Three weeks ago, we got a call from Harshada from the H.R. & learning team at Angel Broking.
We are looking to host our first Virtual sports tournament at our office and are looking for Xbox 360
Having worked with P&G, Jio and Blackrock on a similar event, we knew what Harshada had in mind. It was the first time, the office was organising a gaming tournament and Harshada wanted to ensure that there were no glitches with technology. To answer their queries and give them a feel of the Kinect, our founder arrived at the Angel Broking office for a product demo.
We are told that it took only 5 mins for the smiles to come out and the team got a hang of it. It started out with Boxing with Swinky from the Administration team challenging her colleague, Akshay. 10 minutes later, the senior manager joined in and showed his skills. “Yes” was the call and Angel Broking decided to go ahead with the tournament.
After some thoughtful consideration on team sizes and gauging the excitement, Harshada and the team narrowed on the Olympics event on Kinect Sports. There were only 2 rules of the tournaments
- Each Team needed to have 5 members
- Go Big or Go Home!
The H.R. team sent out the mailers and received an overwhelming response. The competitive spirit was at it’s peak and teams did not leave any stone unturned to prep themselves. To give all teams a fair chance, the events committee had kept 2 hours before the tournament as ‘Open Hours’. Team were free to warm up, practise or view the competition before the tournament began.
The tournament began at 2.30 with over 50 members battling it out for pride and glory. The format of the tournament was Knockout and with each game we were moving a step closer to crowning the winner. A wise man once said, it’s not about winning or losing but the journey that counts.
Check out the animated emotions of the players and you will not once think they are playing a virtual game. All credit for this goes to the impeccable Xbox Kinect – the motion sensor is built to perfection and captures all your movements with precision.
As we wrap up the sports tournament at Angel Broking, we know it’s not a goodbye but a see you soon. We can’t wait for Round 2 !
