    Examining the Benefits of Playing Games for Adults

    Last updated 4 days ago

    Who says games are just for children? Adults can let loose and have fun by playing some of their favorite games at parties and events! Participating in games offers more than just fun; it offers a number of other benefits that adults are sure to enjoy:

    Relieving Stress

    It is easy to feel stressed out when you have work and home responsibilities to worry about on a daily basis. Letting loose and having some fun is a great way to forget your stress and experience some enjoyment! Playing an awesome game like WhirlyBall will allow you to take your mind off of your worries and focus on having a good time with your friends.

    Getting Physical Activity

    Do you sit in front of a computer or do some other sedentary activity at work all day? Physical activity is essential for staying healthy, but it can be difficult to get this activity when you are stuck at work. Taking some free time to get out of the office and play WhirlyBall will allow you to move your body and enjoy the benefits of physical activity.

    Increasing Your Creativity

    Children are usually very creative. That is because they spend so much time playing! When we play games, we stimulate our minds and give our imaginations a chance to grow. Playing games allows you to be creative in many ways, including problem solving, strategies, and the best ways to have fun.   

    Giving You a Chance to Spend Time With Friends

    As we get older, it becomes more difficult to find time to spend with friends. It is easy to see your friends when you go to the same school, but adult friends may not have schedules that allow them to see one another frequently. Games give you a great opportunity to spend time and have fun with friends.

    Enjoy these benefits and more by planning your next private party here at WhirlyBall! Learn about our party and event specials that are perfect for corporate parties and bachelor parties by checking us out online or calling us at (888) 608-2718.

    Invitation Etiquette for Kid Birthday Parties

    Last updated 12 days ago

    If your child’s birthday is coming up, now is a great time to start making the guest list for her party. It is important to send invitations out early so that guests have plenty of time to respond and make room on their schedules. But just how early should you sent the invitations and what other etiquette tips should you keep in mind?

    Consider sending invitations out three to four weeks before the date of the event. Sit down with your child to start creating a guest list. If your child is young, you may want to stick to family and friends. Slightly older children may want the whole class to come, while older children may only want their closest friends with them. Talk to your child to figure out the best option for her special day.

    Planning the party is easy when you host it here at WhirlyBall! Discover our awesome party and event packages by checking us out line. Call us at (888) 608-2718 for more information about our exciting games and services.

    Tips for Planning a Productive Sales Meeting

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Are you planning a sales meeting? Break way from the typical planning process and try something a little more fun! Hosting your sales meeting at a private party venue is a simple yet effective way to give employees a chance to breath and come up with new ideas outside of the office. Follow this guide for a productive meeting:

    Get Out of the Office

    Your employees spend a good chunk of time in the office. After too much time, this environment can feel dull and drab to your employees. It is difficult for employees to come up with new ideas and stay motivated in a dull environment, which is why it is a good idea to get out of the office for your next meeting!

    Visit a Fun Venue

    Make the most of your time away from the office by finding a fun and exciting venue. Sales meetings do not have to follow any rules, meaning you can choose a venue that will motivate and excite your employees instead of sticking to the same boring choices. WhirlyBall is a fantastic choice for corporate meetings, giving employees a chance to associate work with fun instead of monotony.

    Play Team-Building Games

    As the team leader, it is your responsibility to encourage all employees to work well together. This may not be easy to do in the office environment, but it can be as easy as playing a game here at WhirlyBall! Our event venue offers a variety of exciting games to help guests relax, have fun, and build team spirit. WhirlyBall is an especially good game for encouraging employees to work together to reach a common goal.

    Refuel With Food and Drinks

    Once the game is over, your team can start discussing business matters over delicious food and drinks! Refueling is a great way to finish up a day of fun, and mealtime provides an amazing opportunity to start discussing business goals with your team.

    WhirlyBall has everything you need to host a productive and memorable sales meeting! Contact us at (888) 608-2718 for more information about our locations and corporate party services.
