Northamptonshire Sport and partners are challenging companies in the county to enter a team into Northants Corporate Games - 20 Companies:12 Events.

All that's needed is a team of willing volunteers who want to get active and have some fun. There are events in archery, athletics, badminton, basketball, fencing, football, golf, hockey, sailing, table tennis, touch rugby and volleyball.

Participants don’t have to be experts as each session is run by the respective Sports Governing Body and local clubs. Coaches will guide groups through the rules and help them plan their tactics.

Jo Danvers, Northamptonshire Sport Partnership said “We are looking for people who either already enjoy these sports or would like to try something new. 20 Companies:12 Events is a great team building opportunity and a chance to have some fun. You never know, we might discover a new Ben Ainslie or Jessica Ennis.”

20 Companies:12 Events is open to all Northamptonshire workplaces, with the target of at least 20 companies taking part in as many sports as they choose.

There is a small charge from £20 upwards for each team depending on how many sports they decide to try.
