Join us at the Startup Village for our annual Ping Pong Tournament. Novices, professionals, enthusiasts and fans are welcome to sign up and join the fun on the opening day of the SXSW Interactive Festival. To participate in the tournament, startup companies should select two employees to compete in a single elimination doubles tournament. We will provide the paddles, balls and tables – you prove the enthusiasm.

How the Tournament Will Work

First, participants must sign up online – tournament slots are limited and all available spaces will be filled. Sign up is FREE and open to attendees with a SXSW Interactive, Gold or Platinum badge. When you arrive, check in at the registration table to find out when the first match is scheduled to begin. There you will also receive a card with your game time so you know when your team is scheduled to compete. If you win the match, go back to the registration table, announce your victory and you’ll receive another card with your next game time. Repeat the previous step until you are the tournament champion!

Room 400/402 at the Hilton Downtown Austin (500 East 4th Street)

Friday, March 13 from 12:30–6:00pm

The tournament is free and open to all 2015 SXSW Interactive, Gold, and Platinum registrants on Friday, March 13. To purchase your badge, click here.
