Ping pong + prizes + fancy dress + live music + great beer = the inaugural Crafty Cabal Ping Pong Party – and you’re all invited!
Way back in the depths of time (well, summer 2020/21), The Crafty Pint ran a competition in which venues could win a table tennis table decked out in the artwork of our beer club, The Crafty Cabal.
Thanks to the lockdowns that followed, we weren't able to pick a winner until this summer, and that winner is… Wolf of the Willows.
To celebrate the unveiling of the all-weather Pongo table at their Mordialloc Taproom on
January 29, March 5 (thanks for another delay, Omicron!), we’re hosting a party featuring a table tennis tournament, prizes and live music.
The Order Of Play
- Midday – doors open
- 2.30pm – The Inaugural Crafty Cabal Table Tennis Championship (details on how to register a team below)
- 5pm – Live music from Holy Moses Heartache
We’re looking for ten teams of two to compete – head here to register.
There will be two round robin leagues of five, playing four single set matches (to 11 points), with the top two teams from each league going through to the semi-finals. The winners of these single set matches will then play for the trophy, the glory – and a year’s Crafty Cabal membership each – in a three-set final.
The cost to enter is $20 per team of two, which includes a beer for each player once their tournament is over. There are just ten spots for teams so get in quick!
As well as the prizes for the tournament, there will be other giveaways throughout the day for the best fancy dress – it could be tennis-themed, it could be the Disco Monks from The Crafty Cabal, it can be whatever your imagination takes you – with one prize for teams and one for spectators.
And, if you’re a Crafty Cabal member, we'll shout the first ten members through the door their first beer and you’ll be able to use your 2-4-1 beers offer at the bar too. Just show the bar staff the deal in your member’s area before ordering.
The Wolf of the Willows Taproom is at 39 De Havilland Road, Mordialloc.
