Football season is underway, and whether you’re a college football fan or pro football fan, it’s fun to get into the game day spirit. When you own a pool, you can have a lot of fun with football-themed parties or even just watching the game. We put together a guide to enjoy both football season and your pool, especially while the weather is still warm in many areas.
Pool-side TV Screens
When you’re enjoying both the pool and football, some outdoor TV screens are a must so you don’t miss any of the key moments of the game. There are a couple options. If you want a large, portable screen, an inflatable movie screen is a good way to go, but instead you may wish to TVs installed so you can enjoy games, shows and movies year-round by your pool. TV screens can be installed on your patio, in an outdoor kitchen or in a pool-side shelter. If the TV is located somewhere that can come into contact with the weather, consider installing a TV built to be outdoors like SunBrite TVs.
Outdoor Kitchens & Bars
A football watch party just isn’t the same without food and drinks. The nice thing about an outdoor kitchen and bar area is that you can cook and entertain right in front of your pool and your TV screens–ensuring you don’t miss time with friends or the game. In your outdoor kitchen, you can have a grill, oven, sink and refrigerator and freezer. So no more having to go back and forth into the house! You can even add a bar area with bar stools. Imagine watching the game, grilling and entertaining all in front of your own beautiful backyard swimming pool.
Speaking of cooking and grilling, you need the right menu for your football watch party. Grilling burgers, chicken or bratwursts is a staple, but when watching football, you have have dip! Need a new dip recipe to try? We recommend the warm, gooey Hot Pizza Dip. It’s like eating a delicious pizza but served in a bowl with pita chips. Check out the recipe here.
Half Time Games
During half time, it’s nice to have games to entertain everyone. Be sure to have some footballs in case guests want to pass a football around. There are also great backyard games like corn hole, horse shoes or even backyard volley ball. Did you know you can have custom corn hole games made with your favorite team?
