Zebra People – Sports Day ’14

Over the past few weeks we’ve had a few new starters to the team so we thought it would be a good opportunity to get all the team together and celebrate our new colleagues. Raj and Pritesh (our Tech and Creative recruiters) organised the afternoon, which started with a quick trip to Bar Kick for a bit of table football, and then we were hurried off to our next destination.

The main event of the evening was bowling followed by pool and dinner at All Star Lanes round on Brick Lane. Despite everyone’s calm exteriors, the competitive streaks would soon make an appearance. The games started off slow, but soon heated up, with myself and our Finance Manager both getting a strike in the second set! I won’t name any winners for fear of causing a drama, but I will say that everyone was on top form*, it was a great evening, and a brilliant chance for everyone to catch up away from the office!

*We’re even thinking of starting up a local bowling league…
