BasketPong Now Available at Tailgating Ideas Online Store

New Game Combines the Competitiveness and Skill of Games Like Basketball and Darts With the Fun and Excitement of Other Outdoor Activities Such as Bean Bag Toss or Corn Hole

BRIDGEPORT, WV--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2012) - XPS, creator of innovative and exciting games for recreation, fun and tailgating, is pleased to announce that its new BasketPong™ game is now available for sale on the Tailgating Ideas online store: Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com. BasketPong combines the competitiveness and skill of games like basketball and darts with the excitement of other outdoor activities such as bean bag toss or corn hole. 

BasketPong comes in a lightweight, compact carrying case and can be easily assembled for play within minutes. Similar to a basketball hoop, BasketPong features a vertical set-up, including a backboard, stand and base. The backboard features eight slots to insert rims and cups or nets in different patterns, which allows you to customize the game and play at various skill levels. The goal of the game is to eliminate each basket by shooting the BasketPong balls into the cups or nets. Additionally, traditional basketball-related games such as Horse or 21 can be played. BasketPong is also suited for play in a swimming pool because it floats.

"We are pleased that BasketPong is available for sale at Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com," said Paul Cappuccio, founder of XPS. "Casual and avid tailgaters alike will enjoy the game variety and portability offered by BasketPong, which can be played by people of all ages."
