The silliest ping pong tournament in all of Georgia returns for a second triumphant year on May 15 and 16, 2015.

The SNIPPT is a theatrical ping pong tournament – not only will there be ping pong, players are encouraged to bring their alter egos and invent characters with imaginary “back stories.” 

Players can join any one of four teams: the Narwhals, the Razorboars, the Cranes and the Largemouths. Points will be awarded by the judges for both winning play and team spirit. Spectators – welcomed free this year – can also gain points for the team of their choice through imaginative cheering. Some costumes will be available on-site, and everyone is invited to get creative with their team-wear. Team t-shirts are available for purchase.

Please note: this is a ping pong tournament, not a table tennis tournament. We will play by social ping pong rules, not table tennis competition rules. This will be more fun than fierce, albeit competitive for those who really play well.

Players of all skill levels are welcome. Registration is required no later than Wednesday, May 13, 2015

  • Thursday night will be the draw to seed the tournament brackets, and volunteer orientation, starting at 7 pm.
    • Friday night will include an opening ceremony, introduction of the teams and judges, and individual tournament play.
    • Saturday afternoon will be a new component, a youth tournament called the SNAPPERS – Sautee Nacoochee Adolescent Ping Pong Players. Registration: $3 per player.•
    Saturday evening will be the quarter, semi, and finals, and a closing ceremony with trophies awarded to the individual champion and to the teams.
