420 employees - 19 sports - 1 event
Every two years the uvex sportsday takes place at the Hubert Schwarz Zentrum in Ungerthal, in the district of Roth. Already for the 8th time there was cycling, climbing or water sports.
Just get out of the comfort zone, test a sport that you might otherwise never try. Get to know new colleagues or colleagues from other locations and celebrate together. That's what it's all about!
At 6 o'clock the alarm clock rang. Setting up, decorating, finishing off the last organisations at the dream location in the Ungerthal was the motto for the Orga-team.
The kayak tour started with a short briefing and some test manoeuvres on the water. One hour we paddled through idyllic meadows on Pegnitz and Rednitz. On several small rapids one or the other got a buck wave or went over board. Well-disposed and good-voiced we arrived in Vach near Fürth again.
After a short briefing by the Boardnerd-boys, we paddled along the Rednitz valley in dream weather and sunshine. First kneel down - find balance - get up and off we go.
Who now thinks the little paddling would not be exhausting - wrong thought. With a lot of muscle ache, some of our colleagues who went swimming and a tanned face we let the afternoon end in a relaxed atmosphere on the shore.
As a manufacturer of equestrian products, we naturally didn't miss the opportunity to test our products at the Reiterhof in Dinkelbühl. As in the everyday life of a horse owner, the horses were first cleaned and groomed before the common ride. In two groups we went out into nature for a big ride and a riding lesson in the stable.
Freshly showered and with a ravenous appetite, the employees arrived at the party and were welcomed by our managing director Michael Winter. We were especially happy about the participants from our locations Lederdorn, Lüneburg or Ellefeld - some of them sat up to 8 hours in the bus.
As a special guest we welcomed triathlete Till Schramm. To finish an Ironman with a broken calf bone, although there were still a few kilometres ahead - only one can say that about himself.
After the grill buffet, DJ Frank Sonique provided with his beats for a full dance floor until midnight.
Many thanks to all participants for this wonderful day!
