    When Are Minors Allowed at WhirlyBall?

    Last updated 3 years ago

    WhirlyBall is an exciting game for children, teens, and adults! This game combines all of the fun of basketball, lacrosse, and bumper cars, providing a totally unique gaming experience that cannot be compared. Players are always welcome, but not everyone is allowed to be a player at all times.

    There are specific rules regarding minors at WhirlyBall in Chicago. After 5:00 pm, minors are not allowed into the facility for unscheduled visits. All guests must be able to provide identification proving they are 21 or older when the clocks strike 5:00. Minors will be allowed it if they have scheduled playtime, but they can only access the courts and not the rest of the facility. This ensures safety for all of our guests of all age groups.

    If you have questions about when you can schedule a game or walk in for a game, contact the WhirlyBall team today! Give us a call at (773) 486-7777 to get answers to any other questions you have about our party and event venue. 

    Examining the Benefits of Playing Games for Adults

    Last updated 3 years 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 (773) 486-7777.

    Invitation Etiquette for Kid Birthday Parties

    Last updated 3 years 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 (773) 486-7777 for more information about our exciting games and services.
