It’s crazy to think how far we’ve come since the COVID-19 lockdown.but If there’s one thing I’ve learned since then (trust me, I’ve learned a lot), it’s to always make the most of the time I spend with the people I love.

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend time with your loved ones, Keep reading for our list of the best outdoor games for adults to inspire your weekend planning ideas.
Bocce ball is one of the easiest yet most competitive games. I grew up playing bocce tournaments in my grandparents’ backyard, so those matches are still some of my fondest memories. (Although I think we were more focused on the color of the ball than the game itself).
The game is played with 8 big balls and a pallina (small balls). The goal is to land the ball as close to the pallina as possible. It takes very little skill or effort, but it will definitely get your blood boiling when you see the ball land right next to the pallina and roll 10 feet away. This set also glows in the dark, so the fun never stops when the sun goes down.
Paddleball is one of my favorite games, but also my least favorite. (But that’s what makes it even funnier!) I vividly remember my parents playing intense paddleball games on the beach when I was a kid, and they made it look so easy. I always got frustrated that I couldn’t hit the ball more than 5 times in a row. That’s why I stand by the fact that this is his one of the best outdoor games for adults.
I still don’t know if my family plays by the real rules, but I love counting how many times I can hit the ball back and forth without it falling to the ground. This set by The Beach People is great and will make any player feel like a pro.
Or am I the only one hearing or seeing pickleball everywhere these days? It is similar to tennis, but is played on a badminton-sized court with special paddles and wiffle-like balls. I have noticed that more and more parks are building pickleball courts, and I have even visited a few of my friends who have his pickleball courts in their backyards.
I found this 4 trout while looking up the 4 trout rule for my family. I decided on a volleyball game set and have been wanting to get one ever since. A love child of classic squares and volleyball, it seems to have “I’m Addicted” written all over it.
The rules are the same as for 4 squares, but spikes it instead of bouncing it onto other people’s squares. This game will definitely be the main event at your next barbecue. But until I get my own net and set, I’m still going to play traditional Foursquare. you should too
Cornhole is one of those classic outdoor games that never gets old. It’s also a very energy-saving game that you can play while having a drink and a conversation.
Each player must do their best to throw the bean bag into the hole in the board. Scoring is simple. If the bag lands anywhere on the board, he scores 1, if the bag hangs off the rim he scores 2, and if the bag enters the board he scores 3. You can always find a cornhole board with more character, but I recommend buying a simple wood set. Be creative. I’ve seen beautiful boards with family names hand-painted, and I’ve seen some at events where everyone used colorful paint pens to sign, date, and add handprints to the board. I have participated.
You may be wondering if Jenga is really an outdoor game, but if you make it huge, it becomes unsafe for your kitchen table. (Ask Executive Producer Michelle about the water glass fiasco.) Build and he removes one by one so as not to crumble. Michelle’s advice? “Avoid windy areas and keep drinks out of the collision radius.” This set from SunnyLife is gorgeous and makes a great gift.

Sit in your backyard with Flatland Calvary playing in the background, a glass of rosé and enjoy some friendly competition.
No list of outdoor games for adults is complete without horseshoes. When I was little, his father built a homemade horseshoe hole in his backyard. It has been overgrown and overgrown with weeds since then, but I want to fix it now.
All you need is two stakes, two horseshoes, and lots of patience to hook the horseshoes to the stakes. This traditional Texas game is editor Lauren’s favorite of his Zielinski. she said: “For those who haven’t played it, it’s actually not as easy as it looks. And it’s nostalgically reminded by a free jukebox, open doors, and a small honky-tonk bar full of deep-chilled South Texas Lone Star beers.” increase.” “
Some may want to quit beer pong during their school days, but I recommend upgrading your game and giving bucketball a try. It’s basically the same as traditional beer pong, but with a larger bucket and a tennis-sized ball. It can be played with or without alcohol, but alcohol definitely makes the outdoor game more difficult, more fun, and oh…adult. It takes all the fun and competitiveness out of the original game, but omits the lukewarm beer and germ-covered ping-pong balls.

That’s why this magnetic dartboard set is the perfect solution for everyone to enjoy. The board can be hung on practically any object that can, making it easy to bring this game to any gathering.
For three daughters who are avid golfers and have three daughters who didn’t have much interest in the sport growing up, croquet was something my dad would set up in the backyard and play with my sisters and me. . He loved teaching us how to hold and aim the club to get the ball through the little hoop. Again, I didn’t pay much attention to the rules, but it was always a lot of fun to see who could get through the course first.
Contributing editor Ann Campbell best describes the game as follows: (Mint he is even more perfect when paired with a julep or sundress…)
