Face your teams against one another both in the water and on the land in a series of Californian style beach games. Test your might and mettle with the tug’o’war, then harness your collective brainpower and display an effective show of teamwork with the surf life saving challenge. You might be a pro with a volleyball, but will you beat the dizzy stick?


The Cornish Challenge is open to non-swimmers and its flexibility means the beach games can be designed to suit all types of groups, fitness levels and ages. With a variety of games and a huge degree of flexibility, our Cornish Challenge is a great choice for groups with different outlooks on the ocean. Some of your gang may love the water, but maybe some would prefer to play games on dry land; this is one challenge where the choice is entirely up to you!



Flexing muscles AND brain cells? Yes – you’ll need both! You will take part in a paddle relay race, a tug ‘o’ war, the surfboard tunnel challenge, a lifeguard’s flag sprint, beach volleyball and aqua targets. To top it off you will take part in a game that tests not only your throwing skills, but your nerves too! The games are chosen to suit the dynamic of the group; whether you shy away from competition, or you always have to be the winner – there’s something for everyone!
