How to Host a Hoops at Home Watch Party

Host a “Hoops at Home” Zoom Watch Party

Are you ready for the the Madness to start?! While in the past basketball fans would gather at their  favorite sports bars or restaurants, this year they will be watching from home or maybe even the office.

The annual NCAA college basketball tournament is a big deal and a favorite among both avid sports fan and the annual observer. The big question, besides who to root for, is how to experience the fun of watching the game with fellow friends and fans from afar.

Share Your Screen on Zoom

What did we ever do without Zoom before last March? While most of us are familiar with using Zoom for office meetings and distance learning, it is also a great tool for hosting a watch party. What we love about hosting a Zoom watch party is that you can invite as many as people as you want, it’s safe, and there’s no cleanup. All you need to do is share your screen and you and your guests watch from your preferred online app or site. If you don’t want to share your screen you can always just tune in to your own devices and watch in real time together. Don’t forget to download and print our free bracket below.
