Seattle Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka, who is widely considered the best ping pong player in the team’s locker room, will host a tournament on Monday where the benefit will go beyond bragging rights. The second-annual event serves as a fundraiser for Mary’s Place and the No Child Sleeps Outside campaign.

The tournament, to raise funds for the organization which advocates for homeless women, children and families, will take place at the CenturyLink Field West Club Lounge from 6 to 9 p.m. on Monday. Celebrities and fellow Seahawks are expected to take part in the single-elimination competition.

“It’s going to be really cool,” Hauschka told “We’re going to get a bunch of my teammates there. Guys love ping pong in the locker room, so I think they’ll have fun coming out there. We’re going to have a great tournament there with some really competitive players.”

Here’s the details on tickets:

  • General Admission: $25.
  • Mary’s Place Champion: $75 (Includes 2 drink tickets & 2 Raffle Tickets) — only 50 of these tickets available.
  • VIP Access: $500 (Mingle in the VIP area – no tournament play) — only 10 of these tickets available.
  • 12 VIP Tournament Players: $1,200.

The day before the ping pong action heats up, the Seahawks play at home against the Carolina Panthers on “Sunday Night Football.”
