Ping Pong Fight Club

Ping Pong Fight Club

Details

Ping Pong Fight Club in association with Tsingtao Beer, a unique inter-company ping pong tournament, is coming to Leeds for the first time as part of the Leeds Digital Festival.

Supported by Media Yorkshire, which represents the creative, marketing and media sector, Ping Pong Fight Club is not for the faint-hearted and not open to the general public. The event mimics the underground feel of the Fight Club movie with an eight-table ‘fighting arena’ where ping pong ‘gladiators’ will go head to head for their company’s bragging rights to be crowned Ping Pong Fight Club Champions.

Now in its sixth year and coming to Leeds for the first time, Ping Pong Fight Club is backed by the world’s second largest beer brand, Tsingtao and involves 16 local companies, 64 players and hundreds of supporters in a spectacular team building, networking and fundraising night out.

The event features a unique mix of DJs, pop-up and speed networking ping pong bars, street food, ‘fight-off’ challenges, ping pong robots, social zones and Tsingtao’s famous Beer Pong Championships. Face painters will be drawing company logos, battle scars and butterflies and with the ‘Chancers Championships’ giving first round losers another chance at glory – everyone is involved until the very last ball hit!

Start-ups and global brands, such as Facebook, Spotify, Google, Deliveroo, Funding Circle, Lendinvest, Expedia, Ticketmaster, Moo.com, Laundrapp and Zopa have discovered that Ping Pong Fight Club is an exciting and inclusive way to engage, bond and motivate their teams. From the intern to the CEO, everyone gets to play, network, have fun and socialise with their colleagues and like-minded people from other companies.

There are packages to suit every company’s budget, with a Rookie package for start-ups (up to 30 employees), to a Champions package for sector leaders (up to 150 employees). Guests will receive complimentary drinks on arrival - including Tsingtao Beer, of course - as well as company-branded T-shirts and wristbands, professional pictures and videos for companies to use in their corporate communications after the event.

There are also huge prizes up for grabs including professional table tennis tables, camera drones and GoPros. Five per cent of the registration fees are also are donated to the winners and PPFC’s nominated good causes.
