Sheffield Wednesday take Business Games crown!

30 June 2015


A team from the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme has been crowned the winners of the South Yorkshire Sport Business Games.


More than 80 people and nine teams took part in the second Business Games event at Sheffield Hallam University Sports Park, competing in four sporting challenges.


The teams tried their hand at archery, ultimate Frisbee, touch rugby and rounders, with the Hillsborough-based team coming out on top as overall winners.


They beat B. Braun Medical Ltd’s ‘Soup-a-Stars’ team and previous winners Sheffield Hallam University Sport into second and third place respectively.


The Business Games are part of the Workplace Challenge initiative, a national programme from County Sports Partnership Network funded by Sport England which aims to engage workplaces in sport and physical activity.


Other organisations taking part included South Yorkshire Police, Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School and Sheffield United Community Foundation.


“We had a great time, got to do some different activities and have a laugh – we really enjoyed it,” said Matt Bray, Social Inclusion Manager for the club’s Community Programme.


“It was a good way to get all the staff together rather than just going out for a few beers. It’s been really good and everyone played in a good spirit.”
