Our last pong fest took place at London’s Barracuda Bar on Thursday October 1, ponging off at 7pm and running late into the night.
Unprecedented demand meant that this time around we extended the number of playing tables to ensure that more people could revel in pong love: and this meant more games, more pong and more scoops, as well as some cracking pong anthems courtesy of DJ Cally.
New Jersey Rocks and Team Reepig were arguably the best performing teams on the night, with the latter attracting some admiring glances after they donned their newly-acquired, uber-cool Beer Pong Britain branded t-shirts….
Her Majesty’s finest even popped in, although The Metropolitan Police couldn’t be tempted to indulge in a cheeky game of beer pong, and for this we salute them – London is in safe hands, kids. Maybe they’ll get involved at one of our upcoming events, details of which will be announced shortly – so keep checking this site or sign up to our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Love You Pong Time
Beer Pong Britain’s first event was a huge success, with one happy ponger proclaiming it ‘the second-best night I’ve attended where ping pong balls are a key part of the action’. (Thankfully, reports that the Daily Mail has denounced Beer Pong as ‘the root of all evil’ remain wide of the mark.)
The players’ facial expressions said it all: concentration, anguish and elation were all on show as balls missed, rimmed or were sunk over four engrossing hours of Beer Pong action.
Among the teams to catch our eye – not necessarily for their Beer Pong prowess – were The Imperturbables, Diamond Lights and The Aussies. The former delighted with their uncurbed enthusiasm for their new-found sport, while the latter exhibited admirable doggedness despite a series of over-pitched Mitchell Johnson-esque deliveries.
