Now that the leaves are starting to change and the weather can get somewhat inclement, the added wind gusts can play havoc on your beer pong game. The same folks that thought up MegaPongo have introduced the Windball, designed specifically for beer pong played outdoors.
The WindBall is a 40mm soft PVC ball that is nearly four times heavier than a standard ping-pong ball. The WindBall also features little to no bounce that translates into less chasing after bouncing balls from errant and missed shots.
Keep in mind, the WindBall is not designed for all types of beer pong games. Because the ball is nearly four times heavier than a regular ping pong ball, you should not use the WindBall on a flat regulation beer pong table. Because the WindBall is so much heavier compared to a regular ping pong ball, if used on a standard beer pong table it would wipe out the cups. The WindBall should only be used in conjunction with beer pong games where the cups are recessed like with MegaPongo, Point Pong and Pong Islands.
If you play beer pong while tailgating and are tired of the wind ruining your game, you would be a prime candidate to try out the WindBall. The Windball costs $12 for a 6-pack. Since Windballs are made by the same folks who make MegaPongo, they are sold as an add-on to the MegaPongo game set.
