Choosing your events:

A good set of games can get everyone in the organisation involved, whether that be virtually, or in the office. Check out some of our fun ideas below:

At the Office

Paper Plane Throw: Much like the Javelin, employees compete to see who can throw a paper plane the farthest.

Desk Chair Relay: Set up a relay race where participants must navigate round a course while seated in an office chair. Fastest team time round the course wins!

Basketball Bin Shoot Out- Using scrunched up balls of paper, shoot them into the bin. Award points for most shots in 30 seconds, furthest distance thrown, and most stylish shot!

Desktop Bowls – See who can roll a ball closest to the end of the table without it rolling off!

Target Shooting – Find out who has the best aim! Using a novelty gun, darts, or elastic bands, see who can get closest to bullseye.


Opening Ceremony – Open your Office Games with a competition for best team name.

Walk / Cycle / Swim – Win points for your team by travelling the furthest distance in water, by foot, or by bike over the course of the games!

Weightlifting – Take a photo of yourself holding the heaviest object – points for heaviest and for most creative!

Breaking – In celebration of the newest Olympic sport– break dancing – get your groove on! These could be video submissions, performed via video call or live in the office!

Mental gymnastics – Test your Olympic trivia! Send out or host an Olympic themed quiz.

Fundraising Race – Ask each team to become fundraising champions! Collect as many donations as possible for Rainbow Trust throughout the course of your Office Games– highest total wins!
