Ever had that one friend who gets a bit too serious during beer pong? 

 

The Pong World Championship is basically what happens when they all get together to organise an international tournament, with over US $40,000 worth of prizes up for grabs! 

 

With representative teams from Hong Kong, the US, UK, South Korea, Vietnam and many others congregating in Central Harbourfront and a Reality E-Sports Festival happening alongside the main event, this is not one to be missed and certainly one of the more novel events we've come across in a long time!

Date: March 24 (Sun)

Time: 9.00pm-5.00pm
