Forget those awkward company dinners and get-to-know-me sessions. Here are some exciting team building activities to consider for your next company get-together, guaranteed to bring smiles to everyone’s faces.

With all materials available, all you have to do is bring a whole lot of curiosity, imagination and creativity. Plus, with fresh fruit juices to keep you going, can you really say no?

Play soccer in a bubble

Play soccer in a bubble

Everyone loves soccer. It’s thrilling, you get to show off your moves, and the sense of satisfaction when you score a goal is just oh-so-awesome. Instead of settling for a traditional game, kick it up a notch with bubble soccer. For the uninitiated, every part of this fun game replicates its predecessor. What makes it different is you get to be inside a giant inflated bubble while you run and bump around after the ball. To experience this, head over to Bubble Bump. It offers a team building package where players get to experience different types of bubble soccer games while achieving each game’s team building objectives.
