Another Great Year for the Worldwide Corporate Sport Community

Well, it is official!

2017 was officially the best year ever for the Worldwide Corporate Sport Community.  2017 saw more organisations represented and more participants involved in Corporate Games and Corporate Cup activity across the Globe than ever before.

We are thankful for the commitment and support of each and every participant, every official and every organisation that has supported the Games.  Without people and organisations like yours – there can never be a Games!

The Games programme started in Transylvania in January before moving through Europe, Asia and South America, into Africa, finally culminating with the World Corporate Games in Houston Texas returning to the USA (for the first time for more than 25 years) and closing 2017 with the largest Games of the year in Melbourne Australia.  What a year that was!

Whether you ran, walked, raced, played, partied or just enjoyed the celebrations we hope you had as wonderful a time as we did.  They certainly partied hard in Nottingham in the UK-even when the lights came on!

We are constantly trying to raise the bar, to enhance the Games and Cup experiences as well as ensuring that you have the opportunity to meet more people and create even better memories across the globe.  Please share any ideas that you think can help us to enhance the opportunities, benefits and enjoyment that our events provide.  We really value your feedback and we are genuinely striving to improve, develop and grow further.

So what have we got in store for 2018?  Hopefully more of the same but with a host of great new destinations to add to the programme.  If you are after a new location to sample the Games, then why not try Karachi the gateway to Pakistan in February, the impressive City of Lima in Peru in May, or new Games destinations of Monterrey in Mexico and Kansai in Japan in addition to the existing Games in Mexico City and Tokyo.  Maybe Lyon in France may be a good one for you.  Canada and Ecuador should have Games dates and destinations listed shortly and there is also a new Games planned for Holland in 2019 to look forward too.  Rest assured that wherever you decide to participate we will be working with our teams to give you the best possible experience.

Did you Know?

October 2018 will see us celebrate the passing of 30 years since the first Games was staged in San Francisco in 1988. This is a fabulous testament to the enduring qualities, the international appeal and the universal benefits and longevity of the Games.  The Games remains the ultimate mix of sport, business and tourism.  If you have entered or worked on any Games ever, you have helped us to reach this milestone and we are truly grateful.  We made it happen together.

Let’s hope that there will be some wonderful experiences for you and all of our sponsors, supporters and stakeholders next year within the Worldwide Corporate Sport Community.

Wherever you are in the world, whatever you do, and whoever you are, regardless of your age or level of sporting ability – in the spirit of the Games and in the ethos of Sport For Life – we sincerely hope that 2018 is a wonderful year for us all…

Houston bouncing back after the Storm for the World Corporate Games

It is only a few weeks ago that Houston was hit by powerful storms that caused widespread flooding to homes and businesses in the area.  As the television cameras revealed, the human cost was high and we offer our sincere condolences to everyone effected by the flooding and to everyone who lost friends and relatives to the overpowering waters.  The thoughts of the Worldwide Corporate Sports Community have been with you during this difficult time for you and your great City.

Inevitably sensible questions have been raised by potential competing organisations and individuals planning to attend the World Corporate Games in Houston from the 16th-19th November.  Getting the City back to normal has been the immediate concern of everyone in the area and these aims have been understandable and supported.

An Iconic View of the Marriott Marquis in Houston, Texas

However, following discussions with the senior leaders of the Games in Houston, we are pleased to confirm that the Staff and systems in place in Houston are all OK and the team are confident that the City will recover very quickly. Indeed the resilient Mayor Turner, has reiterated strongly that Houston is very much “open for business again”, with sport and tourism also still on the agenda for this powerful destination City.

Houston is the 4th Largest City in the USA and it has also been listed in the Forbes list of best destinations to visit.

Please see below the Official Statement from the Harris County Houston Sports Authority.

“Dear World Corporate Games Participants,

It’s hard to put into words what has happened to our City over the last two weeks as a result of Hurricane Harvey. We are encouraged by the efforts of the countless volunteers and donations that poured in locally and from around the country to make a difference. We have a long road to recovery and our thoughts go out to everyone in the City of Houston and Gulf coast who was effected by the storm.

First, we wanted to check-in and survey where each of you, your organizations, and neighborhoods stand. Please, let us know if we can be of any assistance to you, your friends, neighbors, or company. We know that so many of our neighbors have been deeply affected by the storm, and we are here to stand by their side.

