We have made the most of the great weather and spent the last Friday afternoon of June in the sun competing against one another in some team building games. We were split into three groups of seven to go head to head in the battle of the fittest or in our case most competitive.
At 12:30 pm we all piled into the Plantation Vans and Minis and drove down to Battersea Park. Once arrived, we were graced with a cold beverage and started kicking around a football before being split into teams. As soon as the teams were chosen at random, all of our competitive sides began to shine as we prepared for our first race. The classic Egg and Spoon Race. After Team Three’s victory from the first race, they went on to win again at the sack race. Their egos were high, and the other teams weren’t having a bar of it. Team Two showed Team Three who was boss and won the space hopper race.
Team Three peaked way too soon and had an epic fail in the three-legged race because the strap holding the two legs together kept coming off and were overtaken by the other two teams. One of Team Three’s team members decided to take matters into her own hands and started holding the other teams back go give her team time to catch up but was then taken out by a Team Two member and his team went on to win again.
It was time for Team Three to redeem themselves and show their strength in the Tug of War. And redeem themselves they did. They won four out of five times in a row before retiring from exhaustion and giving Team One a chance to win a couple. After that, it was then free for all to see who were the strongest overall. After a much-needed break and some refills of their cold beverages we all then went on to play dodgeball.
Each team won a few rounds each of dodgeball until the teams were mixed up and anyone could continue playing if they desired. After all the fun was had it was time to break out the delightful spread from Marks and Spencer’s that was organised by our wonderful office manager Charlotte. There were so many goodies from sandwiches to samosas, wraps and salads. No one had the chance to go hungry with all the food. After lunch we all just chilled out chatting, listening to music and kicking around a football. After noticing all of the team’s football skills, there has since been talk of starting up a Plantation Football Team. Watch this space for one of the most competitive teams to emerge.
