Creatives put their table tennis skills to the test

There's been lots of balls flying in adland this month as Fish&Clips presented the Flying Paddle table tennis tournament, which saw smashing performances from Ogilvy, Y&R, Colenso, Chemistry, DDB and Fish. However, it was Ogilvy's night as its representatives were crowned both doubles and singles champions for 2016.

Mikey Havoc was on hand to host, announcing the eternal glory that would come from victory on the tables.

The doubles semis saw Fish’s Fishy Peas competing against BBDO's Beta Beta Delta Omega. The latter took this game, and moved into the finals stage.

It was then an inter-agency battle as both Ogilvy teams went head to head before the winning team continued its winning streak to out the Colenso team.

According to Fish&Clips, the singles semis saw a nail biting game between BBDO and Ogilvy, with Ogilvy coming up on top.

Another Ogilvy representative took to the table in the second semi, going up against Chemistry. Ogilvy was on fire again to see it be an inter-agency final.
