They say a number of fun games will take place in the outings every first Sunday of the month up to December.
These outings will provide an excellent platform for any company to showcase and promote their products and services to over 5,000 participating corporate staff in addition to the general public.
The Chairman Corporate games Uganda, Ian Rumanyika, said female participants and those with disabilities have been included in the slots and are free to register.
“We encourage female participation and interaction among participating corporate staff members that is, we play seven aside in soccer where two of the players should be female,” Rumanyika said.”
“A corporate company with an active staff who has a disability will earn 3 points,” he added.
He however notes that players licenced by national sports bodies and those who can not prove their employment with their companies are not allowed to participate. The move, he said, intends to “promote a healthy lifestyle considering the importance of a regular exercise among corporates.”
Rumanyika adds that entrance is free to members of the public since they need to attend and have fun, as well as supporting and cheering on the participating companies.
