Compete in Washington Park's Urban Pong Table Tennis Tournament

Do you have what it takes to be crowned Urban Pong champion?

Sixty four of table tennis’ top competitors will suit up for a ping-pong battle at Washington Park in preparation for the Western & Southern Open tennis tournament (Aug. 11-19). Watch one rise through the ranks and into the winner’s circle, where the prize package includes tickets to the W&S Open Finals Match and a mini replica of the tournament’s Rookwood Cup. It’s like being at the real Open, but with smaller courts and paddles.

There will also be crowd giveaways, food, cold brews, live music and mobile tennis courts and ping-pong tables for families and friends to practice sans pressure. Registration to participate in the table tennis tournament is free. Participants must be at least 13 years of age. 

1-6 p.m. Saturday. Free. Washington Park, 1230 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine,
