I know tennis and beer pong aren’t the same, but if you’re a 23-time Grand Slam winner, some skills probably transfer to the pong table. So I would not have wanted to be the person facing off against Serena Williams at the royal wedding after-party, where the star reportedly wiped the floor with her beer-pong competition.
The Sun reports Williams totally dominated, as one might expect, with a fellow party guest telling the U.K. paper that the star “played beer pong like it was tennis.” Presumably, grown men left the pong table in tears. (There’s also a fun aside where The Sun explains beer pong for its readership, noting the party’s festivities included “the boozy American university drinking game beer pong, where players throw table tennis balls into cups of beers which their opponents then have to consume.” Indeed, good chap!)
Perhaps the secret to Williams’ pong success was on her feet: She was wearing sneakers under her floor-length evening gown. While other guests had to balance on stilettos while preparing for a beer-pong shot, Williams came dressed for success. My lone remaining question: What type of beer does a royal wedding after-party use for pong?
