    Last updated 3 years ago

    If you are in charge of planning this year’s family reunion, try to put together something that is out of the ordinary. Instead of the typical barbeque or pool party, plan a private event at WhirlyBall to ensure that your whole family has a reunion that they will never forget:

    A Game Anyone Can Play

    WhirlyBall is the perfect activity for your entire family. Even your grandmother can participate in this fun and unique game that combines lacrosse, hockey, basketball, and bumper cars. Since it does not require an extreme amount of athletic ability, it will not make anyone in your family feel isolated from the group. Plan a friendly family-on-family competition that keeps your reunion interesting.

    Other Activities to Keep You Entertained

    If you or some of your family members get tired of playing, we have plenty of other activities to keep you occupied. Some of our locations offer LASERTRON laser tag. There is a rock-climbing wall at our Vernon Hills location for you to test your athletic abilities. All of our locations have video games, foosball, and air hockey tables.

    A lot of modern brides do not want the traditional bridal shower. If you are planning a shower for a nontraditional bride, you might want to plan a couple’s shower that includes guys and girls.

    Find an activity that both the bride and groom like. Make sure anyone you invite is an invited wedding guest, but do not feel like you have to invite the entire guest list. Check out this video for more great tips.

    Whether you are planning a bachelor party or a couple’s shower, turn to WhirlyBall for an amazing venue that offers plenty of fun for everyone. With locations in Chicago, Lombard, and Vernon Hills, we make it easy to plan a spectacular event. Call (773) 486-7777 to get started.
