This takes playing HORSE to a whole new level! French architecture firm a/LTA has designed the perfect urban park fixture in Nantes, France for kids of all ages and sizes! The basketball tree not only gives kids a greater chance of finding an empty hoop, but it also allows them to have a fair shot at making a basket.
The functional structure known as Arbre à Basket, roughly translated as Basket Tree, features five separate basketball hoops attached to limbs that branch out from one tree-like sculptural post. The baskets, each equipped with its own backboard, are each positioned at different heights, allowing for the all-inclusive public to engage in multiple games on the court. Tiny tots and growing kids need not shy away from the fun to be had with their height-appropriate basket. With time, they can move on to the higher hoops, creating a challenge for themselves that can span several years. (Source)
Franco: Now, if you had a choice, would you either be A) a Warrior girl dancer or, if you had a chance to play basketball in a court like that…
Dianna: I would play basketball! I would be seven feet tall, and I would just slam dunk left and right. I would have some awesome nickname, and big shoes.
