On the 13th of May marked the first ever Egypt Corporate Games to happen in the country! 14 of the biggest corporate names in Egypt gathered in a full day competition where they participated in 16 sports & games in an awesome team-bonding event where they battled for The Egypt Corporate Games trophy, which was given to the company with the most medals in each sport! Egypt Corporate Games, brought to you by In The Zone and powered & hosted by Palm Hills Club gave the employees a chance to break up their daily work routine and a chance to have fun, break loose, get a little work out and get to know each other on a WHOLE new level.
With 14 companies taking part, more than 500 participants, and 300+ spectators, more than 160 winners, it was an amazing event to say the least! Each company did an amazing job and the event indeed brought the whole team closer together.
The team-bonding event saw a new side to each and every employee, where they were cheering each other on, supporting and rising high together! You could see on every side how the effect of sportsmanship and support is important; people were giving it their all and more because they are playing in the name of their company.
In a team you could see a company’s CEO high fiving their employees after they’ve just scored a goal in soccer or a good shot at Darts!
Orange Egypt took home the prize with a whopping number of 46 overall points, 5 gold, 3 silver, 3 bronze and 6 bronze medals!
In second place came QNB AlAhli and in 3rd place came Mentor Graphics.
