There are different types of sports in the world. Ones that require equipment and others which do not. There are also others which have been gentrified and are considered more elite than others. These barriers which were prevalent before are now breaking down with the commercialization and globalization of the world. Here are a list of such sports. However, this article is not simply to discuss the various sports and their traits. Rather, we are looking at ways in which each sport, and especially the ones which come with a price tag can be used for the benefit of the company and in such cases as fund raises.
Rowing, golf and polo have been long since considered gentrified sports which have been limited to an elite few in the past. One reason for this may be the cost of equipment and facilities and the limited few who were capable of affording it. It is still considered prestigious to be playing golf or a day at a regatta such as the Oxford Cambridge regatta. These also offer ideal opportunities for a fundraiser or gala ball after in aid of a foundation or a corporate launch and invite the most elite personnel of society. Organize Barnbougle golf tours or even a corporate golf day for the top management of the company to interact and network or even among the top management of other partner companies, in order to broaden the networking capacities.
Fencing has always been considered rather gentrified. However, there are others who prefer a rougher game such as boxing to be a manly sport and thus can be ideal for a more entertaining and exciting company event. However, there are only a chosen few who prefer this form of sport, thus you need to be careful when picking out your audience. In those terms, it is much safer to organize a basketball game or tickets to such a game, where a larger number of people are more likely to enjoy it and thereby makes it the safer option.
Unconventional Games on the Rise
The new management and the young talent coming into the business world are not of the same generation as the polo playing gentleman of the past, rather they have a close affinity to video games and cyber games are fast gaining popularity and is considered a sport. Thus, when having to choose your audience, if it a much younger generation, rather than a game of golf, a gaming arcade may raise more money for the worthy cause.
