Jody had seen us in action at Ping Pong Fight Club and called in to say she wanted to recreate an experience for some of Unilever's 'incubator' start-ups as a finale to the end of a week of team building events.
Situated on the 8th floor, the skyline of London was a magnificent backdrop to what was going to be a fun, fast, furious session of ping pong pandemonium! We had to think on our feet and randomise all the attendees into doubles teams, then into groups then into a knockout tournament, whilst running the Pongbot Challenge, another concurrent singles tournament and all in the space of 120 minutes for 100 people! Its what we do!
I challenged Ade and the Pongathon team to organise a ping pong tournament that would make our very corporate office feel like a startup…. and they massively over-delivered! We had to kick people out at the end of the night, which is a definite first. Thank you
