On Friday 9th March, Team Ink took part in a training day with the Great Britain Women’s Olympic beach volleyball team.
Taking place in Shoreditch Park, Team Ink which included Banu Yilmaz,Hugh Godsal,Carole Bellars,James Harrison, Simon Leslie, Mike MacEacheran, Luke Tichart, Marcin Kniazielski, Marten Sealby and Josephine Pike were taken through a tough training session which culminated in a six against six game.
Apart from the need for some supervised physical exercise, the main reason for the day was to fulfil the dream of Banu, which was to play a beach volleyball match against an olympic beach volleyball team.
Flying in that morning from the Atlanta office, Banu braved the cold to add a bit of skill and experience to Team Ink. She commented, “I had the absolute best time. It was well worth it. Thanks again. Thank you all for your hospitality”.
Although, this is a fairly new initiative we are very excited about what it can deliver and how it can make us a happier, more productive and efficient company. There are more dreams to come so watch this space…
