Playing kickball and tug of war at work

May 26, 2015 Ryan Schuster

A team of our employees competed in the Corporate Cup sponsored by the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce last week.

We didn't win, but we still had a blast. We finished a respectable 12th out of 37 teams of Fargo area companies in the recreational division.

There's something about adults playing kickball, tug of war and ultimate Frisbee that helps to reconnect with childhood memories and experiences of playing on competitive sports teams.

What could be more fun than adults playing tug of war?

Other fun Corporate Cup events included hot spot basketball, a stationary bike race and volleyball.

The Corporate Cup only happens once a year, but we encourage you to tap into your inner child and look for opportunities to get active and have fun at work. Examples include starting up a company rec league softball team, taking short walks inside or outside the building at lunch with coworkers, or carrying a pedometer and challenging your coworkers to see who can get more steps in each day.

Have a task at work that no one wants to do? We suggest a game of rock, paper, scissors.
