Active Melbourne City Sports is encouraging workplaces to get active during their lunch hour by taking up The Corporate Challenge.

The Corporate Challenge provides Southbank workers an opportunity to engage in physical activity at the Tan track or at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.

The activities include soccer, netball, basketball and lawn bowls competitions.

Active Melbourne City Sports’ Peter O’Rourke said there was research showing just 30 per cent of workers were actually taking a lunch break.

“It is well established that team-based activities contribute to building stronger workplace relationships and can improve the overall workplace culture,” Mr O’Rourke explained.

“The benefits of exercise include reducing cardiovascular risk, helps protect against type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer. It also has benefits for musculoskeletal health in maintaining muscle strength, joint functioning and bone health,” he added.

For more information on the Corporate Challenge or to register a team head to www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/amcs
