A step-by-step guide for your Bankshot™ System
1. BANKSHOT OPTIONS
The Bankshot™ Sports organization offers numerous layout options to customize the design of a facility in accordance with space designated for the Bankshot™ court. Whether indoors or outdoors, Bankshot™ can be installed imbedded or bolted down. Bankshot™ courts consist of lanes ranging between 5-8 ft width and 10-14 ft in length. Essentially an automobile parking lane, helpful in measuring out the best number of stations for a particular space. “Back-to-back” stations (requiring about 24ft in length) shooting “inward” appears to be the preferred layout when space provides for it. However, all shapes and configurations of Bankshot™ layouts may be made suitable and attractive.
Following a pending Bankshot™ order our technical department will provide a schematic layout
drawing for your area, modified in accordance with the specific space requirements.
Our local representatives will be pleased to provide consultation at your premises.

The boards slide down the poles in their sleeves and the poles are embedded or mounted (bolted) on the surface.

7. INSTRUCTIONAL INFORMATION
Instructional plaques are provided for each station. Three shooting positions are marked off at each station.
8. MAINTENANCE/CUSTOMER SERVICE
Bankshot Bankboards™ are fiberglass and are incredibly durable. Maintenance consists of painting the shooting positions on the floor approximately every 3 years and changing the nets when needed. For optimal results maintain the fiberglass surface much like an automobile fiberglass surface. Even if durable, participants should be cautioned not to hang on the rims. Signage is provided for that purpose although smaller children need not be discouraged from hands on rim contact.
The Bankshot Bankboard™ are precisely the same in every way including size, shape, weight as exhibited in the Boston Children’s Museum.

"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
