Winners receive their weight in beer

We joined in this year’s World Cup football fever by running a Keepy-Uppy Challenge throughout the duration of the Games – the lucky winners were awarded their weight in beer.


The challenge was run throughout the World Cup games, and the winners were announced on 16th July. Local businesses on the Greenham Business Park received a personal printed invitation to enter the challenge at Verbatim’s offices – entry sessions were held every Monday and Friday for anyone wanting to drop in and have their best keepy-uppy effort recorded by the Verbatim team. Winner Aman (above left) – a 23 year old employee of Norma UK Ltd, was thrilled to win the challenge after completing an amazing 75 non-stop keepy-ups at Verbatim’s offices just days before the competition closed. He was greeted at Windsor & Eton Brewery on Friday 25th July where he was given 14 cases of beer. Aman said…
“I was ecstatic to find out I was the winner of the keepy-uppy challenge. I took my friends from work along with me and we all had a go. Competition between me and my work friends was tough but I managed to leave with the highest. A few hours later I received a call that I had won! I was over the moon! I had only trained a day before attempting the challenge so was pleased with the result. Upon receiving the beer I was greeted very pleasantly by the Windsor and Eton Brewery where I was given a full tour of the factory and got to taste a variety of their beers! I even got up on the scales and did some keepy-uppy’s. In the end I received 14 crates, was extremely chuffed with my winnings!  I will most definitely be attempting this challenge again next year!”
Challengers could also post a video of their best keepy-uppy attempt on Verbatim’s Facebook page. Winners for this category were also awarded their weight in beer. Winners Richard and Carlos seen below receiving their 8 cases of beer.

More fun was had with Verbatim’s ‘Keep your eye on the ball’ challenge. Footballs were carefully (and sneakily) hidden within the 4 page quarterly printed newsletter that Verbatim sends to clients, and with some balls only being 3 mm in diameters this was not an easy ‘spot’. The winners – who spotted all 8 balls – were Hannah and Jane from Guardian Preservation Services who each received a ‘His and Hers World Cup Goodie Pack’ including a bottle of bubbly and luxury chocolates for her,and cider and crisps for him.
