Fun Events Held at The Address

The Address engages its active community of professionals by hosting monthly events consisting of breakfast gatherings, various games, fitness sessions, stand-up comedy sessions, and more. Besides, The Address celebrates a set of annual events, like World Environment Day, Yoga Day, Friendship Day, Women’s Day, Independence Day, World Book Day, and more. 

1. Plantation Drive

This year, The Address organized a plantation drive on the occasion of India’s Independence Day. The plantation drive served as the perfect way to commemorate our country’s 75 glorious years of independence. 

We understand that tree plantation is the need of the hour. It is important to protect our environment against various kinds of pollution and global warming. This year, we gifted saplings to all our community members who promised to plant them in their respective gardens. We believe a community that plants a tree, plants a better future. 

Here are a few glimpses of our plantation drive. 

2. Yoga Session

We conducted a refreshing yoga session on the occasion of International Yoga Day on the 21st of June. We invited Seema Gupta from Triyog Yoga Studio to lead the event and help us understand the importance of yoga.

She enlightened us about the history of yoga and how it has helped people transform their lives holistically. The yoga asanas we did helped us calm our minds and relax. It was a rejuvenating session that took away our fatigue and tension and made us approach the work day with positivity and enthusiasm.

We took a short video of our yoga session.

3. Comedy Coworks

Laughter is the best medicine. Dosing up on comedy with our favorite comedians is one of our community’s favorite events. 

This event is named Comedy Coworks because it delivers a wholesome dose of laughter and acts as a stress-buster for busy professionals. These comedy shows stimulate the release of feel-good hormones, such as serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins, thus relaxing our minds.

As a part of this event, we invite famous standup comedians who make our community get a taste of the laughter medicine. It truly uplifts their spirits, leaving them with radiant smiles. 

Comedy Coworks is the happy pill we prescribe to our community once in a while. 

4. Breakfast Club

Giada De Laurentiis, Italian-American Chef, has rightly said that food brings people together on many different levels.

We started breakfast clubs as an initiative to bring the community together away from the monotony of the 9-5 job and network with like-minded professionals. Little did we know that these clubs could be our best chance at supporting the local vendors of our town. Since then, every breakfast club held at The Address comprises yummy delicacies prepared by local vendors. 

The community at The Address gets together every month to bond over some chai and delicious breakfast. These breakfast clubs give the members the best chance to mingle, share ideas, talk about work, discuss the latest movies, or anything that is on their minds.

5. Table Tennis Tournament

Games are also considered to be an effective means for boosting energy and productivity and facilitating bonding among community members. It increases the morale of the members and fosters a positive environment at work.

Hence, we decided on hosting table tennis tournaments for our community members to bring out their competitive side. The members showed unmatched enthusiasm and spirit throughout the tournament. We rewarded the winners with specially curated trophies.

6. Fun Friday 

Fun Fridays at The Address are events where our entire community gathers to spend time together playing games as we approach the weekend. We organize fun games, such as Housie or Bingo, Bollywood Trivia, and others to help our members ease up the stress, unwind, and get them in the weekend mode.

Here is a peek into some of the best Fun Friday activities we organized for our community.

  • Housie

Housie, also referred to as Bingo, is one of the most played games at our coworking space. This board game is our go-to game after a hectic week at our respective offices. Hence, we play it whenever possible.

These pictures will tell you how much we enjoy playing this game. The ‘full house’ says it all. Isn’t it?

  • Dumb Charades

Although this game feels run-of-the-mill, we spice it up by adding our twists. For example, we change movie names with office-related terminologies, such as deadlines, reports, team meetings, and more.

Our community thoroughly enjoys these sessions while having a hearty laugh together. How participants enact the terms is hilarious and a treat to watch.

  • Bollywood Trivia

The day we discovered our love for Bollywood, we couldn’t help but include Bollywood Trivia in our fun Fridays. With this in mind, we create interesting questions for the quizzes that include everything about Bollywood – talented actors, vibrant sets, melodious songs, storylines, gossip, and more. This event is a treat for Bollywood buffs. 

  • Fitness Events

Most of us ignore personal fitness because of our hectic work schedules. Through our fitness events, we aim to promote a healthy lifestyle in our community. Working out helps in relieving stress and fatigue, boosting employee morale, and keeping everyone safe from issues caused by a sedentary lifestyle. 

The Address has a fully-functional gym area that offers various equipment for exercising. Besides, the gym has spacious areas for yoga, Zumba, or other forms of exercise. 

Our fitness events promote our community to work out on a timely basis and stay fit.  

Wrapping Up 

These were some of the events from the long list of activities we conduct for our growing community. At The Address, we believe in having the right mix of fun events and interactive sessions to build a fun-loving and knowledgeable coworking community. These events have helped us lay a strong foundation for forming a close-knit community.
