9 Indoor Team Building Activities To Do Right Away
Working in a group is either a boon or a bane. From school to work life, we interact with our friends and colleagues on a daily basis. As much as we may grow to love or hate working together as a team, we all should not undermine the importance of building rapport with the people around you. Here, we have compiled 9 activities that you can do right away for a strong and formidable team to be built. Most importantly, these activities are indoors so you can still organize them be it rain or shine!
1. Trampoline Park
What better way to know your group mates than seeing them behaving like children bouncing around? There has been a spike in the number of trampoline parks in Singapore and they have very diverse features from basketball dunking stations to “Ninja Warrior” obstacle courses. You will find your friends or colleagues in a more jovial mood as they reconnect with their childhood days. Who knows, the quiet friend of yours might shock you with his or her sleek gymnastic moves. Here, you can relax and unwind with your friends or colleagues in a less serious mood while engaging in an intense cardio session! Prices are relatively affordable with bulk and student discounts available. Grab your team and start hopping towards the nearest trampoline park now!

2. Escape Room
Working together has never been so realistic. Here, your team will be locked in a room for an hour and you must work together to solve the puzzles to get out of the room. There are many differing themes from horror to mystery, and all of them are guaranteed to make everyone work together to escape the room together. It does not matter if you succeed or not, it’s the experience of working together that matters the most.

3. Laser Tag
Commonly known as the tame version of paintball, I would advise you not to underestimate the intensity of this activity. Here, you will be pitted against another team and looking out for each other would play a huge role in determining who wins. Your team needs to attack and defend at the same time while clearing the mission objective. To make this activity even exhilarating, there are different ways of accomplishing a mission (Capture the Flag, Team Death Match, etc.) and various weapons that complement each other; exactly just like how a team should work. A session of this would guarantee to put a smile on your team’s faces.

4. Bubble Soccer
Although the name is labelled as Bubble Soccer, it refers to the inflatable suits that teams will wear in the games. There are many different variations you can play in the suit, for example, bubble dodgeball, bubble soccer, bubble captain, etc. The idea is to be fun and physical at the same time where players can bump each other safely. Under the watchful eye of facilitators, teams can enjoy a friendly sport where memories can be made especially when there is a lot of bumping going about in the court.
The last of the sports segments, bowling has been a mainstay in our hearts and minds when it comes to team bonding events. There can be a friendly competition between various teams or just a lighthearted session to try and strike down the most number of pins. Bowling centres are also coming up innovative ways for bowlers to enjoy themselves, like glow in the dark bowling with dance club settings in Orchid Bowl’s Cosmic Bowling night.

6. Playing Music Together
If the group is generally musically-inclined, why not rock it out together by forming a mega band? Be it a half day or full day retreat, Team Music offers a corporate rock band programme where no musical experience is needed. Here, anyone can scream to “Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” like Steven Tyler or even mimicking Slash on the electric guitar. You may pick up a new skill or two on different instruments have a rocking good time.
Team Music Pte Ltd
The common pastime of any Singaporeans of any age. With the rise in a number of karaoke studios in Singapore, we are spoilt for choices for locations to belt out our favourite songs in front of your friends. Karaoke studios do have larger rooms to host groups of more than 20 pax. Although this might not be as interactive as the other options that were presented earlier, it is still an activity that you should consider to unwind and take your mind off work.
8. Join a Culinary School
Other than sports and music, another way to your teams’ heart is through their stomach. Here in D’open kitchen, you will find many culinary activities conducted by professional chefs. D’open Kitchen specially created this team bonding activity which involves a very interesting concept of challenging the resident chef. Here, you will be in teams to come up with a standard dish and 2 other dishes in 90 minutes and a winner will be chosen. To sweeten the deal, there would a feast together with your friends after an exciting culinary challenge. What more can you ask for?

9. Volunteer for a Beneficiary
Another indoor activity with a cause is volunteering for a beneficiary of your choice. Taking a day off to give back to the community is also a surefire way to improve relationships. Your team would have to take charge of a certain project, come up with plans to engage with the beneficiaries via fund raising, programmes or stage activities.
What is most important about team building is not about the results but the journey together. Be it fun games or serious puzzle solving, team building activities allow everyone to understand each other better and know something more about the person beside you. Most importantly, the common experience and memories made should be the most important takeaway. So what are you waiting for, start planning your next team building activity right now!
