What are the best yard games?

If you’re ready to start building your yard games collection but not sure where to start, here are some of the best yard games that you can play all summer long:


Is there any yard game that’s more classic than Cornhole? Fun for any age and level of athletic ability, Cornhole requires minimal set up and is a game you can enjoy for hours. Simply arrange two boards opposite each other and toss Cornhole bags into the opening of the opposite game board to score more points than your opponent. It’s easy to play and can provide hours of fun with your friends and family.

Ladder ball

Ladder ball is another fun outdoor game, perfect to set up in your yard or at your local neighborhood park. Players toss bolas, or two golf balls connected by a string, at ladders with ascending rungs. If you successfully place your bola on a ladder rung, you will score points. The rungs have different point values, and the goal is to reach exactly 21 points to win the game.

Bocce ball

Bocce ball is a fun, simple game played with a set of 8 balls and one smaller ball. The goal of the game is to place more balls near the target ball than your opponent. The game begins by tossing the small target ball. Then, each opponent takes turns tossing balls underhand to land them as close to the target ball as possible. Points are scored by counting the number of balls you’ve placed closer to the target than your opponent. All you’ll need to start is a Bocce ball set (9 balls total), making it ideal for easy transport.


If you’re a badminton fan, grab a Badminton set and easily assemble a Badminton court in your backyard. All you need is the net, some racquets, and a few shuttlecocks (balls). Badminton is a simple sport, similar to tennis, and is highly versatile. You can play doubles or singles, but either way, you’re sure to have hours of backyard fun.

Spikeball Pro

For a fast-paced, exciting backyard game, try Spikeball Pro. Spikeball is a new sport that has emerged in recent years and has millions of dedicated fans. The game is played with two opposing teams gathered around a flat, circular net, on which players ricochet the ball. The goal is for each team to return the ball to the net within three touches. It’s a fun and exciting sport, perfect for almost any age. So grab a Spikeball Pro set and get playing!

Final thoughts

Whether you opt for a relaxing game of Cornhole or an exciting match of Spikeball, one thing is for certain–with a collection of fun yard games, you’ll never get bored this summer!

And while you’re browsing for your new games, don’t forget to think about product protection. While you probably plan to take good care of your purchases, it’s important to be prepared in the case of accidental damage and normal wear and tear. It’s easy for yard games to become damaged or worn down with time and use, and the last thing you need is to have to replace your purchase prematurely. An extended warranty plan can give you peace of mind that your purchase will last for years of summer fun.
