Game On For Derby Business Community

More than 15 teams from local companies have so far entered the second annual Derby Business Games with limited places still available.

The Derby Business Games will be held on Thursday July 19 2018 at the University of Derby in Kedleston Road – organised by Derby-based Choose Sports and Timms Solicitors.

Derby Business Games is designed to be a ‘grown up’ version of the school sports day.

Teams compete in a wide range of competitions from rounders and netball to egg and wheelbarrow races in the event. The afternoon finishes with relays and a tug of war finale before trophies and medals are presented.

A maximum 32 teams of eight can enter and there will be entertainment, food and drink available for spectators who are invited to come along and cheer on their colleagues, family and friends.

Timms Managing Partner Fiona Moffat said: “The first Derby Business Games were such a huge success and the response from companies wanting to take part this year has been incredible.

“Despite Timms Solicitors going home with the wooden spoon at the first Derby Business Games last summer – we had so much fun that we were keen to sponsor the event again this year to ensure its return.

“Everybody entered into the friendly but competitive spirit at this summer’s event and it was great to see so many people recapture their youth and hark back to their school sports day.”
