Make a Good Sport: Build a Backyard Basketball Court

It is the final week of March 2012, and this weekend will be the NCAA Final Four basketball games in New Orleans. With a son who enjoys nothing more than shooting hoops, I have been hearing brackets, tip-off times and rankings for the past month. We’ve got our DVR set for Saturday’s games, which will determine the teams that will play at the finals on Monday evening.

After doing a little searching, I found additional ers who are large basketball fans too. One of the fantasy courts I discovered, a few are lit for night games, one includes a rock climbing wall and a particular court looks as though it was built in an old barn. Whether or not you have plans to put in a court of your own, you’re bound to love these gorgeous designs.
