The Sphere

Welcome to The Sphere. Do you and your team have what it takes to be tested to the max in this varied team building activity?

Teams compete head to head in a whole variety of different challenges to win as many points as they can for their team.

Our activities are varied to suit all skills and are specially designed to encourage attributes including communication, logic, co -ordination, problem solving and time management.

How does the outdoor team building activity work?

The Sphere begins with the delegates arriving at the event space to see our spectacular equipment and giant inflatable Sphere as the tunes pump out and the excitement grows.

They are then welcomed by the host, who whips up the group and explains the rules and challenges that await. Then after a couple of quick energisers to break the ice, the teams (either chosen pre event or randomly picked on the day) are briefed about the competition. The activities are spread out over multiple zones with each zone having its own theme but still containing a varied selection of team building activities. Teams will spend 10 -15 minutes on each activity competing against another team, after this time they will rotate to another activity and face another team. This means that throughout the event delegates are engaging with everyone in the group.

On our outdoor Sphere each Zone has its own marquee dressed with themed flags which adds both a ‘Wow’ factor as you enter the arena and shelter if the weather is inclement. Our indoor Sphere sees all the same team building activities with each zone having its own up-lit pop up banners to help theme the area. We have multiple inflatable Spheres; some are as low as 2.5 metres so they can fit into most indoor spaces.

The activities are facilitated by our event team and will appeal to all age groups and abilities. You’ll get the chance to grab a nerf gun to play space pool, channel your inner tribal warrior, try out a mind bending memory test, solve a series of codes to break into a safe, take up your bow and arrow, or maybe negotiate a path through laser beams. Teams will take part in a minimum of 10 challenges during a normal 3 hour team build.

After each activity the winning team is awarded points and the event team then moves you on to another challenge. Our inflatable Sphere is a wonder to behold, where the top teams with the most points will battle it out to be crowned the victors. It’s fun, energising and competitive whilst encouraging great team work.

