UK students gave a feminist twist to an iconic college game Wednesday afternoon with a “Bra-Pong” competition outside the Student Center.

The competition was hosted by the organization Reaching Out to Empower Ambitious Ladies and featured nearly 50 students over the course of the evening.

Music and candy were provided and six prizes were awarded to students.

“People got really competitive and playfully talked trash,” said REAL vice president Julia Vega. “(We) had a lot of fun.”
