So I hate to post this as a project here since its so simple, but I’m hoping it will inspire someone else to have some fun at work this week.

Out of about the 40 people who are here on a normal day, there have been 7 of us here this week. To finish out the week, we decided to have a ping pong tournament tomorrow. I ran home and made a quick trophy over lunch. Hopefully we can make it a traveling trophy and an annual tradition!

No project too simple for us to be fascinated with :-)

The tournament is tomorrow at 11am. I just went and played a “practice round” with another guy. I think it’s safe to say my handy work won’t be perched on my desk after tomorrow!

I like it Marcus. I did a football for our fantasy football league that gets passed down each year to the champ. Good luck in the tourney tomorrow. A little sandpaper to rough up your paddle works wonders ;).

Great idea! We had a ping pong tourney at work and I think that a trophy would be great for the next one. Thanks for posting.

Hey Doe, definitely do it. You’ll get a chuckle out of seeing how serious people get when 25 cents worth of scrap is on the line.

Cool and fun piece to display on a ping pong enthusiast’s cabinet. Simple yet beautiful.

I need to make one of these. We have some heated doubles games throughout our down time. It is taken very serious and this would give more ammunition to the bragging after wards… Great job.
