Pop-A-Shot’s Year in Review – 2022

Pop-A-Shot’s Year in Review – 2022

As we approach the end of the year, it’s fun to reminisce about all of the great times we’ve had in the past 12 months. From new games and product enhancements to new partners and fun events, this year has flown by. You know what they say – “Time flies when you’re playing Pop-A-Shot!” That’s the saying, right? 

Here’s Pop-A-Shot’s year in review! 

Pop-Up Game

This past August, Pop-A-Shot introduced a new product – the Pop-Up Game! Designed with tailgates in mind, the Pop-Up Game folds down flat to fit in your car, and “pops up” in seconds. And with customization options, you can represent your favorite college or NBA team while you break records at the tailgate party! Want to learn more about our new Pop-Up Game? Click here!

2022 Pop-A-Shot World Championship

This past April, Pop-A-Shot traveled to Milwaukee, WI for the 2022 Pop-A-Shot World Championship. Emceed by the legendary voice of NBA Jam – Tim Kitzrow – this bracket-style tournament featured 12 of the best Pop-A-Shotters around. When it was all said and done, the winner walked away with $1,000. Not to mention, the glory and fame that comes with being the top Pop-A-Shot player in the arena. 

We had an absolute blast with the Pop-A-Shot World Championship and we cannot wait to see what 2023 has in store for the contestants. In fact, we’ve gotten so much buzz since, we may have to widen the field!

2022 NIRSA Conference

Pop-A-Shot took to their first ever conference as a company/brand in March, attending the National Intramural and Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) Conference in Portland, OR. NIRSA is an organization involving colleges and universities from all over the country. Every year, they hold a conference with different sports and fitness related exhibitors. 

We had the privilege of showcasing our products to over 2,500 event-goers, as well as providing sneak peeks to our new products coming out in 2023. We were also a sponsor for the “Hoop Shot” challenge – A $1 per game high score contest, where all proceeds were donated to the Special Olympics. 

We hope and plan on returning to the NIRSA Conference in 2023 in Pittsburgh, PA. If you’re in the area, be sure to stop by and check out our games! 

So Many Custom Games!

One thing we always ask of our customers who order custom games from us is, “Can you take some pictures of your game in action?!” There is nothing we love more than to see the joy on peoples’ faces. Take a look at some of our custom games out in the wild! 

What a great year it has been! We are very excited to see what 2023 has in store for us. Was Pop-A-Shot a part of your year in review? Share your story with us on social media!
