Watch out Cornhole–there’s a new game at the tailgate!

Peoria, Ill.- Just in time for tailgating season, Pop-A-Shot, the original arcade basketball company, presents the Pop-Up, a portable version of its classic game. 

The Pop-Up is sure to become a tailgate staple. The game uses the same basketballs as any other Pop-A-Shot but weighs only 37 lbs and folds easily into its own carrying case. With a sturdy nylon ramp and powder coated steel alloy support tubes, the Pop-Up is ready for life on the move.

“The Pop-Up game will allow our users to play wherever they want,” said Tony Stucker, Pop-A-Shot’s owner. “It’s the first truly portable arcade basketball game, perfect for tailgates, backyard parties and business promotions. It’s lighter and more compact than our traditional models.”

The Pop-Up joins Pop-A-Shot’s catalog of Home and PRO Series games. The Pop-Up is now available online at and Amazon.
