VML has retained its championship title by defeating Leo Burnett at film production firm Paper Dragon’s 2017 Inter-Agency Ping Pong Spectacular.
Paper Dragon in association with Trolley’d and in support of RUOK? hosted its 2017 Inter-Agency Ping Pong Challenge on Wednesday September 13th during RUOK? week. Teams from dozens of agencies registered with their puntastic team names to compete for ping pong supremacy and the $1000 cash prize.
The event was put on to raise awareness and money for R U OK? to see which advertising doubles team reigns supreme with their paddles. Cherry2000 played a live electro punk set just before the grand final & MC Penny Tration kept everyone playing by the rules.
It was a nail-biting final between a fit & furious Leo Burnett team “No Idea” – Nigel Clark & Dan Pankraz, and defending champions VML’s “Balls To The Future – Jamie Muscat & Courtney Print. The grand final was close, emotions were high, the score was 20 –20 and both teams fought right to the bitter end.
The prize for best dressed went to the Flat Earthers from Joy Agency with their futuristic alfoil fashion numbers. However, the JoyBoz from Joy Agency in their quarantine suits, and the Roses & Robots from Richards Rose agency in their collective high-vis, were hot on their alfoil tails.
Paper Dragon’s Nicola Woolfrey said: “It was another great event, this time for RUOK?. It’s a fantastic cause as it’s very important to have a dialogue in regards to checking in on the mental health of those close to you. That combined with a bit of inter-agency rivalry, sport & festivities, makes for good party and we look forward to the next event”.
