How to Build Beer Pong Tables


Beer pong is a game commonly played in college areas. The table is the largest and most important part of the game. There are no official rules for beer pong and the ones that are used vary greatly from coast to coast, state to state and college to college. Check the rules that others in your area follow before beginning construction of your table.

Things You'll Need

  • Table
  • Plywood
  • 3 2-by-4 inch boards
  • Paint
  • Waterproof sealer
  • Find a table to use as a base. This can either be a table that you already use, such as a kitchen table, or you can purchase a cheap folding table for just this purpose.

  • Cut the plywood to the correct measurements for the beer pong table. Technically, there are no official rules for the game of beer pong so the measurements of the table can vary greatly from area to area. The typical size is 8 by 4 feet.

  • Adjust the height of the table. Cut at least three pieces of 2-by-4 or 4-by-4 to the same width of your table. Lay the boards equally across the table. You can stack and nail several pieces of 2-by-4 in order to get the correct height that is required by the rules of your area. Again, the rules vary greatly so the height could be anywhere from 27.5 to 45 inches.

  • Draw boundary lines on the plywood top. There are typically three lines that are required by most rules: The mid line that divides the table in half, and the foul lines that are a foot from the edge of each side of the table.

  • Decorate the plywood. You can use paint, bottle caps or anything else you want to decorate the surface of your table.

  • Waterproof the plywood. It is best to coat the surface of the table in a waterproof sealer in order to protect the wood from water damage. This will protect the wood and make sure that your table lasts longer.

  • Set up the table you're using as a base, place the set of three 2-by-4 boards evenly across the table and place the plywood on top. This sets up the beer pong table for playing.
