The World Series of Beer Pong will take place on Wednesday, July 6, 2016 through Sunday, July 10, 2016.

“We’re honored to not only celebrate the 11th year of The World Series of Beer Pong in Las Vegas, but to bring it to a new home at the renowned Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino,” said Billy Gaines, Founder & CEO of BPONG.COM and The World Series of Beer Pong. “It’s a competition unlike any other in the world. Thousands of competitors from different walks of life, ranging from doctors to teachers to college students, will come together for four days of thrilling competition.”

Tournament play at the 11th 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.
