Following the success of the inaugural tournament in 2017, Swingers have once again partnered with Tanqueray No.TEN, to give teams of friends the chance to sip an exceptional gin and tonic before battling it out on the course for the title of London’s crazy golf champions.
This year the tournament heats will be held at both Swingers City and the newly opened Swingers West End, giving competitors a chance to choose which course and therefore which set of jumps, loops and moving obstacles to take on to hopefully clinch a winning score and go through to the semi-finals. Each tournament heat is set up EXACTLY like a professional golf competition. There’ll be competition branding throughout the courses and a caddie on every single hole to count each player’s score. The pressure will be immense.
For the winners of the grand final, the spoils of victory: a trip for four to New York, complete with flights and 2 nights stay at the brand new Hoxton Hotel in Brooklyn.
The Hoxton, Williamsburg – opening in September 2018 – is located in Brooklyn, on the site of the former Rosenwach factory, the maker of the iconic wooden water towers that scatter the New York skyline. The hotel will have 175 rooms, three restaurants and a rooftop with incredible views of Manhattan – the perfect spot to enjoy a Tanqueray No.TEN and tonic and toast a crazy golfing triumph.
If that isn’t enough, the victors of the Swingers Open will also receive the coveted Swingers Open trophy and the right to wear the legendary Swingers green jackets made by celebrated tailor Gresham Blake. They’ll also be immortalized on the Swingers wall of fame. The winners of each weekly heat will receive a luxury Tanqueray No.TEN hamper.
“This might be the biggest and most incredible crazy golfing prize ever,” says Matt Grech-Smith, MD of Swingers and founder of the Institute of Competitive Socialising. “The second Swingers Open is going to be seriously fun and seriously competitive – rarely before has there been so much at stake in a round of crazy golf”.
Interested? Swingers are looking for teams of four to compete in a series of heats throughout July – September 2018. The winning team from each round will progress to the semi-final, and then, if they score highly enough, to the Grand Final for the headline prize and all the associated glory.
An entry fee of £20 per person secures a place in the tournament. Each player will receive a Tanqueray No.TEN and tonic on arrival to aid sporting concentration. Delicious bites from Swinger’s incredible street food vendors will be available to purchase throughout the evening (Patty&Bun, Pizza Pilgrims, Breddos, DF/Mexico, Made of Dough and Hackney Gelato, dependent on which location you’re playing at).
