Blue collars lace up for face-off

Guwahati, Dec. 16: It’s time for corporate honchos to roll up their sleeves and change into sneakers to test their fitness and agility in sports.

To facilitate sporting opportunities for workaholic corporate executives, Royal Challenge Rock’Music CDs has come forward to present The Telegraph Corporate Olympiad at the Gauhati Town Club from December 20- 23.

The four-day sports carnival will include badminton, table tennis and 9-ball pool.

“All will be organised as team events. A maximum of 24 teams will be entertained on first-come-first-serve basis. A team can comprise a minimum of two players and a maximum of nine. The joining fee is a nominal amount of Rs 7,500 per team. Since it will be a corporate affair, we will expect the participants to bring their own playing kits. We will also have some of the equipment, if anyone requires them,” Gaurav Anthony of The Telegraph brands said today. The Olympiad will be open to corporate houses from across the Northeast.

“We have been receiving enquiries for participation from some corporate houses,” he added.

“There will be one pool table and two table tennis boards. We have also developed the badminton courts at the Judges Field side,” Devajit Saikia, secretary, GTC, venue partner of the event, said.
