3 reasons our family is OBSESSED with our Sport Court multi-game court
Installing a Sport Court multi-game court was by far one of the best decisions we have ever made. In fact, even though we live in super sunny Southern California (I am talking 90-100 degree temps) our kids were on our backyard court more than they were in our new pool this summer- fact!
So, what is it about a Sport Court multi-game court that has the whole family obsessed? I actually think it comes down to several key factors.
1. There are so many fun games to play ALL on one court!
Our Sport Court multi-game court appeals to the whole family, and everyone else who comes to visit, because there are so many fun games to play. Our multi-game court offers basketball, volleyball, tetherball, four square, badminton, and pickleball.
Like my husband said, “The multi-game court has encouraged us to be outside more often because there is always a new game to play.” It’s so true! While we used to have game night indoors once a week, we now find ourselves outside nearly every night playing together on our Sport Court backyard court. It never gets old when there is something new to play.
My favorite game personally and one I’ve got the girls hooked on is pickleball. The funny thing is before our Sport Court backyard court was installed, we didn’t even know what pickleball was- ha!
2. We are so much more active as a family
With so many fun games to play, we find ourselves more active as a family than ever before. It is great for our overall health and I have even noticed we are eating a lot healthier too. I think that is because when you are so active your body craves proper nutrition.
“I used to only be able to play basketball a few days a week or my knees would bother me, but ever since I have been playing on our Sport Court backyard court I have noticed I can play all week long,” my son Camden mentioned one morning.
A benefit I think many people may not realize is that Sport Court backyard court surfaces allow for Lateral-Forgiveness™ which helps reduce joint stress and fatigue without sacrificing ball bounce and response. Both my husband and son have noticed the difference.
This feature also makes the Sport Court backyard court surfaces an excellent place to work out which is what I have been doing on these gorgeous summer mornings.
3. The convenience of a court in our own backyard
The fact that the kids can walk into their own backyard at any time to shoot hoops, play tetherball, etc. has equaled so much more outside play this summer compared to other summers.
In years past, the kids have been cooped up in their rooms, alone, playing video games. It has been so great seeing them play actively together on our Sport Court multi-game court this summer. They played together more than any other summer that I can recall.
Another bonus to having your own backyard court is that your kids can improve their skills and they have a place to relax and shoot hoops when they are stressed.
In fact, Shea mentioned, “my coach commented on how much my shot improved this summer.” Makes perfect sense because Shea was on that
court at 8 am almost every morning practicing. Something he would never have been able to do without our backyard court.
BONUS- Our Sport Court backyard court has also brought us closer as a family.
The thing I am most grateful about is that our Sport Court backyard court has brought us so much closer together this summer. Last year I felt that as the boys were entering their teen years we were losing them to friends and video games. It has been so amazing to have a place we all love to hang out right in our own backyard.
It has also helped us to become the hangout house of the neighborhood, meaning so much more face time with our kids. You only have 18 summers with your kids, and a Sport Court backyard court can help you maximize the memories you make during those years.
Our Sport Court multi-game backyard court has been such a huge blessing to us so I have encouraged all of our friends and family to look into building one, too!
