Perfect Party Games
No holiday party would be complete without party games! If you’re throwing the party at a venue that has access to a tennis court, and the weather allows it, then why not arrange a round robin style tournament to encourage some competition between your guests, and arrange prizes for the winners. If you don’t have a tennis court Swingball is a good alternative that everyone can join in with or play a game of driveway tennis with a shorter net and softer ball. Additionally, a tennis ball piñata is an extremely fun game that everyone can enjoy, no matter their age or tennis ability.
This is the season of giving. Give your guests something they will remember with these simple tennis-themed party favors. Simply cut a circle in the top of a tennis ball and fill it with candy or other treats.
If you’re looking to go the extra mile they why not make individual gifts for all of your members/guests to guarantee they’ll remember your party. These personalized decorations are simple to create and look great and the best part is they can be reused each year to decorate your guests home.
The holiday season is the perfect time of year to get together and celebrate with friends and family. These simple yet effective ideas will make sure your holiday party is an instant success and the talk of the tennis club.
