Fin Pong for Sport Relief

As a change of pace, we decided to do something a little different to raise money for Sport Relief this year – introducing the 2022 Fin Pong Tournament.

We invited the whole club to put down the egg shaped ball and pick up a paddle for our ping pong knockout competition. 32 players, coaches and staff stepped up to try and get their fins on the Fin Pong trophy (not to mention the office bragging rights).

We’ve picked out some of the most intense battles below, as well as the all important final where our 2022 Fin Pong Champion was crowned. Enjoy!
