LAS VEGAS –Fall season at Sapphire means the fabulous Ping Pong Palooza is back and the Las Vegas nightlife industry is invited to come out to compete for the No.1 spot and bragging rights on Tuesday, Nov.19th. Get your paddles ready for a night of fun, drink specials, delicious appetizers and great competition.
This year’s tournament is the Seventh Annual Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club Ping Pong Palooza, and Sapphire is proud to host this popular event which was originally inspired by the Christopher Walken’ flick Balls of Fury and has grown to be one of the most popular annual events at Sapphire. This event is the largest mixed team ping pong tournament in the world.
The tournament pits teams of nightlife professionals against each other for a trophy that could only be described as the “World Cup of Topless Ping Pong.” Teams must have minimum of four players and at least one female player (You can always choose one of the beautiful Sapphire entertainers to be your female player which is highly recommended!).
Ping Pong Palooza boasts professional referees from the Las Vegas Table Tennis Association, regulation tables and even a special “exhibition table” complete with bubbly and bouncy Sapphire’s dancers doing what they do best! The day of the event registration begins at 6 p.m. with cocktails and complimentary food. Arrive early to register and definitely don’t miss the Entertainer Ping Pong Tournament that takes place on stage during registration. The tournament begins at 7 p.m.
Heineken is the proud sponsor of the event for the second year in a row. Attendees will also be able to purchase drink tickets from the Heineken booth during the event. Two tickets will be available for $8 and good for two Heinekens from the bar. Proceeds go to The Sapphire Foundation for Prostate Cancer. The Sapphire Foundation for Prostate Canceris focused on helping men with prostate cancer that need financial assistance for medical expenditures and other financial needs while being treated for prostate cancer. They also hope to motivate men to get tested for the disease as early detection proves to be crucial in the treatment process. The foundation established in 2003 and has generated over $1.5 million in donations and sponsorships to benefit programs related to the disease, for prostate cancer research and financial assistance for survivors of this disease. Heineken will also be awarding prizes and plaque/trophy to the “Best Mustache” that evening as part of the festivities.
