The sports you played in college are paying off in a big way. No, not football or basketball — think beer pong, foosball, and your favorite tailgating games. With tons of tournaments around the country and a few around the world, tour prize purse amounts for games are more than enough to pay off student loan debt, reaching thousands and millions for some. And the bragging rights are worth even more.
Tour Prize: Out of $100,000 purse, the winner receives $20,000.

Championship: World Championship of Ping Pong, January 24-25, 2015, at the Alexandra Palace in London, England.
Rules: It's like tennis, but on a table and with a ping-pong ball (the Beer Pong ball of choice). To win in a traditional game of ping pong, you have to score 11 points or win by two.
Odds: Well, if you're as coordinated as this guy, you might stand a chance at winning the top prize.
