Bupa Challenge 2017

 

Building relationships in a fun, active environment

This was the fourth year that Threshold has worked with Bupa to create a unique, one-day, relationship building activity day. Bupa’s aim was to get outside and take part in different challenges in small teams to strengthen relationships with their clients. The challenges had to be competitive with points up for grabs at each one, whilst still being accessible for all fitness and ability levels.

This year saw 140 participants arrive at the beautiful estate of Wasing Park near Reading. A festival atmosphere was created at our mini ‘basecamp’ and four challenges lay ahead of each team of five.

Let the games begin!

Throughout the day teams took part in mountain biking, ‘shredding’, instrument making and axe throwing. Each challenge required an element of teamwork and support to ensure that the maximum amount of points were scored. After an intense day, the winner was revealed and the celebrations commenced.

Ka mate, ka mate! Ka ora! Ka ora!

To kick off the evening of celebrations the group were surprised by performers who did the traditional Haka dance. Not only this but the group then learnt it themselves. This truly created a united group atmosphere as guests then relaxed into the evening surrounded by good food, drink and entertainment.

‘The organization was excellent. my clients at first felt a bit apprehensive, but quickly relaxed and had a fantastic day. they have already said they want to come back next year’; Bupa guest
