What is Beer pong

Beer Pong is a table tennis game without a ping pong bat. It is such a fun game. Players need to throw a ping pong ball into the opponent’s cup, and the opponent has to drink the glass of beer. Whether you win or lose, there is a lot of laughter to be shared whenever there is a hit or miss. Beer Pong is also popular because it dates back several generations and is now enjoyed at bars, tailgate parties, and even at home.

Why it’s so popular?

The game was originally believed to have evolved from the original beer pong played with paddles which is generally regarded to have had its origins within the fraternities of Dartmouth College in the U.S. in the 1950s and 1960s, where it has since become part of the social culture of the campus. The original version resembled an actual ping-pong game with a net and one or more cups of beer on each side of the table. Eventually, a version without paddles was invented and the names Beer Pong and Beirut were adopted in some areas.

The rules of the beer pong game

The rules of the game are similar. Generally speaking, 10 or 12 even-numbered cups are needed, and the cups are arranged in a triangular array of bowling pins at both ends of a long table which is similar to table tennis. How to play traditional Beer pong?There are 6 steps in total.


1:The people participating in the game are divided into two teams, offensive and defensive, with at least two people in each team.
2:Fill up the plastic cups with beer or water.
3:Fill a bucket with clean water to rinse balls before throwing.
4:Determine who goes first and take turns throwing the balls into cups.
5:Drink according to where the ball lands.
The two sides take turns throwing table tennis balls, and the throwing side is the attacking side, and vice versa is the defending side. There is no limit to the way of throwing, you can throw it directly into the cup, or you can use the angle to bounce the ball into the cup.
