Sports Party Theme


Sports fanatics and the people who love them will enjoy a sports theme party for any occasion, whether it’s a birthday, house-warming party or to watch a big game.

Invite fellow sports enthusiasts to your sports bash with construction paper cutouts in the shape of sports balls or equipment such as basketballs, baseballs and footballs. Want unique sports party invitations? Make mock tickets to a big event, or if you have tons of cash to spend, send tickets to an actual game. Have some fun with the invites with a video. Record a sports-theme message to send to guests. You can also never go wrong with sports-theme invitations, which you can get at a party store or online retailer.

The proper attire for a sports theme party includes team jersey, caps, T-shirts, wristbands, helmets, pads, etc. You can also find a costume and imitate famous stars like Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Shaq, David Beckham, etc.

The location for the party can be a sports bar, a basketball or tennis court, a park, a backyard, or practically anywhere. Turn your party space into a sports lovers dream with a TV to watch the game, tables, food, drinks, and sports video games. Hang posters of sports legends on the walls and set up a basketball hoop, volleyball net, putting green, or soccer nets. Give a sports arena feel to the party space with a stadium mural or backdrop or rent life-size sports cutouts for great photo ops.

Sports fans love competition, so have a blast by setting up relay races, swimming races, long jump contests, football or basketball games, etc. Award prizes to the winners. These can be gold, silver, or bronze medals or trophies for “Most Valuable Player.”

Athletes can work up quite an appetite. Feed hungry guests foods such as hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, chips and salsa, pretzels, snack mix, nachos and ice cream. Also serve water, beer, Gatorade and soda. Purchase sports theme dinner plates, cups, napkins, bowls, and table covers online or at party supply store.
