Many people think the only sport that can be played on an outdoor basketball court is basketball. That might be true on some courts, but a Sport Court game court can be used to play a variety of games (some that you might not have even heard of).
Futsal is like soccer. The only differences are: futsal is played on a hard court; it is played using a smaller ball; there is a maximum of five players per team including the goalkeeper; and unlike indoor soccer, walls or boards are not used.
Sport Court game courts are perfect for this fast-paced game that places an added emphasis on being creative, individual technique and ball control over that of its better-known sibling sport, soccer.
Badminton is a sport that has been included in the Summer Olympics since 1992. It is a gamed played with rackets, where players hit a shuttlecock back and forth across a net, similar to a volleyball net. A shuttlecock is a feathered or plastic projectile that flies differently from the balls used in other sports.
Each side may only hit the shuttlecock once before it must pass over to the other side. If the shuttlecock hits the floor on your side, the other side scores a point. This game is played until one team scores 21 points and is declared the winner.
Your outdoor basketball court can be turned into a badminton court with only a few accessories. If you get yourself a couple of rackets, a net and a shuttlecock, you’ll be on your way to becoming a badminton pro in no time.
Handball is also known as team handball. It is played with two teams of seven players each. Teams work to pass a ball and throw it into the goal of the other team. Once a player receives the ball, they can either pass, shoot or keep possession of the ball. If they want to move, they must dribble the ball or can take up to three steps within three seconds.
If you are thinking of picking up a new sport that you can play on your outdoor basketball court, then look no further. Handball is fast-paced and high-scoring. Professional teams currently score between 20 and 35 goals in a normal game.
These three sports are great to throw into your sport rotation. Invite some friends over, teach them the rules and you’re in store for a fun afternoon on your Sport Court outdoor basketball court.
