Brush up on those paddle skills, because the Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival just got a little more odd.

Badge holders for the third annual fest, April 23-26 in Austin, are invited to sign up for a chance to take on the event’s comics in the Pong Rock Smack Down, the festival’s first ping pong tournament. The competition takes place from 2-5 p.m. on April 26 at Stateside at the Paramount, 719 Congress Ave.

Spaces are limited, but spectators as well as participants can enjoy free food and beverages from sponsors Amy’s Ice Cream, Phil’s Ice House, Twisted X Brewing Company and Crystal Creek Moonshine.

To get a spot in the tournament’s lottery (participants’ names will be drawn at the start of the event) head to the Moontower website. No badge? You can purchase one of those at the website, too.
