Depends on the people participating and the sport being played. If the group is in general competitive, and the sport involved requires hand eye coordination or similar moteur skills, the employee who finds this difficult,and doesn't have a strong character will be marginalised and just the target of further mockery and jibes. (Of course it could give an opportunity for a reserved character to shine) If on the other hand there is already a good level of group cohesion, things can only be better afterwards. Imo there can be no one correct reply to your question, but generally sport tends to magnify traits that are pre existant in group situations.

I am not sure about it helping team work, but I think it helps health, which can only be a good thing.

no, I believe they're two different states of mind and drives of reward- formal teamwork needs to be much more strategized and less improvised to be successful, while in sport you'll be improvising more than having methodology in many cases.

However man I have no actual idea from an educated point of view regarding psychology, have people tested this? I'm sure they have by now right.

I think that we can't generalize it for all people who are playing in team sports. Being a teamplayer in sports does not mean being a teamplayer at work. Sports and work are different.
