March Madness Comes Home

March Madness is here and not a moment too soon for those wanting to stretch their spring legs. If you’re looking for some great ideas on how to watch the tournament, check out our Super Bowl post, but if you have the itch to shoot some hoops, maybe it’s time to put in a court of your own.

Outdoor courts and hoops have been staples of suburban America for decades: providing enough open space to shoot threes and play small-sided games. While a hoop hanging over the garage will suffice for many, there’s so much room for innovation, like building a patio court with a beautiful, wooded backdrop.

Although we have had a pleasantly mild winter this year, that’s not always the case in New England.  As a general matter, an outdoor hoop around here would only be used for a part of the year. While for many an indoor hoop isn’t an obvious possibility,  it can be as attainable as a hoop in the garage.

The other quick fix is, of course, to incorporate a hoop into an existing bedroom without needing too many alterations.

If you’re willing to dedicate a bit more space, multipurpose rooms can be a great place to hang a hoop while not losing too much space when you aren’t playing. You’ll still be able to shoot free throws, without sacrificing the utility of the room for other activities.

Basketball fanatics will really want to make a fast break for hardwood flooring, though, as it provides the most authentic experience. You’ll be playing half-court and sinking threes from the comfort of your own house—not having to bear frigid temperatures outside during basketball season will be nice too.

Whichever option suits your fancy, incorporating basketball into your home is not only a healthy decision, but an accessible one. What could be better than having guests over for the game only to take a break and shoot hoops at halftime?
