A basketball hoop and a ball is really all you really need to have in order to have great time on your home basketball court. However, if you want to take your home court to the next level, you might look into some of these cool basketball hoop accessories.
If you want your home court to feel like a pro court, then you can’t go wrong by laying down some court lines. A free throw line and three point line will make your games more interesting and a lot more fun. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can get this effect — both temporary and permanent.
Spalding Chalk Court Marking Kit
If you want something simple that will give you an idea on where the court lines are, but doesn’t permanently mark up your driveway, a good option is the Spalding Chalk Court Marking Kit.