As we look to the future, Houston will undoubtedly rebound and come back stronger and better than ever. We received some questions as to the status of the Games in light of the storm, and we’re happy to report that just like the spirit of Houston, the World Corporate Games 2017 are alive and well. As Mayor Turner said “…we are getting back on our feet and we are open for business.” And what better way to get to get back to business and show that we are Houston Strong! As we continue to unearth the needs of our City in the coming weeks and months, help us use the Games to make a difference.

What an amazing opportunity to uplift and support our community through sports. Nelson Mandela once said that “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.” Help us show the world just how united and inspired Houston truly is!  As part of our continued mission to give back, we’ve come up with a couple of ways to thank our first responders who unselfishly served so many in their greatest time of need.

Support Our First Responders!

  1. All corporate teams can participate in our Buy-One, Give-One campaign.  We will match each individual registration from your team and coordinate the donation of a free registration, one for one, to Hurricane Harvey first responders, or you can use the Buy-One, Give-One to distribute to unsung heroes in your own community.
  2. Can’t participate?  You can Donate Registrations to First Responders.  We will distribute and coordinate the teams on your behalf.

We are looking forward to bringing our community together and opening our doors to others for a weekend of fun, team building, and celebration!

Sincerely,

Harris County Houston Sports Authority”

 

 

 

 

As you can see, there is an inspiring message from Houston and a powerful cause and we are all hopeful that this can be one of the most uplifting and wonderful World Corporate Games to date.  The Organising Committee strongly believe that they will be ready to welcome each and every one of you to participate in the Games in November.

Thank you for your support and once again our best wishes go to everyone troubled by the storms, which are hopefully now behind them.  Hope to see you in Houston soon…

Asia Pacific Corporate Games in Tokyo Set To Be Huge And Opportunity is Everywhere

With the Worldwide Corporate Sport Community growing all of the time it is no wonder that larger and larger Games are being staged in great destinations around the world.  The Team in Tokyo look set to be on track for a massive Games again this year after really successful events in 2016 and 2015.  The great news is that members of the Worldwide Corporate Sport Community from around the World can take advantage of sponsored entry fees into the Asia Pacific Corporate Games if they travel to Tokyo for this exciting event.  The Team in Tokyo are keen to showcase this impressive City and the powerful Games to visitors from any destination.

Tokyo opened up entries on the 18th of April and almost immediately the first 2000 entrants had registered to be involved, which shows the great appeal and popularity of the Games there.

Baseball
                                                               Baseball Sold Out in Minutes

The Games this year will feature 11 great sports including a new Japanese favourite of “jump rope” which looks like fabulous fun and a serious work out too! Baseball, Softball and Volleyball reached capacity quickly as always but the ever-popular Futsal and Relay Marathon have plenty of space as a result of the impressive facilities that the team have been able to source.  Plus the celebrations in Tokyo are always spectacular with top class entertainers offering multiple genre’s of entertainment for visitors of all tastes to enjoy.  The atmosphere is always electric and as you can see by the image everyone gets into the swing of the action!

However, it could be that November sees the largest number of entrants of any month this year with 7000 predicted in Tokyo, around 10,000 entrants possible in Melbourne Australia in addition to the potentially huge World Corporate Games in Houston, Texas, USA sandwiched in between. Abu Dhabi could be another great destination for you if you want the warmth of the Middle East.

The Magic Bank Account…

The magic bank account

Imagine that you won the following prize in a contest:

Each morning your bank would deposit £86,400 in your private account for you to spend.
However there were some rules:

1. Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.

2. You can’t transfer money into another account, you can only spend it.

4. Each morning when you wake up, the bank puts another £86,400 in your account.

5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time. It can simply say ‘game over’ and close the account and you won’t get a new one.

What Would You Do?
You would buy anything and everything you wanted. Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself.

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning.
Actually, this game is real, each of us is already a winner of this prize and we just can’t seem to see it.
The prize is time.

1. Each morning we wake to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life.
2. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is not credited to us.
3. What we haven’t used up that day is forever lost.
4. Yesterday is forever gone.
5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time without warning.

So, what will you do with your 86,400 seconds?
Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in pounds.
Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life!
Here’s wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day. Start spending.

Inspirational

NB- The Games Staff were not the author’s of this original concept and we have been unable to reference who put it together first.  It was sent to us and we all liked it so wanted to share it with you…Hope it inspires you too.