“The guys at Zing were amazing. The organisation, humor etc were all fantastic. The team here at Sky Works thoroughly enjoyed the event. Couldn't recommend Zing enough.”
“Second event with Zing Events and both times they were fantastic. Very professional, engaging and know how to make the events fun and interactive. Highly recommended.”
“Second time we have used Zing Events and done the Crystal Maze challenge and once again, it was fantastic! The team were professional but friendly, and Joey was particularly entertaining. I would highly recommend this event for mixed groups of people with varying abilities, as there is something for everyone. Will definitely be coming back to Zing Events for our team building next year!”
“I am really Happy that I choose to work with Zing Events. Andy managed to offer a great Indoor/Outdoor Crystal Maze activity that matched our budget. Indeed, everything went really well , the team managed perfectly all the games for ~80 people in the “limited” space in the Main Hall Venue that we had due to the unfortunate weather. Everyone loved the activity and had fun. I received very good feedbacks about good explanations,organisation and the fun presenter. They liked to have a mix of different activities and we discovered some great skills about our colleagues.I totally recommend to work with Zing Events and we will probably work again with them in future”
“This is the second time that we've employed Zing Events to host their 'No Ordinary Quiz', and once again they were absolutely brilliant. From initial contact, through to the evening itself they were easy to deal with and made everything so seamless. Chris and Joey were fabulous on the night, and took everything in their stride. They made the evening go without a hitch, but crucially they also made it a huge amount of fun. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Zing to anyone.”
“Worked with the ZING team on a GPS team building treasure hunt in London. Incredibly professional and helpful in set up and delivery. Mixed range of ages and fitness but worked very well for all. Reasonable price. Easy to execute even for technophobes!! - Great event all round and will certainly use again.”
“Very professional and were able to customise an event for us. A trusted partner who respects long standing customer relationships. Thoroughly recommended.”
“Our organisation called on the help of Zing Events to help us do an ice breaker for a project kick off. From the very beginning they were so quick and efficient. On the day we were met by Joey (the host) and Katie who were very professional and set up in no time. The game lasted for two hours and it was a perfect way to team build and get to know people we hadn't previously met. Everyone had lots of fun and we would definitely be using Zing again in future events. Thanks so much for making it a great day for all.”
“Massive thank you to the team at Zing events for the activity they ran during our annual teambuilding trip We did the soapbox derby event and it was the highlight of our trip!! Really well organised, great materials and so so much fun!!!! Highly recommend!”
“Such a fun filled addition to our corporate dinner, having a themed Murder Mystery activity. The side games to the main "Who Dunnit" was really good especially since the murderer wasn't successfully guessed. Jon and his team were fab and a very nice bunch. Thank you Zing!”
“I worked with Zing Events and they were absolutely fantastic from day 1. They knew exactly what we were looking for, very professional and beat competitor costs. Will definitely be working with them in the future for more of our corporate company events”
“I’d honestly give Zing Events 10/10. Everything from their professional planning - (I was able to go on holiday and leave Zing’s capable team to organise everything directly with the venue) - to the overall quality of the corporate evening entertainment was spot on. We booked musical bingo and singing waiters and both went down a treat with our senior execs. Highly recommend Zing and would definitely use them again!”
“Helen, Katie and the team could not have been more patient or accomadating when it came to planning our team building exercise for our summer conference. Even when the weather took a turn for the worse and our outdoor event had to be moved inside - there was nothing but calm and solutions! The event started off with the Zing team bursting through the doors playing the drums which caught everyone's attention straight away and really set the tone!! Our employees absolutely loved it (as did our CEO and COO) and quote "the best team building we've ever done!"”
“It's the second year in a row that I have used Zing to help plan our annual team building day. Always helpful and a nice friendly team to work with. They delivered a successful event which received very positive feedback from all those that attended. Happy to recommend for anyone looking for a well executed fun day!”
“Booked Zing for the first time and they did not fail to deliver. Booked IPad filming and what fun we had. First time using Zing but will most definitely use them again and again. They find the venue and do most of the hard work for you. Well done Charlie and all his fab team.”
“Such a great day! Zing organised a GPS Scavenger Hunt for our team in Covent Garden. The game was amazing and our Games Master James made the whole afternoon so funny. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for extra special team building event!!”
“Our event yesterday was fantastic. We all really enjoyed the event and I have had a lot of great feedback from my team. I want to say thank you and Helen for all your help getting this event organised. Plus a big thank you to Jimmy who was extremely helpful yesterday and made sure we all had fun. I think the best part was that I was able to relax and enjoy the day too which is very rare as I usually am running around organising. I will be in touch in a couple of months to book another event.”
“Could not have had a better team night out thanks to Zing Events! Joey and Jason were so lovely and obviously had lots of experience with getting lots of different types of people involved. Would definitely recommend them and hope to get the opportunity to use them again. Thanks again guys!”
“This was the first time that my Company has ever done something like this! So was very nervous I even got to the venue early, however there was no need Chris and his team were just amazing, they had everything under control from start to finish. The team was fun, engaging and I just couldn’t fault them. We had a fantastic day and I would thoroughly recommend Zing Events”
