North Yorkshire Business Games

The North Yorkshire Business Games brings together teams representing organisations from around the county to challenge themselves and their counterparts in five sporting tasks. An introduction and 'drills and skills' session in various sports are delivered by local coaches prior to the 10 minutes of competition, when the highest number of points, goals and rallies decides a placing in each sport.

The teams also take part in cycling which is a team time-trial around one of the site tracks, with the average overall time of the team counting. And finally there is orienteering. All the teams gather at the end to take part in a mass participation orienteering competition, with teams employing different strategies to accrue the most points possible in a specified time.

The teams, which are usually made up of ten people, are paired up to take part in four of the sports, galvanising and bonding those team members to achieve a common goal, as well as creating a healthy competitive environment against another organisation. The orienteering creates a natural finale with all teams coming together.

After the competition, the winning team are presented with the Business Games trophy and an exciting prize.
