Grab your paddle, sweatband, and balls — that is, if you have any — because it’s time for the eight-week ping pong tournament. Today is the last day to sign up for a chance to win $500 in party packages from The Alley and HoM Burger Boutique.

For the first seven weeks, teams of two, with one alternate, will go head to head, all leading up to the final week where the top four teams based on points will duke it out. (Teams receive points for each win.)

Both The Alley and HoM will sell two dollar beers that spectators can enjoy while watching the matches unfold. But if you’re anything like us, your game only improves with a couple of brewskis under your belt, so go ahead and pour one back before the game.

If you want to register your team, with all of the players’ names.
