You probably think Sports Authority is just a place to get soccer balls, sneakers, and athletic gear. I thought that too, until my online travels brought me to their website. As it turns out, Sports Authority’s catalogue extends far beyond the basketball hoops and hockey sticks. In fact, you can plan for your entire Fourth of July barbeque (or any other outdoor summer party) with a trip to Sports Authority, either online or in store.
Take a look at Sports Authority’s Outdoor page and you might be surprised at the diversity of their items for sale. From sheds to outdoor games, you can find just about everything you need for an entire summer of perfect outdoor entertainment. Shop the backyard living department, gather all your friends, and you’re ready to party—just add burgers!
Grills & Fire
The first thing you’ll need for your cookout is a grill, of course. Sports Authority carries all the top names, marked down to help you celebrate Independence Day. Shop brands like Char-Broil, Coleman, and Eastman in both charcoal and propane styles. For smaller areas or tail-gates, try the Picnic Plus game Day Gas Grill Set, the Char-Broil Tabletop Grill, or the Coleman Roadtrip LXE Portable Grill. You can also stock up on a Deluxe BBQ set with all the tools you’ll need to get the burgers and dogs cooking.
Fire pits and space heaters are another great item to have on hand for those cooler summer nights outdoors. Shop camp fire pits, propane heaters, auto heaters, and heater/cooker combos—everything you need for a late night outdoors or a weekend camping trip away.
Insect Control & Canopies
Keep your guests comfortable and bug-free with all the necessities at Sports Authority. Shop bug sprays, ultrasonic devices, outdoor lanterns, and mosquito nets to keep pesky pests at bay. For sun protection and additional screening, shop a wide range of canopies and screens at Sports Authority. Choose from canopies, cabanas, or canopy/gazebo accessories, starting with pop-up tents and 10 x 10 weekender canopies. Whether you’re camping or hosting a cookout, you’ll find the right size shade and insect control that you require.
Go fancy with an arbor or go simple with lounge chairs, but you’re sure to find the seating that suits your backyard gathering at Sports Authority. Get some shade underneath a standing umbrella or coordinate your outdoor look with an ornate set of table and chairs. Shop picnic tables, benches, and other great seating solution for both patios and lawns. Even pick up some new beach chairs while you’re at it, like the Alpine Design Deluxe Folding Arm Chair with Shade (on sale for only $19.99!)
Once you’ve got all the right gear for your Fourth of July BBQ, be sure to choose entertainment and other accessories you’ll need, like hammocks and coolers. Sports Authority walks you through the party planning process category by category, so you can pick up bug spray, badminton, and a grill all in the same, easy place.
