Date and Host Venue set for the 3rd Annual Cape Town Corporate Games

Banner Brochure front page

South African sports enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that the date for the 2014 Cape Town Corporate Games has been confirmed. The third annual Cape Town Corporate Games will be held from 05-08 June 2014 at the V&A Waterfront and other supporting venues, bringing thousands of business visitors to the Mother City.

3rd South Africa, organisers of the Cape Town Corporate Games , are proud to welcome the V&A Waterfront back on board as the official host venue for this prestigious event.

David Green, CEO V&A Waterfront commented, “This year, the V&A Waterfront not only successfully hosted Corporate Games 2013 but also actively participated in a variety of events. We are proud to confirm our involvement in 2014, and having seen the positive impact on team spirit, we encourage corporates across the country to sign up and capitalise on the great team building prospects Corporate Games presents.”

Corporate Games is the world’s largest multi-sports festival for businesses and organisations, and brings global sporting competition within everyone’s reach. The V&A Waterfront is the perfect host venue to showcase some of the best that Cape Town has to offer as a tourism, business and sporting destination.

According to Nicole Visser, Marketing & Communications Manager at 3rd South Africa, this year’s event has received an enormous amount of interest from organisations across South Africa and the rest of the world. “Companies are keen to be involved in this opportunity of sporting competition, team building and networking,” said Visser. “The Cape Town Corporate Games is fast becoming one of the premier events on the corporate calendar.”

The number of participants has doubled since 2012 and there were 47 companies taking part in this year’s Games. The organisers are attempting to break the Corporate Games record in years to come which is currently held by Melbourne, Australia where 12 000 athletes participated in 2009.

The Corporate Games was founded to encourage companies to support their employees in pursuing a more active lifestyle. It enhances teamwork and cooperation at work, and provides valuable opportunities for networking and brand exposure – not to mention lots of friendly sporting rivalry and fun!

Tee Off for a Good Cause

On Friday, 12 April, Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) invited Cape Town Corporate Games to spend a day with them at the annual Reach For A Dream charity golf day.

ACSA was one of the many companies that sponsored a hole and they gave Corporate Games the opportunity to share in the experience. The golf day was hosted at the Rondebosch Golf Club in Cape Town.

Companies had the opportunity to tee off for a good cause at the 3rd annual Reach For A Dream Golf Day in aid of the foundation which grants wishes to young children suffering from life-threatening illnesses.

Since 1988, the Reach For A Dream Foundation has made dreams come true for children who do not have the time or health to enjoy their childhood.

ACSA is a loyal supporter of the Cape Town Corporate Games and eagerly challenging other corporates to play agains them in the Soccer 11’s for this years Games.

Thank you ACSA for inviting us to share this great day with you!

Situated in the heart of our official host venue, The V&A Waterfront, where most of the action will be taking place, the Breakwater Lodge is the ideal hotel partner for the 2013 Cape Town Corporate Games.

The Breakwater Lodge is one of the finest hotels operated by the group Protea Hotels. Protea Hotels is Africa’s largest and leading hotel group and are displaying their special brand of hospitality in eight African countries.

Once a 19th Century prison, this hotel today provides accommodation, conference and function facilities, in a spectacular setting that looks out over the harbour and up onto Table Mountain. Public areas and facilities at the hotel include an in-house Gym, Prokidz lounge and Transit lounge, as well as laundry facilities and WIFI Internet hotspots located throughout the building.

For the athletes who are eager to warm up and train that extra mile before the Games start, the hotel has gym facilities as well.

Special packages are available for companies and participants travelling from far. Simply contact the Cape Town Corporate Games office for further information.

We are proud to announce that the Breakwater Lodge will be the sport sponsor for Dragon Boat racing this year seeing as the sport code is taking place in their “back yard”.

We also cannot think of a better place to end of a weekend of sport, business and tourism than at the Breakwater Lodge, this is why they will be the hosting venue for the Closing Ceremony.

The Cape Town Corporate Games team welcomes the Protea Hotel Breakwater Lodge to the 2013 Corporate Games!!

Cape Town Corporate Games Adopt a School

 

Nowadays there are so many charities that need help, that choosing one can be a grueling process. However, for the team here at the Cape Town Corporate Games the decision was quite clear when we heard about the Tag Rugby association. Seeing that one of the new sports that we are adding to our sports list in 2013 is tag rugby, we could not deny the coincidence as well as the relevance.

Not only does the Tag Rugby Adopt a School Programme help children off the streets and away from the ills they are confronted with on a daily basis, but they do this by encouraging the children to participate in sport.

By playing Tag Rugby, the children do not only learn to be active, but get so much more out of the experience. Sport teaches these children to play peacefully among each other, to respect their peers, to respect the rules of the game and the list goes on. Recognising the need for both sexes to play sport together, Tag Rugby deletes the fear of injury as it is a no contact sport.

In this programme a Corporate Company Adopts a School in their immediate area or a school that most of their workforce would go to. Tag Rugby will supply all neccesary equipment, show the children of the Companys’ school of choice how to play, empower a teacher and some students to supervise the games on an ongoing basis and will supply the Corporate Company with a report and pictures once a term on the progress of the school.

This truly is a cause that the Corporate Games believe in and we look forward to be part of such a magnificent initiative. We invite all companies/charities to use the Games as a platform to raise funds for their own charities too.

Staying in the spirit of sport.
