Dan, Carol, and Betty in Admin while Earl works in marketing. I'm curious why the sports were included if they're not part of the answer.

I noticed that too, digited. In addition, clues 6-9 are irrelevant. I guess some puzzles are more about what's not important than what is.

Alex - Personnel - Table Tennis
Earl - Marketing - Cricket
Fay - Personnel - Volleyball
George - Marketing - Tennis

The clues allow you to find out everyones departments and favourite sports so I don't know why the question only asks about where they work.

Useless Clues !

No doubt that the question asked in the end makes those clues 6 to 9 absolutely useless. Though not asked here but finding the favorite sport of each employee could be challenging task!
