Team Challenge Company had the absolute pleasure of hosting a fun-filled night of Evening Entertainment at the stunning Hilton Reading, as a fantastic group from HFMA prepared to take on our ever-popular Pressure Zone! As our guests arrived a sense of nervous anticipation filled the room, everybody’s eyes locked in on the games in wonderment of what challenges lay ahead for the evening.

A warm welcome and introduction brought the teams together, and we set our first challenge of the night – “Turnover” was on display right away, as our 15 teams - now fully raring to go, we kicked our Pressure Zone off in style with a true team challenge which saw all but a few fail to register a score on the board. There was big bonus scores up for grabs here, but also plenty of lives at stake, as each team battled it out to be the fastest finishers! There was only one rule in this game - to use the same hand to turn over each tube! It seemed simple, but apparently not all teams caught the golden rule! Table 4  had been on fire before  decided to whizz in with both hands flying – the boos only heightened as the rest of the team followed by terrible techniques, which saw penalty seconds added on, sending Table 5 crashing to the bottom of the Turnover charts. 

Taking away a massive (and much needed at the time) 1000 points from this challenge was the sensation Table 13, just pipping Table 9 into second place by two seconds! This only made the cheers louder for those that did nail it and beat the opposition, each time earning 1000 points for their success. The rest of the night would continue in similar fashion, as our teams battled it out to save their “lives” and earn as many points as possible in a bid to take home the much-coveted Team Challenge Company Winner’s Trophy. There were numerous highlights throughout the evening, many of which are too crazy to mention. 

The highlight reel starts at our first rotation of Pressure Zone activities, which saw our 15 teams spread out across 5 awesome challenges, facing-off head to head to for victory in Turnover, Swap Box, Splash. High Shot and Steel Swing all looked to be easy tasks, but would the teams crumble under pressure when it was time to step up?

Table 7 stepped up first and proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that this challenge wasn’t as easy as it had first seemed! Table 1, on the other hand, were sensational at the start, with all 6 team members successfully winning a massive points total and their team proving they definitely had previous experience with pressure situations! Splash was a real winner, with some highly skilled guests finding the tiny target with style – the cheers from this one rang around the room for all to hear, as Table 6 and Table 13 out-performed the rest – well done Joe – and to be fair it was mostly the ladies proving to be an absolute demons at finding the blue water with their ping pong ball!  High Shot, usually a treacherous challenge, turned out to be one of the most lucrative for points on the evening, with many teams recording full marks and scoring some big bonus points ahead of the evening meal break, which saw excellent food courtesy of the wonderful Hilton Reading thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Our night of Evening Entertainment rocked back into full swing following the fantastic food with our thrilling Pressure Zone and the evening entertainment continued with further Pressure Zone challenges that included our Grand Finale inside the Pressure Zone with the toughest game of them all – Steel Swing!

Using the remaining lives available to each team, our players would step up to try and bounce their “Cue” ball into another ball set up on podiums before hopefully finding the target in the bottom corner of our Pressure Zone. Each team took to the stage with varying degrees of success – though to be honest, most teams struggled! Team 2 Team 5 both struck gold and secured bonus points for their team…but would it be enough where it mattered – on the final leader board? 

With all the points counted and verified, there could be only one winner…but first, our Wooden Spooners, which went to Table 5 scoring 1700 points – we couldn’t believe it…surely Table 4 were waaaaaay worse! The cheers grew louder as we reached our top three, where Table 6 were clapped up in third place followed by Table 10 in second place, whilst all others could only stand back in awe of the eventual champions, scoring an incredible 5800 points – the sensational Table 13- Lucky for some ! Check out our final leader board below:

The night of Pressure Zone Evening Entertainment had been a massive hit with all in attendance, and a big Thank You and Shout Out must go to Alison and the rest of the organising team for all their efforts in pulling together a brilliant evening for HFMA. We really hope all enjoyed the night as much as we did, and we very much hope to see you all again soon for the rematch!
