2 Superb events coming to Stoke-on-Trent this September

Following the success of the UK Corporate Games 2015 in Stoke-On-Trent and Staffordshire, the city achieved the status as the capital of UK Sport, and was nominated the European City of Sport for 2016 by ACES. Stoke is a prime example of a city committed to encouraging its citizens to enjoy exercise, improve their health and well-being and create a sense of teamwork in the community. The Corporate Games team is celebrating this fantastic achievement by bringing three major international sporting events to the city, encouraging people of all ages and abilities to get active.

Medalists at Europe Corporate Cup of Soccer in May

The Europe Corporate Cup of Soccer took place in May and turned out to be a great weekend of football and celebrations with awards and medals presented by the Lord Mayor of Stoke on Trent Cllr Anthony Munday.

In September, the Corporate Games team is back in Stoke again, and this time with a dragon boat and netball festival. Both events are open to companies, friends and families from across the UK and Europe.

The Europe Corporate Cup of Dragon Boat Racing is taking place at the beautiful Trentham Gardens on the 17th of September. This one-day event is open to all and teams can include both men and women, regardless of their age or level of fitness and experience. Registration will be open for all competitors between 08:00 am and 09:00 am at the Trentham Gardens Café. Following this, all teams will compete in at least 3 races in a ‘1000 m challenge’ and successful teams will progress further. The day will be wrapped up with a Closing Awards celebration along with the Netball players, for drinks and some food.

Dragon boat racing is a great team-building and bonding activity, which brings colleagues and friends together in a fun and competitive way. It is all about collaboration, synchronising, effort and putting the team before oneself in order to reach the finish line. Do not miss this opportunity to race at one of the UK’s most picturesque destinations for dragon boat racing, so form your team now and start planning for an unforgettable, beneficial and fun experience!


Netball - UK Corporate Games 2015
Netball in Staffordshire during the UK Corporate Games 2015

If you prefer land over water and balls over paddles, maybe the Europe Corporate Cup of Netball is a better match for you! You will get the opportunity to play at one of the country’s biggest and best indoor facilities for netball at Fenton Manor Sport Complex. You and your colleagues, friends or family members can enter a women’s only, or a mixed team in this fun tournament for everyday netball players. Playing a sport with your colleagues brings camaraderie whilst encouraging  healthy competition and boosting morale in the workplace. This too will be held on Saturday the 17th of September, with a similar set-up as the dragon boat racing. Participants register between 08:00am and 09:00am  before playing at least four games throughout the day, depending on their success and results. Once finals have been played, medals will be awarded at the Trentham Gardens, along with the dragon boat racers, and everyone can enjoy drinks and food in beautiful surroundings. It will be a great, fun-filled day with sports on all levels, a great atmosphere and you will create long-lasting memories with colleagues and friends.
