Beer pong and football tailgates and parties have become synonymous over the years. And it’s now football season, a perfect time to get a new beer pong table.
Beer pong tables have come a long way since the game’s inception decades ago. Now with sturdy frame designs and sleek graphics, many tables now come with useful features like pre-cut cup holders and LED lighting. The holes help prevent the cup from falling over and spilling onto the table, while the lights make it easy to play at night or just to add a little flair to the game. And they don’t need to be used for just beer pong. At 8 feet long and 2 feet wide (regulation size), you can use them for any party — outdoors or indoors — as they offer plenty of space for food and drink.
So keep reading below to see some of the top-rated and popular beer pong tables available on the market today.
