Tug of War Team Building Exercise
Tug of War is a long standing favorite team building exercise. A real sense of teamwork is created as young and old, big or small, work together as a team to come up as the victor in this battle of strength.
The formal rules for Tug of War state there must be two teams of eight people each, but for team building purposes this rule is more often than not broken. A rope of about ten centimeters in circumference and marked with a center line is used for this exercise. Another marking is placed on either side of the center line and about four meters away from the center line. The center line must be directly over a line marked on the ground before the Tug of War can proceed. The object of the exercise is for one team to pull the other team’s marker over the marking line on the ground.
