At eWAY, we take a lot of things very seriously. Merchant happiness, developing superior technology, PCI Compliance … the list goes on.

One thing on the list you may not know about is ping pong. But OOOOOOH BOY, do we take it seriously.

So strap yourselves in folks, here’s the photo story of how eWAY claimed victory over its sister company, Ezidebit, at the first annual Inter-Company Ping Pong Championships.

ANOTHER AWARD! Here’s our Sales Director, Joel, winning the Wooden Spoon for the preliminaries. We’re not sure why he’s so happy tbh.

And finally…

When returning to their home town of Brisbane, the Ezidebit team, as punishment for their poor performance, had to wear the eWAY uniform – sending a message of our victory to all.

NOT HAPPY: Let’s just say they copped a stern word from the CEO upon their return.

Until next time, Ezidebit!
