How a Backyard Basketball Court Can Improve Health and Wellness Post-Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us a lot of important things. It caused people to start being more conscious of their health and wellness, both physically and mentally. It also taught us to spend time with our loved ones and to appreciate social interactions. An excellent way to achieve all these important things is by installing a basketball, tennis, or any other sports court right at home. Having a sports court installed at home will positively impact physical and mental health and allow for those social interactions. Learn about all the ways that an outdoor basketball court can help improve your health and wellness post-pandemic.

Physical Health

Basketball is a very intense game that requires a lot of focus, strength, and stamina. Having a basketball court right at home can help build lower and upper body strength over time while perfecting hand-eye coordination. Being active will also improve overall health, from improving respiratory to cardiovascular functions.

Mental Health

In addition to physical health benefits, being active also has a significant influence on mental health. Participation in physical activities such as basketball causes a release of a hormone called endorphins. Endorphins boost self-esteem, happiness and reduce stress. It is also shown that endorphins can help depression and anxiety. Take advantage of a backyard basketball court to improve your physical and mental health after the hardships of this pandemic.

Social Interactions

Being restricted with social interactions was very hard on everyone’s social life, especially children who need social interactions to achieve normal growth development and communication skills. With schools being shut down, remote learning, and social distancing, children could not have these regular social interactions with other children. Now that summer is here, and most people are vaccinated, it is more important than ever to increase those social interactions for your kids. Having a basketball court installed in your backyard is a fun and safe way for kids to play their favorite games, hang out with friends and make new ones. Sports courts can also double as tennis courts that will just increase the fun for your children!

The COVID-19 pandemic brought a lot of stress and hardships to families across the world. Restore some of those hardships by having fun and spending time with family and friends. If you are interested in installing a sports court at home, contact 360 SportScapes and start focusing on your health and wellness!
