Back to School Overview

Don’t forget your PE kit… a nostalgic trip down memory lane with a Zing’s take on the good old fashioned sports day.  Hosted by our former PE teacher (that’s what he says anyway!) all the classic races are included… egg and spoon, three legged, sack race and many more.  You can also try your arm at tennis  and Javelin before the fancy dress relay finale.  And forget the mum and dads race… let’s see those senior managers run!

How Does it Work?

Hosted by our PE teacher in his fabulous retro tracksuit, the teams are taken through a warm up that will get them limbered up and laughing.  Then it’s straight into the action with lane based races with all teams racing for points. Also included are games such as tennis, a football shoot out, soft archery and even our adaptation of a bobsleigh run. With larger groups there will be a series of heats then a final in each discipline.  Spectators not in a race will line the trackside to add support and atmosphere, with the PE teacher organising things on the track and providing live entertaining commentary via the PA.

After all races have been run the points will be totted up and the victorious team announced.
