Water Balloon Games for Adults


When it comes to summer date ideas, this date night has it all- a super clever invitation and everything you need for some crazy fun water fighting games. Plus, it includes a healthy dose of competition with your better half! Even better news? This cheap date can be completed at home after the kiddos go to bed!

Water Balloon Games Invite

To get started, alert your spouse of what’s to come with a super fun, water balloon basketball inspired invite! We’re obsessed with the backboard design as it’s the perfect way to kick off these summer date ideas. To assemble, simply print, cut, and fill in the deets. Leave it somewhere for your sweetie to find (or hand-deliver it in person!) and get ready for some fun outdoor activities like never before. It seriously doesn’t get much easier than this.

Water Balloon Games Date

Basketball Water Balloon Games Setup

On the day of your date, be sure and set the stage! We’ve included everything you need to create your ‘court’ and will tell you exactly how to use each item. All you need to get your hands on is a hoop or bin of some sort. You might consider going with a child-sized basketball hoop, but you could also use a full-sized one. A trash can or bin makes for a great substitute if you’re in a pinch!Water Fighting Games for Two

Grab your point-line markers and place them across from the hoop at varying distances. Remember- the 3 point line should be much more difficult to shoot from than a 1 pointer! Next, get a little wet and wild by filling those balloons! We won’t judge you if the water fighting games get a little out of hand at this point… Once you’re ready for even more action, grab your darlin’ and get shooting! We’ll teach you exactly how we like to play Water Balloon Basketball below, but feel free to come up with your own balloon games for adults or water fighting games. The opportunities (for a good soaking!) are endless.

Water Fighting Games


  1. Divide the filled water balloons evenly between you and your sweetheart.
  2. Take turns shooting from the various point line markers – don’t be afraid to unleash your inner NBA star!
  3. Each time you make a basket, you’ll receive a corresponding point card. Rake in as many as you can as you’ll be cashing in these bad boys for some seriously sexy treats.

Summer Date Ideas & Water Balloon Games for Adults

Assembling your Sexy Point Menu is oh-so-easy and we’ll tell you exactly how to do it. Simply print the backboard portion of the menu as well as the corresponding hoop (found on the same page as your invite). Cut out the hoop and affix it to the designated spot on your menu. Voila! You’ve just created a one-of-a-kind hoop that your sweetie is going to DIE for!  Wondering how to use your sexy point menu? Simply grab the point cards you earned during your basketball game and take a peek at the menu. Each sexy item is worth a certain number of points and that amount is listed on the balloon across from it.

1 point = Kiss on the Lips

3 points = Slow Dance for Two

5 points = 10 Minute Massage

10 points = Your Choice

Cash in your point cards for any of those goodies and get ready score even more.

More Water Balloon Games for Adults

We’re obsessed with the basketball water balloon games up above but if you’re looking for even more water fun, take a look at the following 5 water balloon games:

  1. Water Balloon Spoon Race – Similar to the classic egg & spoon race, each of you will place a water balloon on a spoon and the race is on! Whoever drops their balloon is automatically out.
  2. Water Balloon Volleyball – No explanation necessary for this one. Don’t let that balloon break!
  3. Water Balloon Toss – Stand across from your spouse and take turns throwing a balloon back and forth. With each successful catch, you must take one step backward. See how far apart you can get before the balloon drops!
  4. Water Balloon Target Practice – Pick an exact spot on the side of your house or the ground and take turns aiming and throwing. You could even work in your point cards with this one!
  5. Water Balloon Roll – Try rolling a water balloon on the ground as far and fast as you can without it breaking. Bonus points for beating your spouse!
