Bats at the ready as Ping Pong Fight Club returns to Liverpool
Taking place at Camp and Furnace in the Baltic Triangle, the event will see teams from across Liverpool will play, party and compete to be Ping Pong Fight Club Champions
Ping Pong Fight Club, a spectacular inter-company ping pong tournament, party and networking event is returning to Liverpool on Thursday, April 4.
The event, taking place at Camp and Furnace in the Baltic Triangle, will kick-start the Fight Club’s 2019 UK Tour and will see teams from across Liverpool who will play, party and compete for ultimate bragging rights, to be crowned Ping Pong Fight Club Champions.
According to Adrian Leigh, chief executive of Ping Pong Fight Club, 16 companies take part, yielding 64 competitors with a brand-new pro table tennis table as the Champion’s prize, delivered to the victor’s offices, compliments of Ping Pong Fight Club.
He added: “It’s not just about the tournament though. Hundreds of supporters will enjoy a spectacular evening of entertainment featuring; VR ping pong, DJs, social ping pong zones for ‘friendly’ and pro-player challenges, speed ping pong networking, inter-company ‘buddy-up’ doubles tournaments.
“And there will also be ping pong robot team challenges (taking on all-comers in a 60 second duel), pop-up bars, face- painters for ‘butterflies and battle scars’, street food, beer-pong championships and huge prizes.”
For those ping pong gladiators that don’t make it through the first rounds there is the ‘Chancers Championships’ for a second crack at glory. Every point won counts towards the overall Team Championships and inclusion in the Ping Pong Fight Club ‘Hall of Fame’.
“Last year, Ping Pong Fight Club also trialled coaching support to help companies encourage more women to play and compete,” said Adrian. “It was a fantastic success and we also saw more women signing up to play than ever before.
“To further nurture and develop skills, we are pledging two professional coaching lessons from Table Tennis England (the national governing body of table tennis) to help more women get competition-ready.
