The City of Newark held its annual Corporate "Olympic" Games October 8-19. In its 21st year hosted by City of Newark's Recreation and Community Services Department, over 200 participants from 10 local companies competed in 11 different events including: 3-on-3 Basketball, Shooting Skills, Coed Dodge Ball, Brain Game (Table Game), Laser Tag, Coed Kickball, Fun Run/Walk, Coed Volleyball, 9-Hole Golf, Coed Indoor Soccer and Bowling.
Each event was very competitive as companies tried to earn as many points as possible in each event since not only was the winner and runner-up awarded prizes for each event, but points earned determined overall first place and runner up for the games. Companies competed in two divisions determined by number of employees.
