In its 4th season, the Puma Table Tennis Tournament has become synonymous with overly competitive industry people at each other’s throats with both company pride and industry bragging rights on the line. For the 2008 PT3 edition, the tournament is leaving its original Chinatown roots and taking over The powerHouse Arena in Brooklyn. The formidable cast of participants include Formavision, NY Times, Nom De Guerre, Google, Comedy Central, joao, Flavorpill, rude, Staple Design, Shop Architects, Theme Magazine and Psyop. Winners this year will take home a Puma Glow in the Dark Bike and afforded the opportunity to design a Mongolian BBQ Puma Basket. It’s unfortunate HYPEBEAST will not be in attendance as we know Chinese people are only good at three things, kung-fu, mathematics and ping-pong. The mayhem takes place this Friday, check the below for details.

You’re most likely never going to need the materials for what purpose they serve, but do you need that peace of mind?
We’ve had a hella lot of features regarding PAM’s 2008 “Space Face” collection and with good reason.