The inaugural World Corporate Games was staged in San Francisco in 1988 and a further two World Corporate Games followed in Concorde California and Hawaii in 1989 and 1990 respectively. Since then over 1 million Corporate athletes have represented over 26000 organisations in numerous Corporate Games around the globe in impressive Cities like London, Johannesburg, Moscow,  Mexico City and Kuala Lumpur to name a few. Houston, one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the United States, boasts a population of nearly six million people and its reputation for hosting world-class, large-scale sporting events continues to grow. In February 2017, the eyes of the world will be tuned in to Houston for Superbowl LI, which will attract over 100 million viewers and over 1 million visitors to the City.

Janis Burke, CEO of Harris County – Houston Sports Authority said “We are honored to welcome thousands of athletes from across the globe for the World Corporate Games.  Houston is a multicultural city with rich international ties and true Texas hospitality. Our goal is to make the World Corporate Games 2017 the best in the history of the event.”

The proposed sport programme will offer over 20 sports, including Worldwide Corporate Games Community favourites such as: Soccer 6’s & 11’s, Golf, Tennis and Dragon Boat racing, as well as being complemented by a variety of popular local sports, such as: Kickball and Stand-Up Paddle Boarding.  The sports programme incorporates a great mix of sports for everyone regardless of their sporting ability and it will offer genuine business opportunities and fun for everyone involved.

Doug White – Global Partnership Director at the Corporate Games Headquarters commented, “We’re extremely excited to be bringing our flagship event to Houston in 2017, it is a fantastic city with a dynamic business community and great sports facilities. Houston will be the 5th Corporate Games in the US calendar for 2017 and promises to be one the biggest World Corporate Games ever.”

The US Corporate Games Team is working actively with the Harris County Sports Commission to finalise the venues and engage with local businesses in the area.  The US Team intend to leverage the George R. Brown Convention Center (GRB) as the hub of most of the Corporate Games activities, including the SuperCentre Celebration and the Grand Parade of Athletes. With 1.2 million square feet of exhibition, registration and meeting space, the GRB ranks among the 10 largest convention facilities in the USA making it the perfect meeting and focus point for the Games.

It’s been a phenomenal year for the Corporate Games!

merry xmas card

2015 has been a fantastic year for us at the Corporate Games! We have managed to stage huge Games all over the world, from Stoke and Staffs to Sydney,Transylvania to Tokyo Each Games has been different but each has been a wonderful success in it’s own special way.

The Games has always sought to improve the health and wellbeing of staff from businesses of all shapes, sizes and sectors, and this year has been no exception. Your feedback has been brilliant and so motivating; we can clearly see the positive impact that the Games has made in the workplace to so many organisations around the world by encouraging employees to be active and take up sport whilst having a great time with your colleagues.

The year kicked off with a bang with a brand new Games in Asia. The Okinawa Corporate Games was a resounding success in its inaugural year.  The Corporate Games Team in Okinawa did an amazing job of organising and preparing the Games and it has to be applauded for the incredible welcome that they gave entrants from all across the world as well as the precision of the event delivery.  Hundreds of organisations across Japan fully embracing the Games and all it has to offer. The Games saw teams of all sizes come together for a weekend of fun and sporting competition, everyone had such a good time and this success has built a strong platform for the Games on the Island in 2016 and beyond.

In the UK, the summer was once again another huge season. With the World Corporate Cup of Soccer taking place in May in association with West Ham United FC at Upton Park and the UK Corporate Games taking place in June, hosted by Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. Both events were hailed as hugely successful by the host destination and from all those who took part. Both weekends brought together organisations from all over the UK and across Europe and it was great to see so many existing and new businesses represented and having such a great time.  Furthermore, magnificent Games took place in Bucharest, Cape Town, Monterrey in Mexico, Istanbul and Annecy in France.

However, there were even more major events in the calendar for us this year, with the World Corporate Games in Mexico City and the Asia-Pacific Corporate Games in Tokyo, both events took place on the same weekend in November and highlighted the global reach of the Worldwide Corporate Games Community. We were delighted to see these Games were very well-attended after of all of the hard work that had gone in to both events and its was fantastic to see thousands of people from individual sole traders, right up to huge multi-national market leaders take part in the Games. Mexico City was an impressive host for the World Corporate Games but next year this prestigious Games will move to a different world-renowned City, so watch this space for the announcement of the next World Corporate Games. Also, due to the Success of the Asia-Pacific Corporate Games,   the Japanese Corporate Games Team have confirmed a 2016 Games in the Capital city once more.

