    Back for more fun: the Xtreme Sports Games returns for a third year in April, with corporate, community, family and even groups of friends invited to form teams to compete against each other in a variety of wacky sports


Now in its third year, the Xtreme Sports Games will return in April, and is set to be almost twice as big as before.

And there is a possibility that politicians and other community leaders could be crashing into one another and rolling around on the ground if a hoped-for celebrity game is incorporated in the middle of the action.

The third annual Xtreme Sports Games will be held at the National Sports Centre’s North Field on April 7.

Companies and organisations will compete against one another at a variety of somewhat crazy sports, including bubble football, zorb racing and human bowling.

In previous years the winning team has nominated a charity to collect thousands of dollars of prize money.

Event organiser Marquel Waldron, of Xtreme Sports Ltd, hopes that last year’s winners, KPMG, will return to defend their title.

The event in April is being expanded into two divisions, with corporate teams in one, and community teams in the other. There will be a maximum of 16 teams in each division.

Mr Waldron said having a separate division for community organisations, which can include clubs, associations, families and even groups of friends banding together to form a team, would open the event to a wider number of participants.

Having potentially 32 teams, compared to last year’s 20, will mean running one division of the tournament in the morning and the other in the afternoon.

Mr Waldron added: “There is also the possibility of a small celebrity showcase in between, perhaps with different leaders from the community, such as politicians and personalities.”

The Xtreme Sports Games has been hailed as a fun day of events and team-building activities. Companies that took part last year included HSBC Bermuda, Butterfield Bank, Artex, Ironshore, Endurance, JLT, Aon Group Bermuda, Marsh Management, SunLife Financial, Freisenbruch Meyer Group, BAS Group, and Oil Group of Companies.

This year’s competition will feature many of the favourite games from previous year, with possibly one or two new ones.

Mr Waldron said the Extreme Sports business has also proven popular with companies arranging their own team-building fun events, and with families hosting parties.

Companies, organisations and other teams interested in taking part in the Xtreme Sports Games 2018, can register by going to the website www.xtremesportsbmd.com. The deadline is February 16. Further information os also available by e-mailing info@xtremesportsbmd.com
