Our Take on Why You Should Throw a March Madness Party


Now that it’s March, you could have one thing in mind: March Madness. If this is the case, then you probably want to celebrate as much as possible. One thing that you might not have thought about, though, is the idea of hosting a March Madness party. These are a few reasons why this can actually be the perfect way to celebrate basketball this year.

It Shouldn’t Cost Much First of all, if you think that hosting a party has to be expensive, you should know that hosting a party for the basketball tournament should actually be pretty affordable. After all, you don’t have to do anything fancy or special. Just turn the game on TV, put out a few affordable snacks for everyone to munch on and provide printed brackets for everyone to fill out. If you think that buying food for everyone else will be too expensive, you can look for budget recipes that are good for a party, or you can ask everyone to bring a dish and host a potluck-style March Madness party. If you and your guests will be indulging in alcoholic beverages, consider hosting a BYOB party so that everyone will bring their own. Then, you can host a great party without having to spend a lot of money.

Watching Sports is More Fun with Friends Sure, it’s true that watching basketball by yourself at home can be fun. However, you might find that it is even more fun if you are watching all of the games with your friends. There is something exciting about watching your favorite teams while in the company of others. This is especially true if you add the biggest sports fans in your circle to your party.

You Can Enjoy a Little Friendly Competition If you like a little bit of friendly competition, you can always try having everyone at your party fill out a bracket of how they think the tournament will go. This can be a great way to make predictions about the tournament, and you and your friends can see it as a bit of a competition. After the tournament is over, you can compare brackets and see who did the best with their predictions. Luckily, this part is easy, since you can find brackets that you and your friends can fill out yourselves at sites like http://www.interbasket.net/news/23005/2018/02/blank-ncaa-tournament-bracket-for-march-madness-2018/. To make filling it out easier for yourself and your friends, consider printing out team statistics and team information; then, everyone can use this information to help them make their decisions when they are filling out their brackets, and it can be a little bit educational for everyone at your party as well.

As you can see, if you haven’t yet thought about planning a quick March Madness party for yourself and your closest friends, it might be a good idea to do so. Luckily, hosting a party for March Madness should be easy. With a little bit of planning, you should be able to pull together a party that everyone can enjoy.
