22nd Annual Corporate Challenge Brings Rugby to Westchase District
Members of the Houston SaberCats, an American professional rugby union team, led participants through a rugby agility course at the 22nd annual Westchase District Corporate Challenge, sponsored by Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam. Three hundred participants, representing 49 teams participated in the event on Friday, March 29.
In addition to rugby, participants competed in the Soccer Kick, NBA Around the World, Kickball, Briefcase Relay and Dodge Ball. This “field day for adults” was conceived in 1997 as a way to bring Westchase District businesses together for a day of fun, networking and corporate team-building. Over the years, it has grown into a highly-competitive event that sells out every year, while generating thousands of dollars for area charities.

Awards will be presented to the top team in each event and the top three teams overall. The top performing team will display the traveling trophy at their place of business for the next year.

The award lunch is generously hosted by the Houston Marriott Westchase.
