Join us for Paddlestar Galactica!

Paddlestar Galactica, the bracket-style ping-pong tournament supporting 826DC’s writing programs for local students, is back for year SEVEN! Register ASAP to secure your team’s spot in this unique event.

Wait, how does this work?

Participants raise money during the month of March, either with a personal or corporate team (usually 2-3 people) or individually. There’s no fundraising minimum to meet, but the more money you raise, the more money you’ll have to “buy” cheats during the tournament. This year, the final tournament will be April 7th, 12-3 PM, at SPIN Washington DC.

I’m in! I want to fundraise and play.

Fantastic! RSVP here on Eventbrite and then email us at to get started.

This sounds great, but I just want to watch.

No sweat! Just RSVP here on Eventbrite to let us know that you’re coming. You’ll even be able to help give your favorite team a boost with some low-dollar, day-of cheats.

Could my company support Paddlestar Galactica as a sponsor?

It sure could! Sponsoring Paddlestar Galactica is a dynamite way to give back and to get your brand in front of this event’s awesome (and extensive) audience. Check out this sponsorship packet for more info.
