting & effective way to build team spirit and pride in your organisation.

Anyone can participate, regardless of their sporting ability or age. Everyone is encouraged to play in the multi- sport competition and remain active in sport whilst networking at the same time.

Remember, a participant is not required to be an employee. Colleagues, clients, retirees, spouses, family, friends, full/part time staff, associates or partners may enter.

The Games is a international event and it is staged throughout the year in different countries. It has been played on 5 continents, in 25 countries, 53 cities, attracting over 1 million participants and uniting 20,000 companies.

The Corporate Games is the ultimate mix of sport, business and tourism.

2. Spread the News

Create interest amongs your colleagues. Inform them about the benefits of being part of the Games and getting fit for business. The Games staff will gladly provide you with brochures, emails flyers, websites, DVD and supporting materials.

3. Choose your Sports

Get all the participants together and decide who wants to play what sport. There are 15 sports to choose from. Some are individual and some are in teams. One sport per participant.

4. Choose Leaders

If you do not already have a team leader, choose one. This person will be responsible for all participants of your company. The team leader can contact the Corporate Games office and we will provide them with the team leader handbook. A step by step on what to do when, why and how.

Team leaders must spread their workload. As potential participants learn their sport is on the programme natural leaders will emerge. Appoint them as sport leaders or appoint responsible persons in each department across the company.

This is alot of fun. Get all teams together and advise them to choose a name for their team. Once a few ideas have been given, let the mayority vote be the winning name.
