North-east firms are being urged to take part in the inaugural Aberdeen Corporate Games, which have been launched by Aberdeen Sports Village (ASV).

The competition will see teams compete in a range of sporting events between May and September.

ASV said it had launched the initiative to promote a healthy and active workforce, benefiting firms through lower absence rates.

Duncan Sinclair, ASV chief executive, added: “As business optimism begins to return to the north-east we recognised that there was a space in the market for a corporate-type challenge, and the timing of this launch felt right as more companies place staff welfare and wellbeing at the top of their agenda.

“There is also a growth in adventure sport and an appetite to try something different, so the first Aberdeen Corporate Games will provide the opportunity to give new sports a go with expert support.”

The games include a team rowing challenge, table tennis, touch rugby, diving, football and volleyball and will culminate in a Highland games closing ceremony on September 7, with fun events such as tug of war.
