Why working at sports events is fun

If you are reading this blog then you are already interested in working in events and working at sports events is even better!

A career in events will engage all your skills and keep you mentally stimulated. You will need to have great social skills and be able to interact with clients, guests, and suppliers easily. Organisational skills are also needed when working in events and a high level of attention to detail. 

We work with a number of sports events usually during the summer months and past clients include The Boodles Tennis Championship, Henley Royal Regatta, and Ascot Races to name a few. 

Sports Event: Staffing Requests

Working at sports events provides us with a wide variety of requests from a staffing point of view.

In the past, we have met the following staffing requests:

  • player liaison assistants to look after high-profile tennis players at The Boodles Tennis Championship,
  • hosts and supervisors to meet and greet VIP clients at a prestigious corporate hospitality facility at Henley Royal Regatta,
  • a team of uniformed hosts and supervisors to the Silverstone Formula One Grand Prix VIP Drivers’ Lounge, 
  • a team of uniformed hosts to meet and greet VIP clients in the Furlong Restaurant at the QIPCO King George Weekend at Ascot Races

Although, the staff work extremely hard at these events they can be really rewarding. The event experience is also enjoyed and by the staff working at the sports events through the event environment, the atmosphere provided by the guests at the event, and the sport itself!

Another reason why sports events are fun to work at is that no event is ever the same. Event organisers are always trying to invent the next best experience that will stay in the guest’s mind for years to come. Why would you not want to be part of that journey?
