If you share your home with a young Michael Jordan wannabe, you know that an at-home basketball backstop is an absolute must-have. After all, it's practice, as well as talent, that gets players to the big leagues! Fortunately, you won't have to shell out big bucks to give your budding athlete what he or she needs because backstops have become very affordable.

If you, like most families, don't have the space--or money--to install an entire basketball court, you can probably find room in your budget to put a backstop and basketball net in the driveway. There's a huge variety to choose from, including wall-mounted and portable, adjustable models. There is also a vast range of prices, ranging from well under $500 for equipment suitable for home use to over $1,000 for backstops used on playgrounds.

Basketball Backstops For Fun & Fitness

So your child isn't headed for the NBA or even the high school team? It still makes sense to install a basketball backstop. Dribbling the ball around the driveway, shooting a few hoops, and playing one-on-one is a great way to increase physical fitness, relieve stress and increase family togetherness.

Basketball equipment is also a kid magnet. If you want your child's friends to hang around your house, this is one good way to attract them. Look online to discover the easiest way to fulfill your basketball and other sports equipment needs.
