How To Run a Office Pool

How to Run a Office Pool

Thinking of running an office pool for a sporting or Reality TV event and want to make it a huge success. Follow the tips on this page to maximize the enjoyment of everyone playing.

Popular pools include:

  • NFL Football (probably the most popular office pool - weekly pools, playoff pools, and the Super bowl)
  • College Football - either regular season or bowls
  • College Basketball (March Madness)
  • NBA Basketball (usually the playoffs)
  • MLB Baseball (usually the playoffs)
  • NHL Hockey (usually the playoffs)
  • Reality TV Shows (Survivor, Amazing Race, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Big Brother, etc. Anything with a weekly elimination)
  • The Oscars
  • Politics
  • Baby pools (actually the 2nd most popular - when the baby will be born, what the sex will be, how much it will weigh, etc.)

There are a large number of options on running a pool, from paper and pencil, to Excel spreadsheets, to software, to websites. Since pools by their nature require many people to input information (either a one time pick or weekly picks, depending upon the pool), the best way to run a pool is via a website. This greatly reduces the load on the person running the pool (the commissioner) and avoids using company emails for personal usage.

Good Luck!
