Elbow Rule – Rules of Beer Pong #14
14. Elbow Rule
The unspoken rule at most house parties, the elbow rule states that your elbow may not cross the edge of the table while shooting. This rule is especially important if you are using a short table. If a player’s elbow crosses the edge of the table then the shot does not count. This tends to be a heavily disputed rule, because it is hard to tell if the elbow crosses from your perspective at the the other side of the table. Take a good step back from the table and you will never have to worry about this rule. The professional beer pong circuit does not play by the elbow rule as they use official 8ft. long tables.
