Sign up now for the SXSW Ping Pong Tournament!

If you belong to the startup economy, then you have probably spent your fair share of hours working out your various frustrations via the relaxing chaos of a ping pong table. Put these hard-earned skills to good use at SXSW on Friday, March 7 at the third annual ping pong tournament.

The action runs from 12:00pm - 6:00pm at the Hilton Austin Downtown, Room 400/402. No, you definitely don’t have to be a professional to compete, but this single-elimination, doubles-tournament is only open to SXSW Interactive, Gold or Platinum registrants. Once you have your badge, there is no fee to participate. If you think you've got game just sign-up online and prepare to defeat your opponents! The tournament will feature up to 70 teams that will enter, but only one will be named the 2014 SXSW Ping Pong Champion! We'll provide the paddles, balls, and tables -- you bring your best ping pong skills.
