For the past 6 – 8 weeks, all across BetEasy people have been taking time away from their desks to train across a wide range of sports all as part of their training ahead of the 2019 Corporate Games in Melbourne which were held over the 22nd – 24th of Nov.
It was our 1st foray into the Games and we managed to field an impressive 100 participants across 9 sports making us the 6th most represented company at the Games!! The best part of it was that the teams brought together people from all parts of the business, often with team mates meeting each other for the 1st time.
Over the weekend the WhatsApp and Slack channels were buzzing as teams shared their scores, updates, photos and cheered each other on really bringing to life our values of Sense of Family & Bring Your Best!
All the training was worth it as some of the crew managed to win a few medals and trophies. Overall we now boast 1 gold, 2 silvers, 3 bronze and top spot overall for our karting team – not bad for our rookie season!
The best thing about the Games though, and something that we’ve been hearing echoed throughout HQ over the past few weeks, has been the opportunity to connect with new people, train together, have a bit of fun, celebrate our wins and cheer each other on regardless of the results! Many of our athletes got a great buzz seeing all the BetEasy shirts around the MSAC and sports fields over the weekend and we look forward to having even more fun in 2020!
Thank you to the organisers and team captains who helped wrangle everyone together and get it all off the ground.
