The stakes are high yet again for next week’s ping pong tournaments at the GeekWire Bash: fame, glory and the revered Golden Paddle trophy await the winners.

But those aren’t the only prizes in store for the 2019 ping pong champions on March 7.

To make this year’s tournament even more exciting, the expert and intermediate bracket winners will receive a pair of Alaska Airlines round-trip vouchers, while the doubles ping pong champs will get one ticket to any destination in the Alaska Airlines network.

We have just a few slots available in each of the ping pong tournaments, so if you have not yet registered, go here to purchase your tickets before we release the official brackets next week.

With a strong serve, quick reactions and a little luck, you could be vacationing in New York, Cancun, San Diego, or anywhere in between. Now is your chance to earn it on the table tennis court! The competition will be fierce for these great prizes, courtesy of GeekWire Bash partner Alaska Airlines.

Registration is open for the ping pong tournaments, as well as general admission tickets. So even if you don’t have a wicked ping pong serve, join us for this fun geek festival that includes VR, video games, robotics, a Junior Geek Zone, sumo wrestling and a cross-venue zipline! General admission tickets available here.
