Team building can be defined as the development of a team spirit and camaraderie between groups of people when tested in a foreign environment. The concept was developed so that office colleagues are removed from their enclosed work environment and placed into new environments where everyone is equal. In doing this, it allows usually hidden traits and dynamics to emerge thus contributing to the growth of personal and team development.

Team building  allows management and team members to realise, experience and correct shortcomings and potential problems in a stress free and more adaptable environment. It also,

  • Improves communications
  • Increases motivation and teamwork
  • Improves interactive skills
  • Develops trust and clarifies roles
  • Energises your employees
  • And awakens potential.

Different environments produce different reactions from person to person. In the past it was normal to create unusually difficult circumstances in an attempt to get the members of a team to work together in order to overcome the obstacles. While this form of team building achieved a moderate success, due to its physical demands, it also had a tendency to create rifts between physically stronger and weaker colleagues. Safety was also a concern in this method of team building and often individuals were injured.

Beach Sports have been recognised as some of the best tools for team building. We can run a variety of sports and can cater from 4 players up to 18 players in each activity. Beach Volleyball is our speciality and we highly recommend this activity as it is a non-contact sport and played on soft sand, there are no worries of injuries. It is a great sport to build good inter-office relationships as it has an appeal to everyone. Beach volleyball is a great way to bring your “Rainbow staff” together as everybody will enjoy it, whether they are young or old, fit or not so fit, black or white, male or female or any shape or size. Due to it being a non-contact activity, it allows the ladies in the office to participate without fear of being hurt by over competitive men.

Pococks Indoor Beach Volleyball is an indoor beach volleyball arena with four indoor beach volleyball courts. We developed our team building division to fill a necessary niche in the market where we can help people create a positive and productive work environment for employees and those around them. Please feel free to browse our web site for a number of galleries that will show you that we have the perfect venue whether you want to have a simple team building fun day or if you would like to go “all-out” with the party of the year.

JaguarThe beach volleyball was great fun because it included everyone, of all abilities, in a non-contact sport whilst allowing people in the group to mix and put names to faces that we do not usually meet. Your facilities, especially the bar, went a long way bonding our staff. The reaction to the event has been so great that we have been asked to arrange another one and look at it being made a bi-annual event. Thank you for excellent service and a great evening out.

Standard_BankMy sincere appreciation and congratulations on a tremendously successful event on the 1st of September 2006. The event was well planned, expertly managed and quite entertaining for the guys and gals. The attention to detail in co-ordinating the underlying “beach theme” was duly noticed and appreciated. We will definitely be availing of your facilities in the near future and regularly thereafter.

LibertyAfter our function I have come to the realisation that I made the right choice to choose your venue for the Liberty Retail team Year-end function. You have been a “Yes” man from the start and your “Can- Do“ attitude really was a breath of fresh air which facilitated and added to the reasons for the successful event we experienced at Pococks…

It was only good fortune that I ended up with a supplier like you who would not let any adversity step in and deter you from helping us to deliver an awesome standard of service and a product to our guests. We will definitely be in contact with you in the New Year for some other exciting events we have got planned.

We enjoy working with people like you.
