LOS ANGELES, Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- This Labor Day, Sport Chalet, Inc., a specialty sporting goods retailer, is encouraging consumers to celebrate the holiday with family and friends by gathering to play outdoor lawn games. In addition to providing entertainment, lawn games can help people stay active through the last weekend of summer. Sport Chalet Expert Phillip Szto compiled the following top 10 list of lawn activities to help narrow down choices that are fit for the whole family:

  1. Gather a group on the lawn for a game of Bocce Ball with the Halex Premier 107Mm Bocce Ball Set. The set comes with a convenient carry bag for playing on-the-go.
  2. There are no clubs or holes required to play the game of ladder golf. Use the Franklin Golf Toss to test throwing skills and hand-eye coordination.
  3. Complete with a net, stakes, rackets and birdies, the Baden Badminton Set includes all the essentials needed to start a game.
  4. Horseshoes is an American classic that can be played casually or tournament style with the Franklin Advanced Horseshoe Set. The quality set is sanctioned by the National Horseshoe Pitcher's Association.
  5. Bump, set and spike into a volleyball match with the Park & Sun Sports Play III Volleyball Set. Stage the volleyball net on the grass or in the sand for an extra challenge.
  6. Pick up a mallet and aim for the wicket during a game of croquet using the Banden Deluxe Croquet Set.
  7. Assemble the Park & Sun Sports Deluxe Tetherball Set  to bring this "playground favorite" home. The kit is easy to set up, move and take down.
  8. For those interested in competitive disc golf, a beginner-friendly bundle such as the Innova Golf Disc 3-Pack Set will prime players with the essentials needed to test their precision and accuracy during a round of this increasingly popular game.
  9. For a modern take on Frisbee, the Zume Dizk Flying Disc features a custom design with a center hole that allows more ways to catch and throw.
  10. Consumers looking for a challenge can check out the compact bean bag toss, such as the Franklin FOLD-N-GO Shooters.

"Every year, generations of consumers rally behind lawn games as a quintessential part of Labor Day weekend. To help mark the 'send off' to summer, Sport Chalet is offering the nostalgic games needed to get outside and start playing," says Szto.
