The temperature may have been close to zero, but Alexander Palace in North London was really hotting up when it hosted the annual Bet Victor World Championship of Ping Pong on 26th and 27th January and PongCrazy were there to get the ping pong party started with some of our unique tables.
As well as our old favourites, like our giant fried egg (Sunny Side Up) and our golf themed table (Up and Down), we also brought along some new and exciting tables to the Palm Court.

With this the thoughts and opportunities spiralled with the different choices we had. Starting from the geometry of the Great Pyramid of Giza (51.5° side angle) and a maximum footprint size, it was time to play with some ideas to see the scale this beast would be.
The World Adventure Golf Masters was contested for the seventh time in its history last month and this year the venue was Zaton Holiday Resort, Croatia. Proudly supported by UrbanCrazy, Great Britain was represented by two teams in the two-day competition with the squad comprised of a blend of experienced players and international debutants who were up against representatives from many countries including: Germany, USA, Japan, New Zealand, Russia and Ghana.
On their return I caught up with three key GBR players – Sean Homer, Andy Exall and Will Donnelly – to ask them about their experience. Here’s what they had to say…
So in honour of Beef’s imminent appearance in The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale, Clare and her production team decided to organise a putting challenge between herself and all the guests and turned to us at UrbanCrazy to set up an extra-long hole in the studio, with some rather unusual obstacles. So who won the putt-off?
What incredible weather we’re having already and it’s not even July yet! The mercury keeps tipping over 30°C and we’re having some of the hottest June days since 1976! Not so great if you’re stuck indoors – but perfect if you’re outdoors – and even more perfect if you fancy a spot of mini golf. Read more
