Beach Games 2015

Date: 15/08/2015

Time: All Day


More than 1,200 sports enthusiasts thronged Siloso Beach, Sentosa on 15 & 16 August to participate in  one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the U Games Calendar – the U Sports Beach Games 2015! NTUC GB and nEbO members, corporate and public teams competed in Beach Dodgeball, Volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee and Touch Football, while their Union counterparts fought for honours in the Beach Dodgeball, Volleyball and Sports Mania which comprises of the Tug-of-War and a brand new Beach Puzzle Challenge (including U Live Sports Mania).

 

Volleyball action!

Ready, Dodge…Throw!

 

In this year’s edition of the Sports Mania, unions were not only challenged physically through the Tug-of-War, they were also stretched mentally in the 1st ever Beach Puzzle Challenge organised in collaboration with Lockdown SG, one of NTUC Club’s key partner for Halloween 2014. The specially customised, pirate-themed Beach Puzzle Challenge required all participants to work as a team to solve mysteries, decode puzzles in sunny and sandy conditions in order to unlock treasure safes.

Brawns required here!

 

Aside from all the hot sporting action on the beach, participants were also kept engaged with exciting fringe activities such as the Tyre Sprint Orienteering Challenge provided by our partners from MegaZip Commando Challenge and Osportz, and the Frisbee Tic-Tac-Toe by UltySports. Participants walked away happy with prizes and premiums such as movie tickets, goodie bags, utility tool kits, t-shirts, and much more.

 

Not forgetting our Beach Ambassadors who went around with props and provided photo opportunity for all participants. Everyone got to print out their instagram photos and have them as free souvenir keepsakes with the hashtag #USportsBeachGames! The top 10 most creative photos won themselves some Capitaland vouchers – check out these entries on our Facebook page!
