PongRock begins in Austin, Texas next week (full article to come on Monday) and Uberpong are going to be sponsoring the event (and playing in it!). The precursor to the season opener was a knockout tournament at Lavaca Street bar. Founder of Uberpong David Lowe used his trusty ‘Smoke’ paddle but got knocked out in the first round by Khaled Haggag in close 3 sets. Photobomber extraordinaire John Lack was looking good until Cesar Serna stole his thunder and won the tourney and a coveted Uberpong ‘Bear’ paddle. Here’s David presenting the prize to Cesar who looks like a real threat this season.
