DoingSomething.co.uk announces smashing new mass Ping Pong date(May 08, 2014)
London (PRWEB UK) 8 May 2014
Following their recent success setting a Worlds Biggest Ping Pong Date record on Easter Sunday, the team are back. And this time its Bigger, Bouncier, and even Pongy-er.
Singletons can get to know each other over a three way Ping Pong table (the puns write themselves), Space Hopper races and double the amount of Games Makers. The Games Makers act as Ping Pong coaches/Matchmakers bouncing singletons into one another and breaking the ice.
Throw in an egg and spoon race (with ping pong balls) and a six hour DJ set from the legendary Pete Pong and youre guaranteed a pretty batty night out.
The Ping Pong date is a welcome relief for internet daters tired of Dead time Dating i.e drinks in a bar, where the night tends to be peppered with awkward small talk, lengthy silences and moments of sheer panic.
Taking part in an activity is a more natural and easier way to get to know someone new, says DoingSomething.co.uks CEO and co-founder, Matt Janes. And smashing a table tennis ball at someones chest at 40mph even more so! he jokes.
From a broader industry dating perspective, the move towards offline complementing online is key to differentiation in the ultra competitive online dating sector. Whilst DoingSomething.co.uk achieves success with highly original awkward-free formats, other big players including Match.com have tried to get into the event space too.
The party runs from 7.30pm 2am on Bank Holiday Sunday where those yet to impress with their ping-pong moves can strut their stuff to the sounds of DJ Pete Pong.
Bigger, Bouncier, Pongier is one of a series of mass Ping Pong dates. Next in the calendar comes Hawaii Pong. Where a Limbo dancing competition and cocktail making class will accompany Ping Pong action. Future themes are closely guarded secrets.
Watch out for a mass Twitter virtual tag game. Where every 20th person who re tweets a #passitpong hashtag gets a free entry on the night.
Tickets from £12 including entry, free pong all night long and an after party will go on sale this week with official ticket partner, http://www.designmynight.com.