November was arguably the biggest month in the Corporates Games calendar this year, or perhaps of all time. With the World Corporate Games and the Asia-pacific Corporate Games taking place at the same time, as well as the massive Australian Corporate Games.  Australia hosts three editions of the Corporate Games each year. In Queensland and New South Wales earlier in the year and then finally in November for the Melbourne edition. The Australian Corporate Games is always one of the best attended Corporate Games and it has regularly attracted up to 10,000 participants from hundreds of organisations across Australia and further afield.

On behalf of us all here at the World Headquarters of the Corporate Games, we would like to thank you all for your continued support and efforts in all of our Games around the world. This year has been another superb year on the Corporate Games calendar, and will be one to remember.

Thank you once again to all those who have taken part in the Corporate Games this year and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We are looking forward to 2016 and all the new Games that have been scheduled around the world, so watch this space for updates in the new year and we hope to see you very soon. To all of you that celebrate, we wish you a great Christmas with all your family and friends and we hope you all have a happy and successful new year with many more to come.

Mexico City was delighted to have delivered the successful bid to host the World Corporate Games 2015 and as the 6th largest city in the world and is a crucial cultural, financial and political centre. The Mexico Corporate Games team have been working hard since the announcement to make it a resounding success for local entrants and for those that have travelled across the Globe; the team have managed to secure the most athletes ever in Mexico for this edition of the Games, so it is sure to have a busy and international feel to it. Team AXA, Sodexo and Lloyds Banking Group are just a few of the teams that have secured their complimentary places in the Games having gained first place winners certificates in the UK Corporate Games 2015. Hundreds of other organisations from across Mexico and further afield like Israel and Istanbul are scheduled to take part and every sport on the programme is expected to be a real competition for the benefit of all taking part.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, the Tokyo team have been working towards the first edition of the inaugural Asia-Pacific Corporate Games, which also takes place this weekend. With over 8,000 entrants confirmed from a vast array of organisations, the Tokyo team have done a fantastic job at securing businesses from across Tokyo, mainland Japan and overseas to take part.  Vodafone UK (who signed up to enter 300 entrants in the Europe Corporate Games Liverpool 2016 this week) are just one of the overseas organisations competing in the Basketball in Tokyo and hopefully this will be a wonderful competition for everyone involved. Tokyo is an extremely advanced and modern City and it is sure to be a great host City for the Games. The Tokyo Corporate Games team have managed to secure a number of venues that are located in the impressive Tokyo Bayside area.  This destination which will be home to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, so it will be exciting for our everyday athletes to have the opportunity to visit these great sporting facilities before the international athletes descend on the city in less than 5 years time.

Breaking News: We have something special in Store for keen cyclists everywhere!

WE ADDED CYCLING TO OUR PROGRAM THIS YEAR!

CYC

Cycling was a great success at the Word Corporate Games last year in Liverpool and resultantly we have been inundated with requests to include this growing sport on this year’s programme. In an attempt to satisfy these calls the Corporate Games Team have viewed a number of possibilities across the region and we now feel that we have found the perfect venues for these special events. So we are delighted to confirm that Cycling has recently been added to our packed 23 sport weekend programme for the UK Corporate Games Stoke and Staffordshire 2015.

There are not one but two cycling event disciplines that you can select and participants can enter 1 event or both. First up we have the challenging multi-lap 40K Road Race circuit AND the following day will see the staging of a difficult 16K Time Trial.

For the 40K Road Race we have decided that the perfect destination is the Curborough Sprint Course. It is a little bit further away from the main venues for this year’s Games but it is easily accessible by road and nestled near Lichfield in the outer edge of the County of Staffordshire. The course has a great reputation for car racing but it is also a British Cycling approved performance centre and this should make it the perfect destination for our Saturday morning Road Race. The road surface is in excellent condition and the sweeping bends and fast straights will make it an exciting challenge for cyclists of all abilities.

curborough-sprint-course-e1377116054476

Then on Sunday morning we have the CTT approved Time Trail race in Lichfield over a challenging 16k to blow the cobwebs away after the Great Games Party on Saturday night! For anyone who wants to get a first glimpse of the road circuit feel free to have a look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=re3z5ttEx-A.  PS- we did not choose the music!
