Fun in the Sun: Create Your Own Outdoor Game Room and Theater

There’s much more to enjoying the outdoors than reading, relaxing and napping (although we’re a fan of all three). The easiest way to banish boredom from your backyard is with high-quality outdoor games that keep everyone entertained while they soak up the sun.


The Outdoor Game Room

Many of the classic games you find in home bars and game rooms are now available in outdoor versions. Designed to resist water and sun damage while still delivering on game performance, our Cornilleau 500M Crossover Indoor/Outdoor Table Tennis features a regulation-size playing field that easily folds away with a single handle that’s accessible from the playing edge.

Always a favorite with young and old, foosball is a great multiplayer game that will have everyone caught up in the excitement. Our Garlando G-500 Indoor/Outdoor Foosball Table features an all-weather laminate playfield, anti-rust steel ball bearings, and durable plastic players that are molded directly to the waterproof rods.

For those who like to keep their options open, the three-in-one Esterno Outdoor Pool Table lets you play both billiards and table tennis – while also functioning as an outdoor dining table. It includes a full collection of accessories for both pool (triangle, cues, ball set) and table tennis (paddles, balls, net), as well as a two-piece dining top that reverses to the table tennis surface.


Pool Games

Of course, the fun doesn’t stop when it’s time for a swim. Enjoy a friendly game of H-O-R-S-E or play team vs. team with our freestanding Pool Basketball Hoop. It’s built to withstand rambunctious kids (and adults), as well as the effects of Mother Nature. Weighted with water or sand, it even features a winged backboard that returns the ball to the shooter so the action never slows down.

Golf lovers can practice lofting the perfect pitch over a water hazard with our Floating Golf Green. Fun for serious golfers and the entire family, this set comes complete with a dozen floating “almost golf” balls, flag and a tee box.

Everyone’s favorite beach sport comes to the water with our Water Volleyball Pool Game. Anchored by portable water- or sand-filled bases, the 20-foot nylon net is supported by powdercoated aluminum poles and includes a regulation-size volleyball that’s perfect for hard-hitting aquatic action.


Movies Under the Stars

One of our favorite summer evening activities is creating a pop-up outdoor movie theater by projecting our favorite films on a bedsheet, portable screen or even the side of the house. But why stop there, when you can add a bit of magic to the setting with an array of colorful, glowing accessories?

You can’t have a movie night without drinks, and our LED Color-changing Beverage Tub will make sure that everyone knows where to grab their favorite refreshment. Integrated LED lights illuminate this durable tub with your choice of 16 different colors that are controlled by the handheld remote.

Sturdy enough to be used as extra seating, a side table for drinks and popcorn, or simply a bit of colorful decor, our LED Cube Seat is always a fun and functional addition to outdoor movie night. The embedded LED lights can be set to white, colored or color-changing mode and shine for up to 8 hours when fully charged.

Perfect for relaxing in the middle of your backyard as well as in the pool, our generously overstuffed Naia Pillow Pool Lounger is filled with polystyrene beads that create a comfy, beanbag-like spot to watch your favorite film. Although if you decided to doze off during the show, we wouldn’t blame you.
