Thousands of beer pong enthusiasts from across the globe will flock to the 13th Annual World Series of Beer Pong tournament in Las Vegas this summer. Held for the third time at the renowned Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, The World Series of Beer Pong will take place Thursday, July 5, 2018 through Sunday, July 8, 2018.
Tournament play at the 13th Annual World Series of Beer Pong follows the official WSOBP rules, but in short, the game is one of skillful hand-eye coordination. During play, two-person teams stand at opposite ends of an eight-foot-long table, where ten 16-ounce cups, filled with water, are placed in bowling pin formation. Each team takes turns tossing beer pong balls (similar to table tennis balls) at their opponent’s cup formation. If the ball goes in a cup, that cup is removed from the game. The first team to eliminate all of its opponent’s cups wins.
