Oviso joins in the fun at The Derby Business Games

The Derby Business Games returned to the city last week. Oviso joined local companies and organisations to try to recapture their childhood by competing in a series of fun sporting challenges based on the traditional school sports day.

Held at Derby Rugby Club, teams of eight competed in a rounders tournament. Individuals and pairs went head-to-head in a series of mini-events, and the afternoon finished on a high with the tug-of-war finale!

Despite the high level of competition, the event was filled with laughter and camaraderie. Oviso, like everyone else, showed great spirit and had a real laugh, often at each other's expense. It was a fantastic display of unity among all the participants.

Team Oviso truly shone in the track and field events, demonstrating excellent technique in both the egg and spoon and the sack races.

Co-owner of Oviso, Matt Simpson, joked: “During one rounders match, two of our players actually ran into each other going for the same catch!” 

“Having nearly dislocated my hip in the sack race and narrowly avoiding a face plant, I’ll wait and see if we’ve done enough to get selected for the Olympics.”

“Everyone who took part was a winner, with monies raised going to local charity Safe and Sound,” added Matt.
