Firms urged to take part in games

Businesses in Northumberland are being urged to sign up a team to take part in the third annual workplace games when they return to Cramlington this September.

The Northumberland Workplace Games will come to the Sporting Club of Cramlington on Sunday, September 21, from 8.30am to 6pm.

The games are designed to get colleagues to have a go at something they have not tried before, and will include a range of different activities depending on who wants to take part in what, ranging from angling, archery, badminton, hockey, volleyball, climbing, golf and table tennis.

Each workplace team will take part in eight short taster sessions which will have a fun challenge to build up points throughout the day.

Each team can have between five and eight participants, and businesses can enter two teams.

Once a team has been registered, the team captain will receive an email which will include more information about the day, the activities and a link to star rate the activities you would like to take part in the most.

The cost to enter a team is £105 per team, and can be entered by visiting
