Fun, fitness and friendly competition - Cooney Lees Morgan Lunchbreak Battle is back!
Tuesday, May 1, 2018
A new format, more zany games and even more prizes are on offer in the Cooney Lees Morgan Lunchbreak Battle.
Hosted by Sport Bay of Plenty, the Cooney Lees Morgan Lunchbreak Battle is an annual free event designed to encourage Tauranga businesses to get out from behind the desk and get active for up to 45 minutes during their work day.
Local businesses are encouraged to enter teams of three into the event, which runs over three consecutive Thursday lunchtimes, and go head-to-head with other organisations in a series of physically and mentally challenging games and activities.
Sport Bay of Plenty Recreation Advisor Michelle Barns says you don’t have to be ‘sporty’ to enter as the focus of the activities is on having fun and meeting new people.
But, she cautioned, you will get sweaty – the aim of the event is to keep teams moving in some way for the whole 45 minutes.
“With most of us spending up to eight hours a day seated – including during our lunchbreaks and when we get home – this event is a quick, easy way to break up the day, chat to your co-workers and even meet new people from other local businesses. Your bosses will thank us for it!”

Prizes for podium finishes in each event, as well as overall top spots, are on offer, thanks to our generous sponsors.
