EastPoint Sports Ltd., LLC, a leading supplier of indoor and outdoor recreational sporting goods, announces a partnership with Chippo Golf LLC, the ultimate mash-up of golf and cornhole. Joining EastPoint Sports' premier family of brands, Chippo introduces two new products to major retailers this spring providing even more outdoor fun to a new audience.
Following a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign in 2017, Chippo Golf LLC reached their funding goal within hours of launch and quickly became the go-to game for the beach, backyard, and tailgate. Chippo co-founders, Brendan McAuley and Matt Moss, are determined to continue changing the world of golf and backyard games through a partnership with EastPoint Sports offering new iterations of the original game to both Target and Walmart shoppers.
“Bringing our wild idea to life has been such a surreal experience. We never could have imagined how far Chippo would go,” says Brendan McAuley, Co-Founder of Chippo Golf LLC. “Now, with the support of EastPoint Sports, both Matt and I are living our dream of making Chippo even more accessible to consumers through Target and Walmart!”
Designed to combine two fan favorite games – cornhole and golf – players set two Chippo boards 15 feet apart and ‘chip’ the practice balls in three different ways. Players can compete in a series of different matches as they choose match play, cornhole-style, or “six ball” scoring. Now, there are even more ways for consumers to play the viral Chippo game with EastPoint Sports featuring all-new fabric golf target boards and reversible clubs offering easy on-the-go play for lefties and righties.
“Establishing this partnership with Brendan and Matt has been a natural fit for EastPoint Sports,” said Jonathan Berkowitz, Chief Executive Officer of EastPoint Sports. “Chippo aligns with the values we uphold focusing on family, friends and fun, and we are thrilled to help connect Chippo’s portfolio of active play products with new audiences.”
Backyard Chippo and Chippo On the Go are now available online and in-store atTargetandWalmartstarting at $30.00. Each game comes with two fabric golf target boards, two clubs with spinning reversable heads, two turf style chipping mats, and six foam style golf balls.
