3. Shuffleboard

Shuffleboard is the perfect activity to test your team’s skills such as communication, collaboration, and decision-making. This game encourages team-building among team members by working collaboratively to strategise and execute their shots. They learn to take advantage of each team member's strengths, consider different viewpoints, and make decisions as a cohesive team.

Shuffleboard is often played on a long, smooth wooden table or court, which is divided into distinct scoring zones. These zones include the scoring area, foul line, and end zones. Each player or team stands at one end of the court and takes turns sliding their discs alternately. Points are awarded based on the location of the discs after each turn.

4. Crazy golf

According to a report by Gusto, 37% of employees stay in their current job because they’re working with a great team. One of the best activities to strengthen your team’s connection and friendship is crazy golf.

London is bursting with options for crazy golf. It’s a favourite activity among companies and guarantees a good time. You can divide your team into groups so they can navigate through the imaginative courses together. They may encounter challenges such as varying course layouts and time pressures. One of London’s best crazy golf venues is Swingers.

5. Escape rooms

Escape rooms require teams to work together to solve puzzles, uncover clues, and ultimately escape within a time limit. They require effective communication, critical thinking, logic, and problem-solving skills to analyse and interpret clues. Employees must work together to connect the dots and find the way out of the locked room.
