Knockaround x Killerspin Fort Knocks

killerspin-fortknocks-blog

We are excited to have collaborated with the best table tennis company in the game, Killerspin. These Killerspin Fort Knocks feature matte black frames, silver hardware, and arms with a black to red fade.

Collaborating with Killerspin was a natural fit. For years Knockaround HQ has had two Killerspin tables, one for competitive play, and one for conferences and meetings. We engage in daily lunchtime tournaments to breakup the work day and even have a table tennis trophy floating around the office. So, when we were asked to be a part of Killerspin’s Unplug N Play initiative, we were immediately on board.

Unplug N Play encourages companies to embrace a table tennis office culture. It urges employees to step away from the computer screen for a friendly game of table tennis in the middle of the day, an idea we can all get behind.

Use the promo code “KnockaroundxKillerspin” on your next Killerspin.com order and you will receive a FREE pair of these Knockaround x Killerspin Fort Knocks! Hurry, only 100 pairs available.

“Want to stand out this summer? Hide your eyes behind atomic-bright mirrored lenses. You’ve got options, from Saint Laurent to our new favorite brand, Cali-based Knockaround. Its retro frames look great on every face, especially since you can customize the colors and the lens tint. Best part: Knockarounds cost $45 or less. Buy five and don’t worry if (or when) you lose a pair.” – Jim Moore, Creative Director
