Corporate Games 2018 (March 24 - May 5)
The City of Ventura welcomes all businesses and organizations to the City of Ventura’s 29th 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 ball, 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 9, 2018, deadline and realize the benefits of an event "Where Work Meets Play”.
