It’s The Return of The Workman’s Club
BATTLE OF THE PADDLES 2016
Get Up Craic Creek With A Paddle!
Tournament runs Jan 12-14
Qualifiers: Tuesday, 12th Jan / Wednesday, 13th Jan
FINAL: Thursday, 14th January
New Year is a time to make resolutions. We are all about making resolutions, but ones that are easy to stick to and a load of craic. If one of YOUR resolutions is to do some more sports, we have the most fun way to ease yourself into things.
We’re only delirra to present the 5th Anniversary of The Battle Of The Paddles. Time to lash on your sweatbands and get ready to channel your inner Andy Murray (or whoever the table tennis equivalent is, you know what we mean)
Here’s how it works: To qualify for the finals on Thursday, 14th January you need to come to ours on either Tuesday, 12 or Wednesday, 13 January. (If you don’t qualify on Tuesday, you can always try again on Wednesday. It’s like that old saying – if at first you don’t succeed then show up again the next night and give it another lash) Entry is free, sure what have you got to lose?
Here’s the scoop: you can pre-register by emailing us – firstname.lastname@example.org or by just coming along by 7 o’clock SHARP on the night. (Pre-registering guarantees you a spot.) You’ll have a chance to practice and eye up the competition (trash talk is ALWAYS welcome). The Tournament kicks off at 8pm on the dot. The tournament will run on until we get a winner! (We LOVE sports that take place in bars and can potentially run until very very late)
Like any self-respecting sportsperson, we assume you’re wondering ‘What’s in it for me, huh?’ Well, lend us your eyes and we shall reveal all! There will be prizes on EACH night – from ourselves, Captain Americas, wagamama and Tower Records. The overall winner will win a night in The Dean Dublin!
For those of you who didn’t take heed of your ma when she said ‘it’s not winning that matters but it’s the taking part that counts’ and would prefer to be a spectator there will be a host of things to see and do. Mad table tennis skillz. Exquisite cocktails. Frothy pints. Deadly atmosphere AND some downright comical choons! It’s kind of like Wimbledon. But more craic and less strawberries.
