Kids’ sports-themed parties in New York can take place at many a sports field and are a blast for little sports enthusiasts. They can take part in exciting sports competitions that suit their interests and abilities. From soccer and basketball mini-games to relay races and tug-of-war, these venues provide a platform for friendly rivalries and lots of giggles. Whether they are seasoned players or beginners, the joy of playing their favorite sports with friends creates cherished memories that will fill their hearts with joy. Try New York Sports Club, Aviator Sports, 92NY or Kids in Sports.
When I was a kid, I loved jumping on the trampoline – it’s so freeing and exhilarating! Give your kids the gift of soaring through the air at one of New York’s many awesome trampoline parks. The cool thing about these venues is that they don’t just have trampolines but also dodgeball, foam pit fun, slam dunk basketball, ninja courses, battle beams, obstacle courses, indoor coasters and virtual reality experiences. Our favorites include Bounce!, Launch Trampoline Park, and Urban Air.
Help grow their inner Niki Laude with a visit to the race track. Some of these bad boys reach speeds of up 45 mph. The teams involved in watching the children always ensure the safety of the little racers, so stand back and let them get a bit of an adrenaline rush. Boys love this, but some little girls love to get behind the wheel too! Take your pick from RPM, Pole Position, K1 Speed, and Grand Prix New York. Some include ninja courses, bowling lanes, arcade, and VR games, and their packages range to include party hosts, goodie bags, pizza and drinks, and temporary tattoos.
Even if you don’t live near the ocean, your kids can still experience a beach party near you! Of course, the classic Hudson River Park Pier 25 is renowned for not only sand volleyball courts, but also mini golf and yummy food options. QBK includes the sand without the sunburn, as well as dodgeball and ping pong, plus food and cake.
I’ve actually only recently gotten into tennis, thanks to my husband, who is an avid fan and played throughout his teenage years, but you can start them young, especially if you love the sport too! Tennis is one of thoss sports that seem to be simultaneously powerful and elegant. And did you know that there are some spots in New York where the kiddos can enjoy a game of tennis and a birthday party too? Including at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, home to the US Open! Don’t think the others are less cool, especially if the BJKNTC is not in your budget. Try Alley Pond, Central Park Tennis Center and an upscale Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, which has also hosted several US Open championships – but you must be a member.
These venues offer a variety of sports and interactive games, making them perfect for kids who want to have an action-packed and memorable birthday celebration. Have a blast and remember to tag us! @yombuevents
While football is the most attended sport, baseball still ranks top as the favorite sport in New York, in terms of fan following throughout season and TV ratings.
