Legal secretary Emma Kingsland, who organised the team, said: "I took part in the Festival of Sport last year and had a great time.
"It's a great way to build a sense of team spirit among colleagues - we've got chefs, secretaries and solicitors all on the team.
"We'll be having a few practice sessions and are really looking forward to the event."
The two-day Festival is part-funded by Sport England as part of Challenge Swindon, and includes sports such as beach volleyball, dragon boat racing, angling, badminton, squash, hockey, netball, tennis, and many more.
