Last weekend, Medibank took part in the annual Australian Corporate Games. With over 7,500 participants from over 300 organisations, competing over 3 days of competition (18-20 Nov).
What are the Corporate Games?
The Corporate Games, now in its 3rd decade, encourages companies to support their employees’ pursuit of a healthier and more active lifestyle. The Games provide the opportunity for anyone, regardless of their sporting ability, to play in a multi-sport championship and remain active in sport.
The Games are open to all businesses and organisations, with teams from 1 to 1000+, open to all ages and ability levels. Teams include employees, colleagues, clients, family and friends.
How did Medibank get involved?
We spoke with Medibank employee Tenille Oien who organised Medibank’s involvement.
“Medibank has had both a netball and soccer team competing in local corporate leagues for a few years now, and those teams expressed interest in competing in the Games this year. Medibank thought it would be a great way to get our employees active and decided to open up entry to an array of the sports on offer at the Games.”
“The events were held throughout Melbourne and were a great opportunity for anyone, regardless of sporting ability, to play in a multi-sport championship and to remain active in sport, while also fundraising for the nominated charities; beyondblue and Foots4All.”
This year Medibank had a team of 65 participants across 9 sports including; soccer, netball, badminton, volleyball, table tennis, cricket, running, karting & tennis.
We had some amazing results over the weekend! Special mention to our tennis team of Michael Prionas, Holley Tsai, Rob Sklepic and Paul Leffler. With their combined scores, they managed to come away with the overall Corporate Games Sport Award for Tennis!
A massive congratulations to all our employees that took part!
