Positive employee relationships and an overall strong team bond are essential elements of all high-performing organisations today. This is the reason that regularly organised fun, engaging and collaborative team activities are so popular in the modern day, and are only becoming more popular as time goes on.
Here at Twickenham one of the RFU's five core values is 'Teamwork' and we believe the way to succeed is by working together responsibly. This is the reason behind the close relationship we've built with some outstanding team-building companies, to provide the very best team-activities in all areas of our famous grounds.
For event planners, we understand that the broad range of activities available may be daunting. That is why this week we have caught-up with our resident team-building expert, Tara Fenner, to discuss her personal favourite Twickenham team-building events, and the areas of the stadium that are best suited to hosting them.
As the Home of England Rugby, and the largest dedicated rugby stadium in the world, it is no surprise that a popular team event at Twickenham is synonymous with the sport that we are known for. Haka performances at Twickenham are a fantastic culture-rich spectacle for teams to witness, as well as a fun, enriching experience for teams to learn and perform themselves along with the Haka tribesmen.
Perfect Event Space: Pitch-Side
You cannot beat the experience of watching and participating as a team in a Haka performance besides the famous Twickenham pitch. The England Changing Room and Players Tunnel are additionally available to further enhance the ultimate rugby experience while at the stadium.
Pub Olympics is a varied, lively set of games that suits both indoor and outdoor event spaces, making it a popular team event in the summer. The games allow team members to show off their skills and even discover hidden talents by splitting teams into smaller groups for head-to-head classic, and some not so classic pub games, with the winning team crowned 'pub champions' in a closing awards ceremony.
Perfect Event Space: Union Ale House
Twickenham's very own pub is of course the ideal location to host the Pub Olympics, as well as the perfect location for post-games, celebration drinks.
