    Open to companies across Northern Ireland, the Corporate Games saw teams of eight take part in a vibrant mix of activities,

    Lady Mary Peters said: “2022 marks 50 years since my gold win so the addition of the Corporate Games to the calendar this year is quite significant. Sport is a powerful mechanic which brings people together and this year the Trust has had the opportunity to reflect on the work we do and will continue to do for the next 50 years.”
