So the Olympics are upon us again and we’ve thought of a few ways we can all get involved and have fun with it! The following events will get everyone involved in some kooky team ‘sports’. It’s a great way to celebrate the Olympics and enjoy the celebrations as a team! It’s time to go for gold in the Office Deskathalon!
This Office Olympic event is for individuals where two players from each team will compete. A necessity for this game to work is rubber bands. The aim of the game is to rack up as many points as you can by shooting rubber bands at the target (which you can print out and stick on the wall. To save arguments, mark a line on the floor about 12 feet away.
- Competitors have 60 seconds to grab the rubber bands individually from the pile and shoot them one at a time.
- You will need someone to keep a score card of how many points each team has earnt.
Obviously we were going to include the most obvious game! Just in case the title didn’t give it away, they way to play this game is with scrunched up paper (hopefully used if you’re environmentally friendly enough) and 3 waste bins spaced equally apart.
- Each team has 50 paper balls in front of them. There is a 1 min 30 sec timer and they must get as many paper balls in as possible within the time limit!
- Players must aim to get the most amounts of points possible in order to win.
For this to work, you’ll need stairs for starters… The aim of the event is to run up and down the stairs as many times as possible before you feel like you’re going to keel over and die. It’s as simple as that! It might be tricky if you had no stairs though… but you could replace it with laps around the office.
Office Chair Curling…
This is also a pretty straight forward event to create. All you need is office chairs and a big target on the floor. In order to win you must be in a team of two, where each has a go at curling and pushing. One member must sit on the chair whilst the other pushes them to try and get them as close to the target as possible. In order to decide who wins, you add both measurements of how far from the chair they were together. Whoever has the lowest score, wins!
Sticky Tape Hoop-la
For this event, you will need something to aim the sticky tape on to like a coat rack, a thin post or something like a cricket stump. The aim is to get as many sticky tape rolls racked up as you can!
- Each player will be provided with 3 rolls of tape.
- Players must stand at least 10 ft. away from the target. (Mark it out with sticky tape if it’s easier.)
If you’ve ever wanted to throw your computer out the window, then you’ll probably love this event. You can use an old mouse as a hammer by swinging it round your head and launching it toward a target. Obviously, this game is best played in a car park or spacious area.
It’s up to you whether you want medals and a closing ceremony, but it’s always nice to achieve something! You could also play a song of the gold medalists choice throughout the office rather than a national anthem! You could even choose to have a raucous affair at your local pub for winners to celebrate properly and losers to pretend to be happy for them while drowning their sorrows in Peroni…
We hope you have fun with your Office Olympics and that you send us some video’s/ photos of your events (and ALL injuries resulting from the games!)
