What is it about startups and ping pong? All we know is table tennis is a bit of an obsession in our company and we know we’re not the only ones. We have a table on the ground floor of the London HQ and at any given time, a couple of people are likely to be locked in a rally. Sometimes the best ideas come when you take a break (plus we’re competitive and like to win!).
As table tennis is a big part of our work culture, we were delighted to be invited to take part in Ping Pong Fight Club tonight – a tournament organised by Michael Action Smith from Mind Candy, Kathryn Parsons from Decoded and Alex Will from Listora.
The first rule of this Fight Club? You talk about Ping Pong Fight Club, everywhere. SwiftKey is fielding a team of four players, fighting for glory against the like of Moo and Hailo in London’s Shoreditch tonight – Wei, Julien, Alex and Adam.
Our staff will be out in force to support the team and we’ll update you with how you get on and share some of the photos of the event.
