Crossnet Four Square Volleyball Net and Game Set
Traditional beach volleyball is fine, but this four square volleyball net is next level. It combines volleyball with the game of four square: instead of playing with just two teams, you can get a whole party involved in the four-way game. Whoever gets to 11 points first wins. The net’s adjustable size means even your tiniest (or tallest) guest can get involved in the fun, and it’s easy to set up and take down, so it doesn’t need to camp out in your yard all summer — unless of course, you want it to.

Kan Jam USA Game Set
Kan Jam is a fun game for beach days, tailgates, and a lazy Sunday afternoon. Toss the disk into the opposite team’s can to score a point, and whoever gets to 21 first wins. Parents love that it’s fun for the whole family and even seems to get their kids outside more. We love that this set is particularly cool with a red, white, and blue design so it could double as decor for a 4th of July BBQ.

Spikeball Family Set
If you’re really looking to rev up the competition, try Spikeball, as seen on Shark Tank. Teams take turns “spiking” the ball onto the ground net to their opponents, and whoever misses the ball forfeits a point to the other team. This extra-large set means more people can join in on the fun, and the larger and smaller ball options allow you to customize the game based on the age group.

SmileMart Disc Golf Goal Target Practice
Brush up on your disc golf game with this target practice tool. It features a target flag at the top and two baskets for you to aim at. It’s weather- and rust-resistant so you can keep it out in your yard to practice as you please, but if you do need to move it indoors, it easily collapses and stores away. Customers note that it’s great for beginners, so it’s a simple way to teach your kids the rules of the game, too.
