XPS to Exhibit BasketPong at the National Hardware Show Booth #TG520 in the Tailgate Area

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

HAMMONTON, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - XPS, LLC, creator of innovative and exciting games for recreation, fun and tailgating, is pleased to announce that it will showcase BasketPong™ at the National Hardware Show, Las Vegas Convention Center, May 7-9. Visitors are encouraged to stop by booth #TG520 in the Tailgate and Outdoor Recreation area to try BasketPong, which combines the competitiveness and skill of basketball and darts with the excitement of other games such as bean bag toss or corn hole. 

BasketPong comes in a lightweight, compact carrying case and can be easily assembled for play within a few 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, 21 and Around the World can be played. BasketPong is also suited for play in a swimming pool because it floats.

"BasketPong is ideally suited to provide hours of entertainment wherever you go. From indoors to outdoors, in the backyard or tailgating, or even in the swimming pool, BasketPong offers fun for all ages and skill levels," said Paul Cappuccio, founder of XPS. "BasketPong fans really enjoy the variety of game-play options and the convenience and portability of its carrying case."

The National Hardware Show is the leading trade show for the $343 billion U.S. home aftermarket industry and attracts a worldwide audience of more than 27,000 industry professionals annually. More information on the National Hardware Show can be found at www.nationalhardwareshow.com
