Leeds solicitors hoping practice makes perfect as they brush up on ping pong skills ahead of Radio Aire challenge match

Leeds ping pong team


Staff in Hudgell Solicitors’ Leeds office are ditching their dinner time breaks to put in some much-needed ping pong practice ahead of a challenge match against Radio Aire presenters later this month.

Breakfast show presenters Caroline and Ant (Caroline Verdon and Anthony John Arthur) have been competing against the top players from companies across Leeds since last October as part of a Table Tennis League which aims to get businesses involved in sports activities.

Now, a table has been delivered to Hudgell Solicitors’ premises in Park Place to enable staff to brush up on their skills ahead of a head-to-head on Monday, January 22.

The legal firm, which represents victims of serious injury, medical negligence and criminal injuries, is one of seven businesses taking part, alongside John Lewis, Toyota, Direct Line, Barclays, British Gas and Leeds Trinity University.

Each business selects a doubles team to take on Ant and Caroline over three games, each lasting three minutes.

The teams with the highest combined winning margin from all three games will go through to a final in May to play for a table tennis table to keep, which Hudgell Solicitors intends to donate to a local charity or community group if successful.

With just less than two weeks to identify their premier ping pong team to face Caroline and Ant, staff have been brushing up on their skills.

Amongst those competing are Personal Injury Manager Karen Smith and Head of Travel Litigation Paul McClorry, who each feel they have the skills required to make the Hudgell Solicitors final team and go head to head with the radio stars on the day.

“If you think Forrest Gump could play table tennis, wait until you see me,” said a confident Paul.

“I don’t really need the practice in the weeks before as I am confident I’ll win our matches hands down and be one of our team that faces Ant and Caroline. We’ll give them a lesson in ping pong.

“I’ve looked around our office and it pretty much looks a case of finding out who’ll be my playing partner on the day.”

Karen is also keen to secure a place to play in the Hudgell team and says the arrival of the table – which has temporarily replaced the boardroom – has caused some excitement.

“I’ve never seen our team so keen to get in the boardroom, but it is good to see them getting away from their desks and their phones over lunchtime to get in some practice,” she said.

“I’m hoping I’ll be good enough to make our team, but in fairness we’ve got some decent players so hopefully, whoever faces the presenters on the day will register a good score. It is good to be taking part and we’re delighted to be supporting Radio Aire.”

Ellie Marshall, Marketing Executive at Radio Aire, an independent local radio station which is owned and operated by Bauer Radio to serve Leeds and West Yorkshire, said: “We are delighted that Hudgell Solicitors have supported our Table Tennis league and we look forward to our breakfast team visiting later this month”

Radio Aire says it is promoting Table Tennis as it is a sport all people can play, is good for keeping fit and for bringing people together at work, at home, at the pub or at parties.
