A World Record attempt for the longest continuous rally! This is where it all started for Pongathon at Richmix in December 2011. We reached 96 on that day, just short of the record by some 14 shots, but it set in motion what was to be an exciting journey into the ping pong unknown, a journey that was to introduce thousands of people to our alternative, humourous, sometimes completely off the wall, world of social ping pong!
We introduced ping pong robots from China that became affectionately known as the Pongbot Challenge, a 60 second duel between challenger and robot, great DJ's spinning 'Chunes to Pong to', buddy up tournaments, private parties for small and not so small companies, ping pong playing Easter Bunnies, Mo bro's and Mo sis's, Londons' 1st ever inter-company city wide tournament Pongathon City Challenge, 'Challenge the Pro' with frying pans and mobile phones and the endless to many to mention ping pong shenanigans.....!
It’s been a pleasure working with Adrian and his team over the last few years. With his Pongathon residency Adrian has brought a great many new people to Rich Mix and in doing so, he’s given them a fantastic, fun time.
