Ping Pong Fight Club’s Ade Leigh is in the running for a prestigious business award – and you can show your support at the virtual awards night next week.

Ade is on the shortlist in the Pivot category in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.

The category recognises entrepreneurs who have adapted their business during the global pandemic, to ensure their company can succeed during, and thrive after, the crisis.

Ping Pong Fight Club’s model before the pandemic was creating inter-company tournaments, parties and networking events but has risen to the challenge of adapting to lockdown conditions.

With those events on pause since March, Ade created Ping Pong Fight Club’s Lockdown Challenge Show – a fully interactive online event experience enabling friends, family and work colleagues to connect, compete and have fun from the comfort of their homes.

The awards are at their regional stage and Ade is in the London and East of England region, up against five other entrepreneurs in the category.

The winners across 14 categories will be revealed during an online ceremony at 7pm on September 23, which anyone can register to join by clicking here.

Ade said: “I’m very proud and honoured to have been nominated for The Great British Entrepreneur Awards finals alongside so much talent. I’d really appreciate anyone logging in on the night to support me.”
