Sign up now for the SXSW Ping Pong Tournament!

Many startup companies feature a break room with a ping pong table where employees can relax after a hard day (or hard night) of plotting world take-over. So what better way to break the ice at SXSW Interactive 2014 than playing table tennis at Startup Village?

Join us for the third annual ping pong tournament which occurs on Friday, March 7 from 12:00pm - 6:00pm at the Hilton Austin Downtown, Room 400/402. You 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, tables and organization -- you just bring your best ping pong skills.
