The Business Side Of The Racket
Fun is serious business! Nothing is more fun or has a more universal appeal than Table Tennis. This is a sport with the history and the Olympic credentials to prove itself and a game that is known to everyone from the basement to the dormitory, in the offices of Silicon Valley and from the USO club to the local community center. Injury-free, handicap accessible, without season or limit, everyone has played “Ping Pong. “ It has world-wide acceptance as both an International competitive sport whose stars earn millions of dollars annually and a grass roots enthusiasm. From the playing halls of Europe and Asia right down to the father and son bunt-fests in basements throughout America, Table Tennis has something to offer everyone.
And in this country, no company is better able, better equipped or more experienced in bringing Table Tennis into your corporate environment than North American Table Tennis, LLC, (NATT) the only professional events management company in America to specialize in this activity. Let’s see what Table Tennis can mean for you!
You’re not out to entertain the masses, but to build a sense of camaraderie and morale in your own workplace. Nothing builds team spirit like sport! But you might hesitate to have the secretarial pool play the warehouse guys in a game of football. Wrestling would just be an invitation to a lawsuit. But Table Tennis? Now you’re talking!
NATT has the inventory (we need it for our massive professional tournaments) to put hundreds of tables in your hands for a company wide pong fest. Organized into teams, doubles pairs or every employee for himself, NATT also has the crowd control skills and tournament software to take that jostling mass of people and turn it into a coherent group experience.
Regardless of age, size, skill or physical limitation, table tennis lets your people compete on a level playing field without turning it into a game of chance.
You should have seen their faces when they came to the Company Seminar and found 10 ping pong tables set up with Friday’s dinner. Get the troops juiced, energized and interacting! Beats the daylights out of hiring a DJ for a night of typical ice-breaking.
NATT delivers the goods with enough tables to go around and paddles for everyone which are affordable enough for you to make as gifts too!
Looking for a unique traffic-stopping attraction for your consumer or industry trade show? Your company’s contribution to the Metro Festival? A portable, enjoyable family-oriented entertainment that is memorable and unique? Then try a Table Tennis Exhibition!
NATT has access to professional ‘trick shot’ artists and clowns, all skilled and experienced in drawing laughs and gasps of wonder from onlookers. These performers have great track records and proven patter, sight gags like over (and under!) sized rackets, balls on strings and ham-it-up attitudes that work in settings from intimate to arena sized.
We can provide you with attractive, personable players of both genders, Nationally ranked and Olympic level Americans who not only amaze the crowd with their skills, but also interact well with bystanders, challengers and the curious public. Ethnically diverse, uniformly polite and highly skilled, we promise a show-stopping display of athletic prowess when they take the spotlight for you.
Since it is your show, brand it as such, with custom-imprinted balls, nets and tables! A little more lead time involved, but well worth the effort and expense when the cameras come out. Your name and logo in a lasting position in your customer’s memory. Not bad, eh?
