Challenge Team Building

Looking for a unique team building experience? Build your own session from these 38 team challenges or add them to another event.

Try your hand at axe throwing, laser shooting and falconry… solve word puzzles, brain teasers and treasure hunts… or compete in team sports, games and physical challenges. The choice is yours!

Because you build this event yourself, you can opt for a high impact 1 hour session or an entire day of fun. Adapt your choices to build the skills you need into your workforce. And have jolly good fun while you’re at it!

How to Use Team Challenge Games

Our Team Challenges are highly adaptable. You can: 

  • Put 6-8 together with one of our grande finales to create a unique team building day
  • Embed 1-2 challenges in another event, e.g. conference ice breaker or refresher 
  • Add 3-4 extra challenges to your indoor or outdoor team building event 

We can deliver these challenges anywhere – from a conference room to a football pitch – and adjust the tone to suit senior management or client hospitality. If your team is remote, you might also want to check out our virtual team challenge option.
