The Cape Town Corporate Games took place over the weekend with great success. This Games has been staged successfully in South Africa since 2012, and has been growing to become an exciting annual multi-sports festival with thousands of athletes taking part this year to get fit for business!
A host of high profile companies took part this year like: Turkish Airlines, Shell, Grand West, Absa, FlySAA and many more, the weekend saw a healthy competition ranging across 10 dynamic sports, including: action cricket, dragon boat racing, golf, karting, action netball, tenpin bowling, table tennis, trial running, soccer 5’s and mountain biking. With fantastic venues and facilities the Games proved to be another huge success in Cape Town and all of the feedback so far has been extremely positive.
Along with the fun-filled and action packed sporting activities across the weekend, there were also many chances for celebrating in true Games style. The Supercentre Celebration kicked off the weekend perfectly at the Grand West Casino and Entertainment World – the largest entertainment destination of it’s kind in South Africa. The Games also saw a successful Games Celebration and Parade along with the Closing Celebration also taking place at Grand West – the official host venue for the Cape Town Corporate Games.
The Corporate Games has been growing year upon year now in South Africa and we are proud of the successes being made and excited for the future Games to be held in this fantastic part of the World.
Watch this space for the Official Results booklet which should be released soon.

Facebook: Corporate Games
We’re undergoing a series of changes in terms of how we’d like to share information with the public, and we see Facebook as an important step in this process.
We see Facebook as our ‘social outlet’ for the information that we generate during the lifetime of a Corporate Games project, regardless of where that may be in the world. The ability to have not only photographs and comments, but videos too, mean that Facebook is ideal for our purposes.
We have created, so far, the following Facebook Pages, that represent a different area of our work, some broad and general, but others are focused and specific.
- The Corporate Games
This is the over-arching Page that provides a general view of the Games around the world. This is mostly kept up to date by the staff at the headquarters offices, providing an angle from a global perspective. (website)
Abu Dhabi Corporate Games
A relatively new Games-specific Page for the upcoming (at time of writing this!) Games in Abu Dhabi in December. (website)
- Istanbul Corporate Games
This is a Games-specific Page, dedicated to the Corporate Games held in Istanbul, Turkey, each year, and is kept up-to-date by staff on the ground in Istanbul. (website)

- UK Corporate Games
Another Games-specific Page, this time one that is dedicated to the Corporate Games held in the United Kingdom, hosted at Loughborough for 2011. This Page is kept up-to-date by staff in the UK offices. (website)

The World Corporate Cup of Soccer Page is Games-specific, focusing on the events of the project. The ‘Cup was held in 2011 in association with Liverpool Football Club, in the United Kingdom, and the Page is maintained by the staff within the UK offices. (website)
