This year's Swingball in the City at Broadgate Circle proved to be a success for Mookie, with local schools and professionals from the area taking part in the competition.

Some 70 children took part in the tournament, with each taking home a Tailball set, while each school took away two Pro Swingball sets.

Any office workers braving the arena, and talented enough to beat the Swingball 'pro' also won a Pro Swingball.

Federer and Sharapova look-a-likes arrived on day two to entertain the crowds.

"Swingball in the City was a great success for the brand as it engaged our two key audiences - school-aged children and young professionals," said Guy Orr, director at Mookie. "It was satisfying to see the enjoyment that both groups experienced playing Swingball - and all this comes as Mookie celebrates its ten millionth Swingball sale this summer."
