Bankboards™ are fitted with traditional rims and supported on steel poles,
either embedded or anchor-bolted into the playing surface.
Permanent courts are made up of a series of angled, curved and non-conventionally configured brightly colored fiberglass backboards, called Bankboards. These Bankboards are fitted with traditional rims and supported on steel poles, either embedded or anchor-bolted into the playing surface.
Each Bankshot "station" is made up of one or more of these Bankboards. Players proceed from one station to the next.

Indoors or Out
Permanent courts can be installed either indoors or outdoors. The surface is usually an asphalt or concrete pad, but Bankshot courts have also been installed on grass, using stepping stones for shooting positions.
Size and Configuration
A Bankshot Basketball court can have anywhere from 3 to 24 stations. The Bankshot Organization offers 6 different permanent court sizes and a wide range of layouts to choose from.
The number of stations and the configuration of stations determines the court size and dimensions.
Courts around the World
There are approximately 200 permanent Bankshot courts throughout the world! Over 100 of these are located in the United States and the rest can be found in Japan, Austria, Germany, China, Italy, Canada, Guam, the Philippines, Israel, France, Korea, Australia and South America.

"We played at the Bankshot today. All the children had a great time - not just the 'sporty' ones! The teachers were commenting how good it was that so many kids could play at the same time. Thanks!!"Helen Cordova
