Staff from four Tewkesbury businesses are starring in a new online game being launched by thebestof. 

‘thebestof Tewkesbury Games’ is an online game that challenges the people of Tewkesbury to compete against one another in four fun events - Hammer Throw, Bus Pull, VIP Q Jump and Trolley Ball!

The idea is to find out who is the best player in Tewkesbury with the overall highest scoring player winning a fantastic pool of prizes.

Staff from four local businesses, Rage Hair, Sail & Paddle, Red Sixty Solutions and Brushed Strokes; feature in the games represented by their own unique avatars.

Tom Lawrence from Sail & Paddle explains:

“People from Tewkesbury and all over the UK now have the opportunity to battle against our staff in ‘thebestof Tewkesbury Games’ to see if they are good enough to beat our top scores.  It’s all a lot of fun and I’m sure there will be some serious competition hotting up over the coming weeks between staff, customers and local people.  As an added bonus we even offer instant rewards if you challenge any of our staff and win!”

The prize pool has been generously provided by the four businesses involved, the player that gets the highest score over a 2 month period across all four events will be crowned thebestof Tewkesbury Games King or Queen and walk away with a  pool of amazing prizes comprising:

  1. A ghd precious limited edition gift set worth £155 from Rage Hair,
  2. 1 Week’s Water Park Activity at Sail & Paddle, worth £175
  3. an 8gb ipod Touch from Red Sixty Solutions worth £150
  4. A £175 Home Decorating Kit from Brushed Strokes.

Thebestof Tewkesbury champions and showcases the very best local businesses tapping into thousands of opinions of local people, writing real reviews and sharing their knowledge and opinions about great local businesses. Every business that is featured on thebestof Tewkesbury website has been recommended by local people - so users can be confident that they truly are one of the best at what they do.

Debbie Taylor who runs thebestof Tewkesbury says; “This is a unique opportunity for great local businesses to promote themselves to people in Tewkesbury in a very different way. Usually online games like this are associated with brand building for multinational corporations and big businesses but now we can offer the chance for local businesses to feature and be seen by people in a different way.

Added to this we have in-game Facebook Connect and Twitter functions so players can invite and challenge friends and colleagues via social media, this should really increase the exposure for the businesses involved.”

‘thebestof Tewkesbury Games’can be found online now at and are free to play.
