Mix Up Your Basketball Game!

Turn your entire neighborhood into a block party with these 5 awesome alternative basketball games!

1. Around the World
First begin with a layup, then move farther from the basket for the following shots in consecutive order:

  • Halfway between the basket and the free throw line
  • At the free throw line
  • 20-feet from the basket along either side
  • At the 3-point line
  • Center court
  • And a final lay up.

The first player to "go around the world" and make all the shots wins the game.

2. H-O-R-S-E
Start things off by taking a shot from anywhere on the court. The next player tries to make the same shot. If Player 2 makes the basket, then the next player must shoot from there. If Player 2 misses, they pick up an 'H', and the next player gets to take their shot from anywhere on the court. The goal is to contest your opponent with the most difficult selection of shots, forcing them to pick up letters with each miss. Players that spell "HORSE" lose the game.

3. Dribble Tag
Without double-dribbling or traveling, players must tag other players. Once a player has been 'tagged", they are out of the game. All players can have a basketball in the game or just the players who are "tagger". Play this game in a certain area in the court (for example: half-court) and the final remaining player is the winner.

4. Musical Basketball
If you enjoy musical chairs you will enjoy this game. Similar to musical chairs, but with basketballs. The balls are placed into a circle while players walk around it with music playing. When the music stops, all players must grab a ball and take a shot. When a player makes a successful swish, they sit. The last player standing is out and the game continues until there is one player left.

5. 60 Seconds
In 60 seconds, kids are challenge to score as many buzzer-beaters as they can. In the paint baskets are worth 1 point, outside the foul line are worth 2 points, and 3 pointers are of course worth 3 points. Learn to shoot like Stephen Curry in no time playing this game.

Going Green with Sport Court

Contribute to the environment while having a blast with an eco-friendly game court in your backyard!

Environmentally Friendly Options
Sport Court of Southern California offers concrete services, but also alternatives to concrete with our proprietary technology called SportBase. While concrete is a greatly affordable option, it is impervious meaning it does not allow liquids such as water to go through it. This helps contribute to erosion. There are pervious concrete options. But studies have shown that over time that debris within water flowing through the pervious concrete can create a build up and eventually stop the flow. By using SportBase, the subsurface allows you to "go green" by keeping the environment in mind.

Created from Recycled Materials
In addition to reducing an overwhelming amount of carbon, Sport Court game courts are made from 100% of recycled plastic. There is no use of toxic topcoats and no requirement of chemical cleaners is needed. Also, Sport Court's home basketball courts are produced in a facility that received a "zero waste" status from the SWCA Environmental Performance Group.

Drought Friendly
Our game courts are playable in weather up to 185 degrees Fahrenheit. During the winter season, there are no runoff issues as our courts have a water drainage system installed in the surface.

Long Lasting
Due to the modular design, Sport Court game courts and the subsurface can be picked up and move with you. Our products are made to last for 15 years or more for you and your family to enjoy for years to come. The portability of our courts allows clients to take their courts with them if they move rather than building a whole new court. This help reduce overall carbon footprint of installation and cost.

Guarantees High-Performance
Game courts are engineered with Lateral Forgiveness technology, provided the best surface for athletes of any age. No worries about scrapes, red burns, concussions or other injuries with this high-quality shock absorption product. Our flooring not only keeps your head in the game but is made for champions.

Create an environment that is fun-filled making everlasting memories by installing a game court with Sport Court today!

Court vs. Pool

Looking to add a fun feature to you backyard? Can't decide between a game court or a pool? Let's take a closer look at the two.

Pools require constant cleaning, heavy maintenance, and weekly services while game courts from Sport Court have minimal up keep. With a quick sweep of a broom or spray down with a hose, your court is ready for hours of play!

There are also the potential health risks. Chlorine is used to disinfect the water and is a toxin that can cause respiratory conditions such as asthma. Your body absorbs chlorine through your skin and into your lungs. Hazardous levels of chlorine can be produced with indoor or outdoor pools that have stagnant air. There is also the risk of drowning. Sport Court's products do not require the use of chemicals. They also offer a safe surface to play on and offer lateral forgiveness to lessen the stress on joints.

Save money by ditching the maintenance and chemicals of a pool. Enjoy having a blast on a custom built court right in your own backyard for the whole family to enjoy.

Make the right choice this summer by installing a court today!
