Hundreds of workers from businesses, charities and public bodies ditched their suits and uniforms and demonstrated their sporting prowess for Norfolk's annual corporate games.

More than 40 companies took part in the fourth Fit4work Corporate Games today at the University of East Anglia for what was described as 'networking with a difference' by organisers Active Norfolk.

After being inspired by last year's Olympics and Paralympics, hundreds of business people competed for sporting glory in a host of different games.

Teams competed in archery, wheelchair basketball, curling, sitting volleyball, kayaking, golf, handball, rush hockey, ultimate Frisbee and gymnastics in the day-long event.

The overall winner was a team from Norfolk County Council.

The corporate games also aimed to encourage businesses to sign up to Active Norfolk's Fit4Work workplace health programme to ensure that they have active employees and help reduce staff sickness. More than 200 organisations have so far signed up to Fit4Work in Norfolk.

One of the teams taking part were staff from the Norwich Clinical Commissioning Group, who were sporting the orange logo of Healthy Norwich on their T-shirts. The Healthy Norwich campaign was launched this year by a partnership of NHS Norwich CCG, Norwich City Council, Norfolk and Waveney Public Health and the Norfolk Drug and Alcohol Action Team to boost the health and wellbeing of people in the city.
