They say that one is the loneliest number, especially when it comes to playing on your backyard basketball court. There may come days when your neighbor just isn’t feeling up to playing because he’s having a quiet day indoors. There’s the chance that your father is stuck at the office, your brother has an important essay he needs to finish and mom is cleaning the house.  This leaves you, the sole player, on your court.

However, hope is not lost. There are plenty of ways to have fun on your Sport Court home basketball court if you find yourself playing alone. Remember, it only takes one to play ball.


If you’re the kind of athlete who likes to practice hours, you may find yourself lacking a team to practice with. Lucky for you, one of the accessories that is offered with a Sport Court game court are rebounders.

This is an ideal way to practice passing and ball control. A goalkeeper can also benefit from this, as they can use the rebounder as a “kick taker” to improve their save reflexes.

Tennis Players can practice their serves and returns with these rebounders as well. This will improve their reaction times and the power in their serves, since the rebounder will return the ball using the strength of the player.

Training Course

With all that room to yourself, you can set up a training/obstacle course to help improve your game. The best way to do this is by putting down some plastic cones to dribble past. These should be set up in various patterns and directions to keep the player moving as much as possible.

The end of the course should be set up so that the player can take a shot, whether it be with a basketball or soccer ball. The course will help build endurance, concentration and accuracy.

No matter how crazy life gets or how busy your teammates are, a home basketball court will always be there for you. Get out there onto your backyard basketball court, improve your game and impress your friends with your newly developed skill.
