On 27 September, businesses in Manchester will face off in Ping Pong Fight Club, going head to head in a unique team-based inter-company ping pong tournament.
Who will be crowned the Ping Pong Fight Club champions of Manchester?
This is Ping Pong Fight Club’s first visit to the city, supported by Chinese beer Tsingtao, and a host of the city’s businesses, including ITV and some of the Coronation Street cast, Intechnica, Shoot The Moon and Interactive Investor, have signed up to take part in this fun, party-style networking event.
China’s best-known beer band, Tsingtao (pronounced Ching Dow), is hitting Manchester this month with an action-packed programme of events – and it’s all geared around ping pong will also be entertaining businesses in the city by dropping into their offices armed with ice-cold Tsingtao and even some full-sized professional table tennis tables.
From maverick start-ups to sector leaders, hundreds will compete, play and party alongside their work colleagues and will have exclusive access to all the activities, including a team-based tournament, Virtual Reality Ping Pong and a head-to-head challenge with a ping pong robot in the ‘Pongbot’ Challenge.
The event also features pop-up bars, face-painters for bruises and battle scars, street food - and an energetic soundtrack from the Ping Pong Fight Club DJs.
Organiser and founder of Ping Pong Fight Club, Ade Leigh said: “For businesses and the general public Ping Pong Fight Club is totally inclusive, meaning everyone can be part of the action. This is a fun and energetic event, without any air of stuffiness.
“We’ve had great interest in sign-ups so far, there’s definitely a competitive spirit here.”
Companies can enter a team of four players with a range of packages from ‘The Lightweight’ (up to 10 supporters and 4 team players) to ‘The Rookie’ (up to 30 and 4 team players) – all include a Tsingtao Beer, bespoke company Ping Pong Fight Club t-shirts and headbands.
