Regulation beer pong tables are eight feet long, two feet wide and 27 1/2 inches off the ground. Those are the dimensions of beer pong tables used in the World Series of Beer Pong so those are the dimensions that have been adopted and accepted as regulation. Based on those dimensions, there are plenty of beer pong table manufacturers that make beer pong tables in those dimensions and some even fold up and are easily portable to take to a tailgate party, frat party, backyard BBQ or anywhere else you want to play beer pong.

Object of the game – A relay race in which one team must finish all the beer in their cups before the other team finished theirs.
How to Play – Flip Cup involves drinking, hand-eye coordination, competitiveness and team play. Normally played with minimum teams of four but you can have larger teams if you place multiple beer pong tables end-to-end. Place plastic party cups with a pre-agreed upon volume of beer in each cup along the along side of the table in front of each competitor. To start the game, pick an end of the table to start. Those players start the game by picking up their cup, toasting the other player’s cup, touching their cup to the table again (down-up-down) and drinking all the contents in the cup. Once finished, the player places the cup on the side edge of the table on it’s base. Using their fingers, the players then must flip the cup over so that it lands with the open end face down on the table. Once the cup has been properly flipped, that signals that the next team member can start to drink their cup and proceed to flip it over once finished. The game continues until one team has consumed all the beer in their cups and successfully flipped all of their cups onto their open sides.
