Carrom Friday

Span Enterprises 8/15/2013
Last month we blogged about Tea Time - one of our daily Span Enterprises office traditions.  Another popular tradition at Span is Carrom Friday.  We don't do Casual Friday (Because everyday is pretty much casual for us) but we do like to play Carrom!  Each Friday, we setup the Carrom Board after Tea Time and a fierce competition ensues. 

Carrom is a table game with Eastern origins and is not easy to describe.  A simple description would be to say that it is like a combination of billiards and table shuffleboard.  Each game consists of 20 Carrom pieces on a board, and each player attempts to sink their pieces into the corner pockets using a "Striker" that is flicked with one's finger.   There are many more rules to the game, but Ain't Nobody Got Time For That.  

In a typical Carrom tournament in the office, emotions range from lighthearted and fun to intensely competitive, but the one commonality that unites us all is that none of us are very talented Carrom players although we have been playing it for years. If you would like to join our Carrom Tournaments each week, you can apply to Join Our Team! We are always looking for talented individuals who can help us grow.
