Featured event from the Game Lab


Ping Pong Tournament

This past September, Area 01 hosted a ping pong tournament for students. It was a fun way to meet new people. Few things bring people together faster than a healthy sense of competition, and a game like this one built camaraderie amongst teams and crowds. Not to mention, the winning pair each got a Dabble Lab made trophy!

The event was a great success. There was a lot of energy from the crowd as students who were watching the games were waiting for their turn to compete. I anticipate there will be more ping pong tournaments in the future!
