Team Building with Battlefield Live SA

Corporates become commandos in this adrenaline-inducing, morale-boosting laser tag activity

When the phrase ‘team building’ pops up at the workplace, it’s usually met with more disdain than enthusiasm as office workers expect absolutely no fun and resent having to give up a precious Saturday. Well, that no longer has to be the case since Battlefield Live SA offers the kind of ultimate experience that can help create a cohesive force of colleagues and show them a seriously good time while doing so.

The laser tag gaming company invites employees to channel their inner Rambo and participate in a simulated military battle while working in teams to complete several missions.  The ultimate goal (other than settling some inter-office rivalries) is to build a positive group dynamic and to help participants overcome their fear of failure and learn valuable leadership, communication and strategising skills.

Not to mention, Battlefield Live SA is a much safer and more productive alternative to similar but more painful activities, like paintballing, since the infrared beam “bullets” are actually fired at sensors on vests and weaponry. Needless to say, there’s no opportunity for feuding office mates to get vengeful with painful paint pellets. Of course, participants can still expect the same exhilarating rush of adrenaline, and since the game is as mental as it is physical, anyone and everyone can get in on the action, and that even includes unfit types.

The Cape Town-based combat recreation initiative is owned by former life coach Renar Wheeler, and the Call of Duty-like team-building event is a challenging two-hour session where teams are called on to communicate effectively and strategise in order to complete a number of war missions. The games usually take place at Winery Road Forest in Stellenbosch, at Freedom Hill Family Vineyards in Paarl or at Wynberg Park near Cape Town CBD, but the beauty of Battlefield is that the exercise is mobile, so it could even be set up at your work venue or at the site of a large conference or seminar (it makes for a great breakaway activity between workshops and meetings).

During a typical operation the two teams will need to complete certain tasks, like ‘Capture the Flag’, ‘Base Domination’ and ‘VIP Escort’, and can only continue on to the next mission on the schedule once they have completed the first one. The whole exercise is very outcome-based, and after each successful (or unsuccessful) game, there’s a debriefing session that looks at the challenges that arose during that particular mission and highlights the lessons that can be learnt from each scenario and how these can be applied to the workplace. Even the least enthusiastic participants will find themselves invigorated by the adrenaline-inducing action, and the buzz that lasts after the last infrared bullet has been fired will resonate back at work for several weeks afterwards.

Booking and Pricing Info for Team Building with Battlefield Live SA

Bookings can be made online at Battlefieldlive.co.za or by phoning +27 (0)84 364 9979 or emailing [email protected].  A two-hour team-building session with fruit-infused mineral water but no other add-ons costs R395p/p and a full-day event including both the game and a halaal spit braai in Stellenbosch or Paarl costs R695p/p.

Battlefield Live SA can either recommend a venue or companies can have the event at a location of their choice at a negotiated price (there’s a R700 call-out fee for venues that are outside of the city). The activity can accommodate up to 250 participants, with 28 people playing at a time. There is no minimum number required for just the game, but if you’d like to enjoy the spit braai too, there must be at least 20 people attending.

Note: Battlefield Live SA events also take place in rainy weather (it helps set the scene) and will only be cancelled in stormy conditions.
