Strong finish from Tom secures Ping-Pong crown!


Tuesday 26th March 2019

Event start: 18:00

Smash, Wimbledon





Tom Goulder showed his strength in a different sporting code by winning a hotly-contested table tennis competition at the AFC Wimbledon Business Club.

Tom, Marketing Manager at Stronger Fitness & Martial Arts, beat off the challenge of 30 other players in an event held at Smash Wimbledon.

“It means the world to be AFC Wimbledon Business Club’s Table Tennis Champion! I would have settled just for beating Ryan from RyGas in the semi-final! That one was close as it went to a tie break. I give 100 per cent in all the sports I play and I battled for every point tonight!

“It’s great to win the hospitality prize and I will probably treat someone from the gym who has never been before. I’ve been a Wimbledon supporter since 1992 and I’m a Dons Trust member. I went to a game at Plough Lane once and I can’t wait for us to go back there.”

Members from the Business Club created a great atmosphere at the event, sharing potential business opportunities while enjoying a drink and a slice or two of pizza!

This was another great networking event, held in a nice and really relaxed atmosphere

Julie Baker, Director at Metro Bank in Wimbledon

Since its inception 18 months ago, the business club has gone from strength to strength with its membership growing and people in the local community attending a wide variety of different monthly events.

Julie Baker, a Director at Metro Bank in Wimbledon, said: “This was another great networking event, held in a nice and really relaxed atmosphere. I managed to get to the quarter-finals and it was a close battle against Ivor, but he just edged me out 11-8.”

Julie brought along her friend Alida Ballard from SAS Business Box. Alida attended her first AFC Wimbledon Business Club event and it was clearly an enjoyable experience as she said it was an ‘amazing’ night.

It promises to be another fun event on Thursday with a Games Night at Geeks Ltd in Morden when London Tool Hire will be aiming to defend their 2018 crown!
