Step 1: Items Needed and Setup
-Playing surface ~8 feet long
-20-22 red solo cups
-2 or more standard sized ping-pong balls
-A pitcher to fill with water
-Paper towels in case of spills
Modern Beer Pong is played on a flat rectangular surface, 8 feet is preferred but any table will work as long as all players agree on it. Two teams of 1-2 people will stand on their respective sides and form an equilateral triangle with 10 red solo cups as shown. Proceed to fill each cup with approximately 2 ounces of beer or water depending on which game you play. There is a line on red solo cups to indicate 2 ounces, however if you are using other cups, 1/4 to 1/3 filled with beer or water will work. You will need a foot or two of clearance surrounding the table to be able to play comfortably.
