Archie's Pongathon

The first ever Team Archie Pongathon was on Saturday 21st April. Pongers from all over descended on Greenhouse Sports' new HQ, The Greenhouse Centre, for some competitive ping pong, drinks and music.
Beer Pong
The Beer Pong Round was a favourite! 

 

Team Archie has long been a supporter of Greenhouse Sports and are in awe of the amazing difference they make to the community. Keeping young people engaged and motivated and giving them a place to go has transformed the lives of so many who Greenhouse support. The Pongathon was the brainchild of Charlie Hobhouse who is head of the Greenhouse Sports youth committee, Greenhouse Connect. Together, we put on a fantastic evening for 150 18-25 year olds with a raffle, various rounds of beer pong and a dance floor that was full until the end of the party!

The event was held in Greenhouse Sports' brand new HQ in Marylebone. It was an opportunity to showcase the work of the charity and inspire friends and family to get involved in the youth committee. Greenhouse Sports is home to 10 of the top 24UK table tennis champions. From Archie's Pongathon we have educated attendees on the incredible work done by Greenhouse Sports and are expecting an influx of new mentors in the coming months!

Thank you to our sponsors Casper Sunley (Lighting), DE12 Beer and Mr Trotters Pork Scratchings!

The event was by Friends of Friends London
