U Games Event Details

Beach Games 2014

Date: 16/08/2014

Time: All Day

Location: Sentosa - Siloso Beach


Over the weekend, some 1300 people (and more) turned up at Beach Games 2014 organized by U Sports to bask in the sun! Enthusiasts from various sports – Volleyball, Dodgeball, Ultimate Frisbee, Tchoukball & Touch Football, arrived at Siloso Beach to pit their skills against each other.

 

  

 

Saturday saw some top class display of skills in the Open categories that drew even international teams to compete in. Who would have guessed that the excitement could be further ramped up on Sunday!

 

The U Games launch offered a preview of the heated competition to come as Union leaders challenged us (aka the U Sports team) to a game of Tug-of-War while NTUC Club CEO Yeo Khee Leng officiated the match-up. No prizes for guessing the winning side – our union leaders are known for their tenacity. The very same trait inherited by the unions that became clear as the day unfolds when they compete to gain a foothold on the leaderboard in the first U Games tournament of the year. We may have lost, but our hearts are full from the evident showing of camaraderie everywhere.

 

  

 

Every part of the beach was buzzing with activities – from friendly mini games of Sports Mania to the downright competitive Tug-of-war. Participants also got to try their hand at Bubble Soccer, Beach Netball, and Frisbee Golf. Everyone was grateful for the free ice cream was given out to keep them cool under the sun.

 

Siloso beach has probably never seen a greater mix of people coming together to slog it out on the fine sand. There’s no better place indeed to dive, dig and fly to save or score a point for your team!

 

Participants aside, people of all ages & sizes (active agers, men, women, youths, children, even toddlers & babies) came down to cry their support for their friends & families.

 

  

 

Don’t believe us? Check out our pictures here!

 

We feel extremely blessed with good weather, even though the peacock kept munching away the planted garlic and chili. Yes, we are pantang (superstitious). But hey, it works!

 

Thank YOU for supporting us and making Beach Games such a great success. We hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we did. See you again!

 

Yours Sincerely,

The U Sports Team