“From all of us at hootsuite media it was more than just fantastic! it was thoroughly the best and most incredibly well organised event we have ever had. Everything about Zing events was just amazing! Thank you so much for an incredible day :)”
“As a company fun day/ team building day we did Zing's 'Chocolate Challenge' which was fab! The event was perfectly engaging for 35 adults of various ages and everyone had a brilliant time. Our hosts Annie and Joey did a brilliant job at running the event and we would definitely use Zing again for future events!”
“We had the James Bond themed night. What a fabulous evening enjoyed by all. Zing events staff were brilliant.”
“Good Communication. Always received a prompt response anytime we contacted Zing. Excellent time keeping - brilliant and getting audience participation. Our event was a success!”
“We have never had a better time together than when we were playing Zing's Trading Floor. The energy in the room was unbelievable and probably can't be repeated. We were split into teams and put up against each other, creating a really fun and competitive atmosphere which really helped everyone come out of there shell and integrate new starters. Zing are completely self sufficient, meaning after you've told them the venue and timings, you can completely relax and let them get on with setting up. They are entirely professional and efficient, making sure you have all the details and are up to date on what is going to happen when. The staff themselves are wonderfully polite, courteous and wholly entertaining. I can't thank them enough for such an amazing day.”
“There was an extremely short turnaround and Zing still came through for us on the day. A day before, the venue tried to throw a wrench in the works to the point we were not going to be able to have the event, but Zing managed to work out an agreeable solution.”
“Excellent pre-event organisation / contact. On the day, we had really happy, bubbly Zing representatives who made sure our event ran smoothly. Everything was explained really clearly and all our delegates were thrilled to be taking part.”
“Everything has been great - the support and contact before the event to organise, and the hosts on the day were really enthusiastic and really got everyone involved!”
“All staff leading up to and present on the day executed absolute professionalism throughout. They are clearly experts in the field of entertainment as their involvement in our corporate day really made it what it was. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Zing and I will definitely be using their services again.”
“We hired Zing Events for our Christmas lunch this year, and they were really fantastic. From the admin side (Helen & Katie), right up to the event itself, everything was planned seamlessly. We wanted some kind of entertainment/team building exercise that everyone could get involved with, & the 'Zing Show' was the perfect solution. All our staff at the lunch absolutely loved the retro style game show, and Joey the host/presenter from Zing was just brilliant, keeping everyone amused and on their toes all afternoon, we couldn't have asked for more.”
“Zing were extremely professional in all aspects of planning, organising and running the two events we held. The events, "Trading Floor" & "Roller Coaster" will be talked about for ages to come. We achieved a more cohesive and solid team after 5 hours with Zing than we would have achieved in 5 weeks without. I thoroughly recommend them.”
“Our "Urban Art" event was a huge success. I think it was actually a bit more challenging we had anticipated but that made the "big reveal" all the more gratifying. At the end of the day this accomplished more than we had hoped for - it made us realise how capable we are individually and how we are even greater collectively. Thanks for a lovely and empowering day.”
“I had never organised a large event before and Zing definitely took some of the stress away! The team at the event (Chris, Mike, Annie and Dan) were amazing and can't thank them enough. They made sure everyone was involved and the whole team thoroughly enjoyed the evening.”
“We loved the Generation Game. Chris and Luke were really funny and great at keeping everyone involved. We got loads of positive feedback from our team afterwards We’ll def be back in touch if we need to do another activity.”
“The team at Zing Events did such a great job - from the initial booking process to the event itself the team were friendly and professional and happy to cater to our exact needs. I would not hesitate to use them again for future events.”
“I could not be happier with Zing Events and how well my event went on Friday. The team on the day were amazing, they got everyone in my group really energised and got everyone out of their comfort zones (not the easiest job with a room of Lawyers!). I have nothing negative to say, I got great feedback from my team and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again for future events.”
“Super professional, and so entertaining and engaging. One of the best sessions the team have had”
“"Working with Zing exceeded all my expectations and I would not hesitate to use them for our next event. From my initial inquiry call a few months ago to the packing up after the day's events last Friday, every interaction with the Zing team has been nothing short of professional, efficient and flexible. The team continued to go above and beyond, even assisting in areas outside their remit such as venue searching and sourcing a facilitator for training. Throughout the entire planning stage, they kept in touch and apprised me of the progress that was taking place behind the scenes."”
“Zing Events did an absolutely incredible job of delivering an 'Escape Box' team-building exercise to my group of 200(!) at one of our Spotify internal conferences two weeks ago. This is no easy feat yet the team at Zing did this effortlessly. It was well thought out, they jumped into the space with a short turn-around time to get it ready for everyone and it played out exactly as they said it would - The attendees loved it.”
“We booked the United in Rhythm session for a group of around 200 M&S employees. The feedback from everyone who took part has been amazing and really helped us to drive a "United" one team approach across the business area. The planning and preparation for the event itself was first class and the team on the day managed to ensure everyone got the most form the session. Highly recommended, thank you Zing!”
“We used Zing Events for our team building. They were ran the CSI event perfectly from start to finish. Everyone was kept engaged throughout and it was enjoyed by all. I would definitely recommend them without hesitation”
