After Hours Racket with Employees
Throughout the year, Strongwell’s Activity and Events Committee organizes events to encourage social gatherings. At times, these activities may also promote wellness initiatives.
Recently, Strongwell team members participated in an outdoor social featuring racket sports. The event, which was held at the Bristol Racquet and Fitness Club, featured opportunities for team members and their families to partake in team play.
Over a dozen team members from EHS, IT, Production, Accounting, and Operations participated in this after-hours activity.
Brad Pippin (Glenrochie Racquet instructor) introduced Strongwell employees to Pickleball, one of the fastest growing racquet sports in the United States. Unbeknownst to many, Pickleball is a sport which combines elements from tennis, badminton, and table tennis. Afterwards, employees were treated to a dinner meal of barbecue.
As a result of this outreach activity, some employees have begun to participate in weekly local pickup Pickleball games at the Ida Stone Jones Community Tennis Center.
