The World Series of Beer Pong celebrates 12th year in Las Vegas June 2-4

Annual tournament to be held Friday, June 2 to Sunday, June 4 at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino

The World Series of Beer Pong is back for its 12th year in Sin City! The largest and longest-running organized beer pong tournament in the world, The WSOBP XII will feature thousands of beer pong enthusiasts from across the globe, competing for the chance to win at least $35,000 in prize money and the ultimate bragging rights of “World Beer Pong Champion.” The annual tournament will take place at the renowned Westgate Las Vegas Resort & CasinoFriday, June 2, 2017 through Sunday, June 4.

Tournament play at The WSOBP XII 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.

The WSOBP XII contestants are competing for a grand prize of at least $35,000, which could grow to more than $100,000, depending on the number of teams competing. Cash prizes will also be awarded to the top team in several categories, including “Top Non-North American Team,” “Top Rookie Team,” “Top Co-Ed Team” and “Top Female Team.” In addition, cash prizes will be awarded to a randomly-selected game in each round and there will be costume prizes throughout the tournament.
