Staff Sports Fest 2019

It’s usually this time of the year where we all get excited about Staff Sports Day. The works for the new sports centre has put a firm stop to that, as our venue and track has been removed. In place of the usual Staff Sports Day this year Sport and Recreation will be running a new Staff Sports Fest. This will take place on 21 June. We wanted to continue to offer an opportunity for you to step out of the office and take part in some physical activity.


The Staff Sports Fest will consist of two indoor tournaments, Dodgeball and Volleyball. Each team will participate in both tournaments with an eventual winner in both sports. The afternoon will be filled with fun break out challenges to take part in whilst other teams are competing. Although there is a bit of competition, we’re all about getting you moving and having a laugh with your colleagues. We want all abilities to take part, and have picked two sports you can have a bit of fun with.
