Aim Small - Miss Small


When playing beirut (beer pong), throwing accuracy and consistency are paramount to achieving victory. The most basic technique used to develop and maintain throwing accuracy, is to aim at the smallest possible target. In theory aiming for the smallest target, will minimize a player's margin of inaccuracy, and lead to more target and collateral cups hit.  

The Big Picture


Big Target Many beginner beirut (beer pong) players will focus on all of the cups in a setup when shooting. Focus is probably a misnomer, because these players are not really focusing, they are simply lobbing the ball across the table while hoping it will go in a cup. This poor technique will prohibit a player from developing a consistent shot. These players may sometimes feel that their accuracy is improving, but chances are, they are simply on a lucky streak.

The Small Screen


Small Target

Instead of focusing on all of the cups in a setup, a player should focus on a single target cup. At first, a player may be discouraged with the results. Now that they are aiming for a target cup, they become more aware when they miss. However, with practice the player will begin hitting more target cups. In addition, due to the smaller margin of inaccuracy, players will begin hitting adjacent collateral cups more frequently.

The biggest benefits of this technique will pay off late in games when few cups remain, or cups are separated. Players will find that lone wolf cups are just as easy to hit as cups in the middle of a setup. The last cup will seem no different from the first cup.
