“Sport for All. All for Sport.”

Decathlon, dubbed the world’s largest sports retailer, is throwing down the gauntlet as the newest Platinum Champion for the UK Corporate Games Coventry 2013.

The industry giants, who employ more than 40,000 staff across a staggering 18 countries and some 540+ stores, are joining in the celebration of sport for the everyday athlete with 100 staff entries into the Games, due to take place in Coventry later this July.

Headquartered in Villeneuve D’Ascq, France, the company was founded in 1976 and quickly grew over a short space of time, spreading into Europe, making its debut appearance into the UK in the year 2000 and going on to challenge new markets in South America, Russia and Asia.

With its specialism in sporting goods, its growing popularity is earned through the stock and supply of over 30,000 different products across 70+ unique sports – as well as the recognition of over 130 global brands both in-store and online.

As a multi-platform sports equipment and clothing provider, Decathlon is undoubtedly a fantastic addition to our list of Games Champions.  Rival teams are anxious to see what the Decathlon team will be entering this July, where 100 lucky staff will get the opportunity to represent Decathlon at the Corporate Games across a variety of different sports.

The V&A Waterfront is Challenging Sanlam by also Joining the 100 Club Members

There is a big buzz in the Corporate world as the V&A Watefront have announce that they will be joining the 100 Club Members together with Sanlam.

Competition is high and the teams are eager to start training and showing off their mean sporting skills.

Seeing that Sanlam walked away with the Sport For Life award and won the Medalist Award in 2012, just to name a few, the V&A Waterfront has some tough competition.

Let’s hope the V&A Waterfront have started shaping up and are preparing in full force for next years Games.

The Sport For Life Grand Award recognises commitment to company spirit, employee fitness and the value of participation in the Cape Town Corporate Games. It is awarded to the Organisation entering the largest number of athletes. Sanlam entered a whopping 189 team member in the Cape Town Corporate Games in 2012.

The Medalist Award is presented to the Organisation which wins the most medals in the Games and Sanlam has set an excellent total to be challenged in future Games.

If you believe, like the V&A Waterfront, that your company has the dedication and team spirit to go up against Sanlam’s impressive record of last year, join the 100 Members Club and sign up for the Gold Championship Scheme.

The Worldwide Corporate Sports Community recognizes the 100 Members Club on a global platform and media coverage includes a web link on the Corporate Games Website which has over 2million hits a year, company logo and a 100 Club write up in the Souvenir Programme. The 100 Members Club are awarded with branding opportunity at selected sports venue’s and exhibition space at the SuperCentre Registration.

Ensure that you start off with Gold at this years Games by choosing the Gold Championship Scheme and join Sanlam and the V&A Waterfront in the 100 Members Club.

So practice until the ball is unstitched, the bat has cracked, the racquet needs restringing and the grass and dirt have become one… and then practice some more.

The Cape Town Corporate Games would like to welcome the V&A Waterfront and Sanlam to the Worldwide Corporate Sports Community 100 Club Members.
