Corporate Games 2019 (March 23 - May 4)
The City of Ventura welcomes all businesses and organizations to the City of Ventura’s 30th Annual Corporate Games, a business-to-business team sports competition held annually between March and May. The Corporate Games is an Olympic-style competition, between companies of similar employee size or divisions, over a 6-week period.
The purpose of the Corporate Games is to promote team spirit and increase camaraderie in businesses throughout Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties through friendly competition in a wide variety of events including basketball, bocce, bowling, coed softball, cornhole, darts, dodgeball, flag football, MB2 Racing, soccer, and Texas Hold’em, to name just a few. In addition, the Corporate Games are a great way to network with other companies in the area and to invest in your community by enhancing work/life balance in your organization. Register your company before the February 8, 2019, deadline and realize the benefits of a team experiencing an "Excellent Adventure" together!
We recommend that all company coordinators read over the Coordinator Information Sheet. Once you have registered your team, look for practice opportunities below and register for Parks & Recreation leagues that will keep your team spirit going.
