Summer weather is finally here and for all of our customers who have a basketball court installed at their home, that means the time is now to take advantage of your SportScape. There is nothing more fun than playing basketball games with your friends and family, but are you looking for a new game to play? Take a look below and maybe you’ll find a new game that you can try out!
Now, what kind of list would this be, if we didn’t mention Horse. A game you can play with 2 + people, it’s a classic game of making various shots around a court that your opponent has the chance to match. If you make your shot, your opponent has a chance to make it as well. If they make it, it’s their turn to test their skills. If they miss it, they get a letter, meaning an (H). So you keep playing until someone has accumulated H-O-R-S-E. The first one to accumulate H-O-R-S-E ends up conceding the match.
Another absolute classic, knockout can be played with as many people as you want. You start by lining up your group of people in a single file line behind the free throw line. You also start with two basketballs and give them to the first two people. The way this works is the first person shoots a free throw and make or miss, tries to get the ball and put in the hoop as fast as possible. While the first person is trying to do this, as soon as they shoot the ball, if the second person scores before the first person, they knock the first person out of the game. As soon as someone makes a basket, they give the ball to the next person in line and they try to score as fast as they can. The game moves very fast and the last person standing is the winner!
3. Around the World
A great game that can be played with 2+ people. Think of this game like you are shooting from the three point contest locations at the NBA All Star Game. When a player makes a shot at each spot, they can move to the next spot. This continues until you miss and then the next player goes next to see how far they can go. The goal of the game is to make a shot at every location on your course (Around the World). You can technically choose any spot that is in your course, but the first person to make a basket at each location wins!
4. Twenty One
Probably the most active / competitive game on this list that can be played with 2+ people. The game starts with one person dribbling the ball outside the three point line and then trying to score. Everyone that doesn’t have the ball works to stop the person from scoring but everyone works alone and is not on a team. The player once behind the three point line can shoot at any time and once they score, they get a point. If they miss a shot, they can get their own rebound and shoot it but if they miss and someone else gets the rebound they must bring the ball behind the three point line to start their time trying to score. The first player to get to 21 wins the game.
