Corporate Games “Delighted With Outcome”

November 10, 2012

After months of preparation, coordination and implementation, the Bermuda Corporate Games said they are “delighted with the outcome” of its inaugural event.

Hosting the Bermuda Corporate Games from October 25-28 netted 1500 everyday local and international athletes who competed against one another in Bermuda’s largest multi-sport event across 14 different sports. Athletes came from countries as far away as Hungary, the Falkland Islands, Europe, the U.K., the Caribbean and North America.

While the Games may be over, the impact of the sports and the four social events is still being felt. Atlantic Region Licensee, Suzie Pewter, President of the Whitfield Group Ltd., noted “We have received so many phone calls and emails of congratulations and positive comments from participants, spectators and sponsors.

“Companies have already reported an increase in staff morale and camaraderie as a result of the Games. We literally saw the community from all walks of life come together and enjoy every event – both sporting and social events. We’ve learned a lot during the course of these inaugural Games – the things we did well and the things we can improve upon going forward.

During the course of the busy Games weekend, 93 organizations participated and 1433 participants took part in the Games. 11 individual games were played over the four day event and 717 medals were presented. The company with the largest amount of participants competing across all of the sporting events was Argus Insurance with a total of 90 athletes, with the ages of athletes ranging from 14 years old to 76 years old.
