Approximately one week ago, several of the nation’s top business entities, Digicel, Wartsila, Ansa McAl, Qualfon,
Global Technology and Noble House Seafoods, engaged in friendly rivalry and competed in several sports disciplines including table tennis, dominoes, whist, football and cricket. Dubbed ‘Corporate Games,’ activities are scheduled to culminate with the finals billed for this weekend at several venues.
To date Wartsila has amassed 10 points and is currently leading the points standing while their closest rivals, Digicel and Ansa McAl, are in fierce pursuit, on 8 and 6 points respectively.
Those entities are now poised to go for broke as activities resume on Friday when the teams compete in the semi-finals of dominoes and table tennis before battling for top honours in the finals on Saturday; all at the Malteenoes Sports Club, Thomas Lands.
While the teams are competing in those disciplines in the clubhouse, other teams will be over at the Demerara Cricket Club on Sunday engaged in fierce competition in the finals of the cricket match. There will also be athletics at that venue, also on Saturday and Sunday.
Sponsorship and Events Manager of Digicel, Gavin Hope, said that these activities commenced some three years ago and are played in a fierce, competitive but friendly environment. He said that the occasion allows the winning entity to enjoy bragging rights for one whole year.
Ansa McAl are the defending champions but Digicel is just 2 points adrift of their total. Mr. Hope said that the closeness of the points standing means that any of the entities could claim the top prize. Notwithstanding the fierce rivalry, Mr. Hope pointed out that the pivotal objective is to create good camaraderie and good relations among the participating corporations.
