NFL And College Football Tailgates: Cornhole And The Best Accessories

 

As fall time approaches many changes begin to occur. The leaves begin to change colors, the air begins to get cold and crisp, and Saturdays and Sundays begin to be filled with NFL, College Football, and plenty of tailgating.

It is a great time of the year where many people begin to truly appreciate the last few months of good weather they have until winter (unless you live in a state with year long warm weather.) If you’ve ever been to a tailgating event at a football game, chances are you’ve seen a set of cornhole boards being enjoyed by many.

In this article we will be discussing the relationship between football tailgating and cornhole and a few of the best accessories to have at your tailgate party!

Cornhole and Football Tailgates

Fast paced, low maintenance, not many rules. These are some of the things that describe the game of cornhole. It is one of the best outdoor tailgating games on the market today and provides plenty of entertainment to people across the nation. Up to four people in a two vs two format can play the game, which makes it an interactive activity that everyone can enjoy.

The relationship between cornhole boards and football tailgating pairs together great for a number of reasons. Not only can you play the game with your friends and family, but you only need one hand available to play the game. Meaning you can continue the pre-game while playing!

Many people like to enjoy their favorite beverages of choice before going into the game or event they are attending. And since it only takes one hand to throw your bags, this means you can eat your hot dog, drink your drink, smoke your cigar, or anything else you’d like while tossing some bags!

Playing a few matches of cornhole can really get the competitive juices flowing during your tailgate pregame. By the time you head over and enter the main game or event you’ll already be in the competitive spirit and be ready to cheer your team onto victory. Get yourself a set of cornhole boards for your tailgate with your favorite team’s city on them and show your team pride!

A Few Of The Best Tailgate Accessories

Aside from having a set of cornhole boards, there are plenty of awesome other tailgate products available on the market. In this section we’re going to go over a few of the best products to have on hand at your tailgate!

Tailgate Tables

There are many situations where a tailgate table might come in handy. The most obvious situation is a football tailgate. These tables are designed in a way that makes them easily transportable and sturdy. Most tables will come with a handle attached for easy carrying.

A tailgate table can be used for a number of different things at your tailgate party. These tables make for a great surface to serve your dishes and food and are often long enough to make room for everything. Another great feature is most of these tailgate tables are regulation size tables for games like beer pong or flip cup.

Maybe you want your team’s logo on your tailgate table, maybe you want a football themed table top, regardless of what you’re looking for, you are sure to find many great tailgate tables on the market. Some providers of tailgate tables allow you to customize the tops of your tailgate table. This can be great if you have a specific design or style in mind.

Tailgate Tent

A tailgate tent is another great product to have at your tailgating event. These tents are extremely handy and provide a multitude of purposes. There are many great providers of tailgate tents on the market and you can find one that matches your team’s color or the color of your choice.

These tents can be very useful regardless of what the weather conditions are. If it is sunny and warm outside, these tents will be able to provide you with a source of shade. If the weather happens to be raining or snowing, your tailgate tent will be able to provide you with shelter to keep yourself and your things dry.

Scoring Tower

A scoring tower can be a great addition to any tailgating event. These scoring towers can be used for a number of different games and are often sold in sets of two. Whether it’s cornhole, beer pong, spike ball, or any other game that involves keeping score these towers provide a ton of features.

Some scoring towers also provide drinks holders to go along with score cards which can be perfect for your tailgate games. Although we touched on the fact you only need one hand available to play cornhole, being able to keep score and also put your drink down during a game can allow you to focus more and possibly play better.

Bluetooth Speaker

Having a speaker at your tailgate party is nothing short of a necessity. Having music playing makes for a much more enjoyable environment at any type of gathering. A bluetooth speaker specifically can be great when you consider the risks of using a typical aux plug in.

If your phone is plugged in it can be at risk during a tailgate party. Many people are drinking and enjoying themselves at tailgate parties and not exactly paying attention to their surroundings. If your phone or laptop is plugged in and playing music it could get knocked over, have a drink spilled on it, or something accidentally dropped on it.

Bluetooth speakers are convenient when you consider the fact you can change the song or adjust the volume straight from your phone in your pocket. A LED bluetooth speaker that doubles as a scorekeeper can be a great investment. Not only can you adjust the music from your phone in your pocket, but this allows you to keep score of any games you might be playing during your tailgate.
