Many employees relish the opportunity to compete as a team against other local workplaces. So we have compiled a list of workplace competitions across the West of England area. They are a real mixture of leagues and one-off tournaments, mostly organised by local clubs or ourselves. So take a look, get a group of colleagues together and enter a team!
We have partnered with Business West The Initiative to promote this calendar, as both appreciate the networking opportunities that can be created through sport.
If you have demand for a sport not listed here, please get in contact. and we will see what we can do. Similarly if you are the organiser of a competition open to workplaces across the West of England and it is not featured here, please get in contact.
