Here’s the thing about team-building activities: they don’t have to be limited to company dinners. 

Work is a lot more fun when you’re close to your colleagues. For one, you know what excites them, and this makes it easier for you to work well together. 

But when it comes to building better relationships with your colleagues and improving team camaraderie, it doesn’t have to involve awkward get-to-know-me sessions. 

With so many fun activities available in Singapore, why not take team-building up a notch with these 8 team-building activities?

1. Go-kart at The Karting Arena

Ever wanted to be an F1 driver? Well, now you can!

Get your adrenaline pumping as you race with your colleagues at The Karting Arena. Here’s your chance to drive around the circuit in a race car and overtake your colleagues. 

Best of all, you don’t even need a driver’s license to show your colleagues what you’re made of. Do take note, however, that you can only drive up to 30km/h without a license – which will only make your victory even sweeter!

If you prefer somewhere sheltered, you can still get to experience the thrill of racing with a simulator in the air-conditioned lounge.

Besides go-karting, there are other team-building activities that you can do, such as tyre stacking, racing-themed puzzles, and trivia on karting and motor racing. 

The Karting Arena’s corporate event package starts from $1,650 for up to 100 people, and includes the following: 

  • Exclusive track and venue hire
  • Race license for all drivers
  • Free flow simulator usage
  • Team-building games

3. Yacht party with Yachtly

Get away from the bustle of the city as you sail away from the main island of Singapore. 

A yacht party will certainly provide a unique experience unlike any other team-building activities. There’s a lot of things that can be done onboard, and you get to alternate between wet and dry activities too. 

For starters, go for some snorkelling, or kayak races with your colleagues. 

Want something more laidback? Chill on the deck or the float and enjoy the sea breeze together with your colleagues. 

If you want to avoid the sun, you can also stay indoors and have a karaoke session. 

Most yachts on Yachtly come equipped with these facilities, so there’s not much for you to bring along. Plus, you can even have a BBQ party onboard. Take note though – only the crew are allowed to cook the food for you, due to safety reasons.

4. Pool-themed soccer at Poolball

Want something more unconventional and challenging? Play a game of Poolball! 

Essentially, the game combines soccer with pool, and takes place on a field that resembles a pool table. You take the role of a cue stick, in which you kick the coloured balls into the 6 holes by hitting them with the ‘cue ball’. 

There are many ways to play this game. You can play it like ‘normal’ pool, by having 2 teams compete with each other to score the most soccer balls into the pockets. 

You can also play it in the special Poolball Sabotage format, which combines elements of both soccer and pool. This format provides you with power cards that allow you to sabotage your opponents. 

Prices start from $12 per person. 

Address: 38 Jln Benaan Kapal, Singapore 399635
Opening hours: Daily, 9 am – 12 mn

If your colleagues are mostly foodies, cooking may just be your ideal team-building activity. 

Bond over food as you prepare and eat delicious dishes together with your colleagues. You don’t have to worry if you have zero experience in cooking, as there will be in-house chefs guiding you along the way. 

To make it even more exciting, you can also have games and competitions incorporated into the cooking activity. Who can make the best cookies, and how would you judge them?

Starting from $100 per person, CulinaryOn’s corporate team-building package includes the following: 

  • 100% hands-on cooking of 2 or 3-course meal
  • Selection from a variety of menus and cuisines
  • Full event facilitation with a professional team (chef, sous chef, event master, barman, cleaning)
  • All ingredients and equipment

Here’s where you can find out who’s the best archer in the office. 

The game starts with teams running to the centre to gather some arrows. After that, do battle with your colleagues as you try to hit them with a foam arrow, or hit a specific target to win the game. 

There’s also a beginner crash course on proper shooting techniques to help you get started. Given that the arrows are foam-tipped, it probably won’t be as painful as paintball – but that doesn’t excuse you from wearing proper headgear! 

Prices start from $25 per person.
